3. Q. Flavius
, an augur who, according to Valerius Maximus (8.1.7), was accused before the people by the aedile, C. Valerius, perhaps the same who was curule aedile in B. C. 199. (Liv. 31.50
.) When fourteen tribes had already voted against Flavius, and the latter again asserted his innocence, Valerius declared that he did not care whether the man was guilty or innocent provided he secured his punishment ; and the people, indignant at such conduct, acquitted Flavius.
