7. APP. CLAUDIUS
APP. F. APP. N. CRASSUS (or CRASSINUS), son of No. 5, was consular tribune in B. C. 403.
It was this Appius who was the author of the important measure, that the proceedings of the tribunes might be stopped by the veto of one of the college. (Niebuhr, vol. ii. p. 439, note 965.) Livy (5.3
