10. TIB. AEMILIUS TIB. F. TIB. N. MAMERCINUS, consul B. C. 339 with Q. Publilius Philo. Aemilius, invested his colleague with the dictatorship, for the purpose of depriving the curiae of a great part of their power. (See Dict. of Ant. s. v. Publiliae Leges.) Livy attributes the appointment of Publilius by Aemilius to disappointment on the part of the latter, who had been refused a triumph by the senate; but respecting the real reason for this step, see Niebuhr, Hist. of Rome, vol. iii. p. 146, &c. (Liv. 8.12.)
