Titus Lucretius Tricipitinus was a politician and military leader in the early days of the Roman Republic. Twice,in the years 508 and 504 BC,he was elected Roman Consul,alongside Publius Valerius Poplicola. Also a military leader,he was victorious against Lars Porsena during his first consulate. According to Livy,he led the Roman army together with Valerius against the Sabines in 504 BC and both consuls were awarded the honour of a triumph,however the Fasti Triumphales only mention the triumph of Valerius,in May 504 BC.
During the war between Rome and Clusium,Lucretius participated in a successful sally organised by Valerius,killing a Clusian raiding party.
The stories of Titus and his exploits may in part be mythical.
Lucius Junius Brutus is the semi-legendary founder of the Roman Republic,and traditionally one of its first consuls in 509 BC. He was reputedly responsible for the expulsion of his uncle the Roman king Tarquinius Superbus after the suicide of Lucretia,which led to the overthrow of the Roman monarchy. He was involved in the abdication of fellow consul Tarquinius Collatinus,and executed two of his sons for plotting the restoration of the Tarquins.
Marcus Valerius Corvus was an important military commander and politician from the early-to-middle period of the Roman Republic. In a distinguished career,he was elected Roman consul six times,his first at the unusual age of 23. He was also appointed Dictator two times,and led the armies of the Republic in the First Samnite War. He occupied the curule chair a total of twenty-one times throughout his career,and according to tradition he lived to be one hundred.
The gens Valeria was a patrician family at ancient Rome,prominent from the very beginning of the Republic to the latest period of the Empire. Publius Valerius Poplicola was one of the consuls in 509 BC,the year that saw the overthrow of the Tarquins,and the members of his family were among the most celebrated statesmen and generals at the beginning of the Republic. Over the next ten centuries,few gentes produced as many distinguished men,and at every period the name of Valerius was constantly to be found in the lists of annual magistrates,and held in the highest honour. Several of the emperors claimed descent from the Valerii,whose name they bore as part of their official nomenclature.
Publius Valerius Poplicola or Publicola was one of four Roman aristocrats who led the overthrow of the monarchy,and became a Roman consul,the colleague of Lucius Junius Brutus in 509 BC,traditionally considered the first year of the Roman Republic.
Titus Manlius Torquatus was a politician of the Roman Republic. He had a long and distinguished career,being consul in 235 BC and 224 BC,censor in 231 BC,and dictator in 208 BC. He was an ally of Fabius Maximus "Cunctator".
Aulus Postumius Albus Regillensis was an ancient Roman who,according to Livy,was Roman dictator in 498 or 496 BC,when he conquered the Latins in the great Battle of Lake Regillus and subsequently celebrated a triumph. Many of the coins of the Postumii Albi commemorate this victory of their ancestor,as in the one pictured. Roman folklore related that Castor and Pollux were seen fighting in this battle on the side of the Romans,whence the dictator afterwards promised a temple to Castor and Pollux in the Roman Forum.
Marcus Valerius Volusus was a Roman consul with Publius Postumius Tubertus in 505 BC.
The Roman–Etruscan Wars were a series of wars fought between ancient Rome and the Etruscans. Information about many of the wars is limited,particularly those in the early parts of Rome's history,and in large part is known from ancient texts alone. The conquest of Etruria was completed in 265–264 BC.
The gens Postumia was a noble patrician family at ancient Rome. Throughout the history of the Republic,the Postumii frequently occupied the chief magistracies of the Roman state,beginning with Publius Postumius Tubertus,consul in 505 BC,the fifth year of the Republic. Although like much of the old Roman aristocracy,the Postumii faded for a time into obscurity under the Empire,individuals bearing the name of Postumius again filled a number of important offices from the second century AD to the end of the Western Empire.
Aulus Postumius Tubertus was a Roman military leader in the wars with the Aequi and Volsci during the fifth century BC. He served as Magister Equitum under the dictator Mamercus Aemilius Mamercinus in 434 BC.
Spurius Larcius was one of the leading men of the early Roman Republic,of which he was twice consul. However,his greatest fame was won as one of the defenders of the Sublician bridge against the army of Lars Porsena,the King of Clusium.
The gens Lucretia was a prominent family of the Roman Republic. Originally patrician,the gens later included a number of plebeian families. The Lucretii were one of the most ancient gentes,and the second wife of Numa Pompilius,the second King of Rome,was named Lucretia. The first of the Lucretii to obtain the consulship was Spurius Lucretius Tricipitinus in 509 BC,the first year of the Republic.
Lucius Furius Medullinus,of the patrician gens Furia,was a politician and general of the Roman Republic who was consul twice and Consular Tribune seven times.
Aulus Verginius Tricostus Caeliomontanus was a Roman Republican politician and general of the gens Verginia. He served as a Roman consul in 494 BC together with Titus Veturius Geminus Cicurinus.
The Roman–Sabine wars were a series of wars during the early expansion of ancient Rome in central Italy against their northern neighbours,the Sabines. It is commonly accepted that the events pre-dating the Roman Republic in 509 BC are semi-legendary in nature.
Titus Veturius Geminus Cicurinus was a Roman politician of the 5th century BC,consul in 462 BC and maybe decemvir in 451 BC.
