1. C. Hostilius Tubulus, praetor urbanus B. C. 209, was stationed in Etruria in the following year (B. C. 208) as propraetor with the command of two legions. He received orders from the senate to keep an especial watch upon Arretium, which was suspected of an inclination to revolt to Hannibal, and he therefore took away as hostages one hundred and twenty children of the senators of the town. Next year (B. C. 207) Tubulus was sent from Etruria to Tarentum, and in the course of the same year from the latter place to Capua; but while marching to Capua he fell upon Hannibal's army, killed four thousand men, and took nine standards. He continued in the command at Capua till the end of B. C. 203. (Liv. 27.6, 7, 11, 22, 24, 35, 40, xxviii, 10, 29.13.)
