Denter, Caeci'lius

1. L. Caecilius Denter, was consul in B. C. 284, and praetor the year after. In this capacity he fell in the war against the Senones and was succeeded by M'. Curius Dentatus. (Liv. Epit. 12; Oros. 3.22 ; Plb. 2.19; Fast. Sicul.) Fischer in his Römisch. Zeittafeln makes him praetor and die in B. C. 285, and in the year following he has him again as consul. Drumann (Gesch. Roms, ii. p. 18) denies the identity of the consul and the praetor, on the ground that it was not customary for a person to hoid the praetorship the year after his consulship; but examples of such a mode of proceeding do occur (Liv. 10.22, 22.35), and Drumann's objection thus falls to the ground.
