1. L. Apustius
Fullo, L. F. C. N., consul in B. C. 226.
There prevailed at Rome in his consulship a panic of Gaulish invasion. The Sibylline books foretold that the Gauls and Greeks should possess the city.
At once to fulfil and avert the prophecy, the pontiffs directed a Gaulish man and woman and a Greek man and woman to be buried alive in the ox-market at Rome.
The whole of Fullo's consulship was employed in preparations for a Gaulish war and a general levy of the Italian people. (Plb. 2.22
