[707] The name Clausus seems to be taken from the later legend of Attus or Atta Clausus, who shortly after the establishment of the commonwealth migrated to Rome from Regillum with a large number of followers, who were formed into the Claudian tribe, while he himself was known as App. Claudius Sabinus Regillensis (Dict. B. ‘Claudius’). “Agmen agens” below v. 804. ‘Agminis instar:’ his strength and bravery made him worth an army—as we say, a host in himself.
