Torqua'tus, Ma'nlius

5. A. Manlius Torquatus Atticus, T. F. T. N., son of No. 3, was censor B. C. 247 with A. Atilius Calatinus, consul for the first time in 244 with C. Sempronius Blaesus, and for the second time in 241 with Q. Lutatius Cerco. In his second consulship Torquatus defeated the Falisci, who had taken up arms and obtained a triumph in consequence. (Fasti Capit.; Eutrop. 2.28; Oros. 4.11; comp. Liv. Ep. 19 ; Plb. 1.65.) Pliny (Plin. Nat. 7.53. s. 54) speaks of the sudden death of a consular A. Manlius Torquatus, who may have been either the subject of this notice or No. 9.
