Pinna, Caeci'lius

one of the Roman commanders in the Social or Marsic war, is said to have defeated the Marsi in several battles, in conjunction with L. Murena (Liv. Epit. 76). As this Caeciiius Pinna is not mentioned elsewhere, it is conjectured that we ought to read Caecilius Pius, since we know that Caecilius Metellus Pius played a distinguished part iu this war.
