Marcellus Clau'dius

6. M. Claudius Marcellus, M. F. M. N., probably a brother of the preceding, though bearing the same praenomen, was consul in B. C. 183, with Q. Fabius Labeo. (Liv. 39.44; Fast. Capit.) It seems probable that he is the same person who is mentioned (Liv. 39.23) as one of the praetors two years before (B. C. 185), though his name is there written in many of the editions and MSS. of Livy Marcellinus. Liguria was assigned to both the consuls as their province; but the arms of Marcellus were in fact directed against a body of Gauls who had lately crossed the Alps, and settled themselves in the territory of Aquileia. They, however, submitted on the approach of the consul, were disarmed, and compelled to return across the mountains. After this he carried his arms into lstria, but apparently effected little, and was soon obliged to return to Rome to hold the comitia. (Liv. 10.29.45, 54-56.) He held the sacerdotal office of decenmvir sacrorum, and died in B. C. 169. (Liv. 44.18.)
