Pindar, Pythian (ed. Diane Arnson Svarlien), Pythian 7 For Megacles of Athens Four-Horse Chariot Race 486 B. C. (search)
Pythian 7 For Megacles of Athens Four-Horse Chariot Race 486 B. C. The great city of Athens is the most beautiful prelude of song, which the widely powerful race of the Alcmaeonids can lay as a foundation of odes in honor of their horses.What fatherland, what family will you name that is more illustrious in Greece? For in all cities the storyof the citizens of Erechtheus makes the rounds, Apollo, how they made your dwelling in divine Pytho a marvel to see. Five Isthmian victories lead my song forward, and one outstanding triumphat Zeus' Olympian games, and two from Cirrha— yours, Megacles, and your ancestors'. I rejoice at this new success; but I grieve that fine deeds are repaid with envy.It is true what they say: the abiding bloom of good fortune brings with it both good and bad.
Rabuleius 1. C. Rabuleius, tribune of the plebs, B. C. 486, attempted to mediate between the consuls in the disputes occasioned between them by the agrarian law proposed by the consul Sp. Cassius in that year. (Dionys. A. R. 8.72.)

against the Volscians is only an inference adopted by Livy from the absence of the consul, who, he supposes, had left Rome in order to take the oath to the treaty among the Latins. In the same year Cassius consecrated the temple of Ceres, Bacchus, and Proserpine, which the dictator A. Postumius Albus had vowed in B. C. 498. (Liv. 2.33; Cic. de Rep. 2.33, pro Balb. 23; Dionys. A. R. 6.49, 94, 95; respecting the league with the Latius, see Niebuhr, Hist. of Rome, vol. ii. p. 38, foll.) In B. C. 486 Cassius was consul a third time with Proculus Virginius Tricostus Rutilus. He marched against the Volscians and Hernicans, but no battle took place as the enemy sued for a peace. Notwithstanding he obtained a triumph over these people on his return to Rome, which is recorded in the triumphal Fasti. Whether he really marched against these people or not, may be doubted; but that he formed a league with the Hernicans, admits of no question. By his league with the Latins in his second consulsh
