5. Q. Fabius Pictor, probably son of No. 4, was praetor B. C. 189. The lot gave him Sardinia as his province, but as he had been consecrated flamen Quirinalis in the preceding year, the pontifex maximus, P. Licinius, compelled him to remain in Rome. Fabius was so enraged at losing his province that he attempted to abdicate, but the senate compelled him to retain his office, and assigned to him the jurisdiction inter peregrines. He died B. C. 167. (Liv. 37.47, 50, 51, 45.44.)
