Mamerci'nus

2. TIB. AEMILIUS MAM. N. MAMERCUS, L. F., son of No. 1, was consul in B. C. 470 with L. Valerius Potitus. Their year of office was one of considerable agitation, on account of the agrarian law and the trial of App. Claudius. Tib. Mamercus supported the law along with his father, because the latter had been wronged by the senate. [No. 1.] He also led an army into the country of the Sabines, but did not perform anything of consequence. (Liv. 2.61, 62; Dionys. A. R. 9.51, 55; Diod. 11.69.) He was consul a second time in B. C. 467 with Q. Fabius Vibulanus, and again warmly supported the agrarian law: in each year it was no doubt the execution of the Cassian law which he endeavoured to carry into effect. In this year he was to some extent successful. Without disturbing the occupiers of the public land, some land which had been taken from the Volsci in the preceding year was assigned to the plebs, and a colony sent to Antium. Mamercus carried on war against the Sabines again in this year. (Liv. 3.1; Dionys. A. R. 9.59; Diod. 11.74; comp. Niebuhr, Hist. of Rome, vol. ii. pp. 229, 230.)
