Tre'mulus, Q. Ma'rcius

a plebeian, was twice consul with the patrician P. Cornelius Arvina, the first time in B. C. 306. and the second time in B. C. 288. In his first consulship Tremulus carried on wars against the Hernici and Anagnini, whom he conquered with ease, and then marched to the assistance of his colleague in Samnium. On his arrival in the latter country he was unexpectedly attacked by the Samnites, but Cornelius came to his succour, and the two armies gained a brilliant victory over the enemy. Cornelius remained in Samnium, but Tremulus returned to Rome, where he celebrated a triumph over the Hernici and Anagnini, and an equestrian statue was erected to him in the forum before the temple of Castor. (Liv. 9.42, 43; Fasti Capit.; Cic. Phil. 6.5; Plin. Nat. 34.6.)
