Pennus

3. M. Junius Pennus, of No. 2, was tribune of the plebs, B. C. 126, in which year he brought forward a law for expelling all strangers or foreigners (peregrini)from Rome. This law was opposed by C. Gracchus, because the peregrini were of assistance to him in his struggle with the aristocracy, but it was carried notwithstanding. Pennus was afterwards elected to the aedileship, but died before obtaining any higher honour in the state. (Cic. Brut. 28, de Off. 3.11; Fest. s.v. Respublica.
