4. L. Lucretius
Triciptinus, T. F. T. N., son of No. 2, was consul in B. C. 462 with T. Veturius Geminus Cicurinus.
He fell upon the Volscians, when they were returning from an invasion of the Roman territory laden with booty, and nearly annihilated the whole army.
He obtained in consequence the honour of a triumph.
In the following year he exerted himself warmly to save Kaeso Quintius, who was brought to trial by the tribune Virginius. (Liv. 3.8
; Dionys. A. R. 9.69
.) Triciptinus is mentioned by Dionysius (11.15
) as one of the distinguished senators who spoke in favour of the abolition of the decemvirate in B. C. 449.
