Praetexta'tus, Sulpi'cius

2. Ser. Sulpicius Praetextatus, four times consular tribune, namely in B. C. 377, 376, 370, 368. He married the elder daughter of M. Fabius Ambustus; and it is said that the younger daughter of Fabius, who was married to Licinius Stolo, urged on her husband to procure the consulship for the plebeians, as she was jealous of the honours of her sister's husband. Niebuhr has pointed out the worthlessness and contradictions in this tale. (Liv. 6.32-34, 36, 38; Niebuhr, Hist. of Rome, vol. iii. pp. 2, 3.)
