Fu'rius

a Roman jurist, who was peculiarly skilful in the jus praediatorium (Dict of Ant. s. v. Praes,) for being himself a praediator, he took a personal interest in the law relating to the subject. It was for this reason that Q. Mucius Scaevola, the augur, though learned himself in every department of the law, used to refer to Furius and Cascellius (who was also a praediator) the clients who came to consult him on praediatorian law. (Cic. pro Balb. 20; V. Max. 8.12.1.) This Furious is probably identical with C. CAMILLUS. [See Vol. I. p. 592b.]
