Trige'minus, P. Curia'tius Fistus

consul B. C. 453. and one of the first decemvirate, is spoken of under FISTUS. The cognomen Trigeminus shows that he pretended to be descended from one of the three Curiatii who fought with the Horatii; and it appears from coins, a specimen of which is annexed, that some of the Curatii in later times laid claim to a similar descent. On the obverse of the coin is the head of Pallas with TRIGE (i. e. Trigeminus), and on the reverse a woman driving a quadriga with Victory standing behind her, and the legend C. CVR (C. Cariatius), and below ROMA. (Eckhel, vol. v. p. 199, foll.)
