Among the Volscians, with whom the Romans were at war, the city of Corioli took highest rank. When, therefore, Cominius the consul had invested this place,1 the rest of the Volscians, fearing for its safety, came to its aid against the Romans from all parts, designing to give them battle in front of the city and to attack them on both sides.

1 It is in connection with the attack on Coroli that Livy first mentions Marcius (ii. 33, 5-9); also Dionysius Hal. (vi. 92).
