Priscus, Servi'lius

7. Q. Servilius Q. F. P. N. (PRISCUS) FIDENAS, the son of No. 6, was consular tribune six times, namely in B. C. 402, 398, 395, 390, 388, 386. (Liv. 5.8, 14, 24, 36, 6.4, 6.) He was also interrex in B. C. 397. (Liv. 5.17.) There can be no doubt that this Servilius was the son of No. 6, both from his praenomen Quintus, and his surname Fidenas, as well as from the circumstances that he is designated in the Capitoline Fasti, Q. F. P. N. A difficulty, however, arises from the statement of Livy, that the C. Servilius, who was consular tribune in B. C. 418, was the son of the conqueror of Fidenae (Liv. 4.45, 46); but this is probably a mistake, since the consular tribune of B. C. 418 is called, in the Capitoline Fasti, C. SERVILIUS AXILLA., Q. F. C. N. Besides which, if he were the son of the conqueror of Fidenae, he must have been a younger son, as his praenomen shows; and in that case the younger son would have obtained one of the highest dignities in the state sixteen years before his elder brother.
