Ma'ximus, Vale'rius

2. M. VALERIUS VOLUSI N. LACTUCA MAXIMUS, M'. F., son of the preceding, was consul in B. C. 456. He opposed Icilius, tribune of the plebs, in his efforts to assign the Aventine hill to the conmons. 2 (Dionys. A. R. 10.31-33; Liv. 3.31.) The cognomen Lactuca, lettuce, a favourite esculent of the early Romans (Mart. 10.14) belongs to the same class of surnames as Cicer (Cicero) (Plin. Nat. 18.3; Plut. Cic. 1) and Stolo in the Licinian family. (Varr. R. R. 1.2.)
