5. L. Furius, was praetor in the Gallic war, which ensued immediately after the close of the Hannibalian war, B. C. 200. He was stationed at Ariminum, and as the Gauls laid sieve to Cremona he hastened thither with his army, and fought a great battle, in which the Gauls, after having sustained enormous losses, were routed and put to flight. This victory created great joy at Rome ; and, on his return, L. Furius claimed the honour of a triumph, which, after some opposition on the part of the elder senators, was granted to him. (Liv. 31.21, 47-49.)
