2. Cn. Genucius
, was tribune of the plebs in B. C. 473, and used the most vehement exertions to carry into effect the agrarian law, for the evasion of which he brought a charge against L. Furius and C. Manlius, the consuls of the preceding year.
The patricians were greatly alarmed, and assassinated Genucius in his bled on the night before the accasation was to be brought before the people. (Liv. 2.54
