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; Liv. Epit. xx., 22.17 ; Plut. Marc. 3; Oros. 4.13; Zonar. viii. p. 403. c.; Plin. II. H. N. 3.20.)
