9. Cn. Octavius
Cn. N., M. F. (Fasti Capit.
), son of No. 7, was consul B. C. 76, with C. Scribonius Curio.
He is described as a man of a mild temper, although he was a martyr to the gout, in consequence of which he appears to have lost the use of his feet.
As an orator he was of little account. (Cic. Brut. 60
, de Fin.
2.28; Sall. Hist.
ii. p. 205, ed. Gerl. min.; Obseq. 121.)
