1. Q NAEVIUS, or NAVIUS, as the name is written in the MSS. of Livy, was a centurion in the army of Q. Fulvius Flaccus, who was engaged in the siege of Capua in B. C. 211, when Hannibal attempted to relieve the town. Naevius greatly distinguished himself by his personal bravery on this occasion, and by his advice the velites were united with the equites and did good service in repulsing the Campaninn cavalry. (Liv. 26.4, 5; Frontin. Strategy. 4.7.29; V. Max. 2.3.3.)
