Philo, Vetu'rius

1. L. Veturius Post. N. Philo, L. F., was consul B. C. 220, with C. Lutatius Catulus, two years before the commencement of the second Punic war. The two consuls are stated to have advanced as far as the Alps, and to have gained many people for the Romans without fighting; but we have no particulars of their expedition. In the second year of the Punic war, B. C. 217, Philo was appointed dictator for the purpose of holding the comitia, and in B. C. 210 he was censor with P. Licinius Crassus Dives, and died while he held this office. (Zonar. 8.20, p. 405a.; Liv. 22.33, 27.6).
