3. SP. SERVILIUS PRISCUS STRUCTUS, consul B. C. 476, with A. Virginius Tricostus Rutilus.
In consequence of the destruction of the Fabii at the Cremera in the preceding year, the Etruscans had advanced up to the very walls of Rome, and taken possession of the hill Janiculus.
In an attempt which Priscus made to take this hill by assault, he was repulsed with great loss, and would have sustained a total defeat, had not his colleague Virginius come to his assistance.
In consequence of his rashness on this occasion, he was brought to trial by the tribunes, as soon as his year of office had expired, but was acquitted. (Liv. 2.51
