Poti'tus, Vale'rius

4. L. Valerius Potitus, described in the Capitoline Fasti as L. F. P. N., consular tribune five times, namely in B. C. 414, 406, 403, 401, 398 (Liv. 4.49, 58, 5.1, 10, 14). He was also twice consul; first in B. C. 393, with P. Cornelius Maluginensis Cossus, in which year both consuls had to resign, through some fault in the auspices (vitio facli), and L. Lucretius Flavus Tricipitinus and Ser. Sulpicius Camerinus were chosen in their stead; and a second time in the following year, B. C. 392, with M. Manlius, in which year both the consuls celebrated the great games, which had been vowed by the dictator M. Furius, and also carried on war against the Aequi. In consequence of their success in this war, Valerius obtained the honour of a triumph, and Manlius of an ovation (Liv. 5.31; Dionys. A. R. 1.74). In the same year Valerius was the third interrex appointed for holding the comitia (Liv. 5.31), and in B. C. 390, the year in which Rome was taken by the Gauls, he was magister equitum to the dictator M. Furius Camillus. (Liv. 5.48.)
