Latera'nus, L. Se'xtius Sexti'nus
was the friend and supporter of the celebrated C. Licinius Calvus Stolo in his attempts to throw open the consulship to the plebeians.
He was the colleague of Licinius in the tribunate of the plebs from B. C. 376 to 367; and upon the passing of the Licinian laws in the latter of these years, he was elected to the consulship for the year B. C. 366, being the first plebeian who had obtained that dignity. (Liv. 6.35
.) For an account of the Licinian laws, see Vol. I. p. 586b., and the authorities there referred to.
The name of Sextius Lateranus does not occur again under the republic, but re-appears in the times of the empire. Thus we find in the Fasti a T. Sextius Magius Lateranus consul in A. D. 94, and a T. Sextius Lateranus consul in A. D. 154.
