Tu'llius, A'ttius

the celebrated king of the Volscians. to whom Coriolanus fled. when he was banished from Rome, and who induced his people to make war upon the Romans. with Coriolanus as their general. For details and authorities, see CORIOLANUS. In the best MSS. of Livy the name is written Attius Tullius, and in Zonaras we also find Τούλλιος; but in Dionysius and Plutarch the form Τύλλος occurs. Tullius, and not Tullus is the correct form. (Alschefski, ad Liv. 2.37 ; Niebuhr, Hist. of Rome, vol. ii. note 217.)
