Titus Quinctius Pennus Capitolinus Crispinus

Last updated

Titus Quinctius Pennus Capitolinus Crispinus was a politician of the Roman Republic. In 361 BC he was a dictator of Rome and obtained a triumph following a successful battle against the Gauls. [1] In 360 BC he was magister equitum , and he continued campaigning against the Gauls, who had allied themselves with the Tiburtes. [2] In 354 and 351 BC he was consul. [3] [4] During the latter of these consulships, he set out for war with the Falisci, but, upon meeting no resistance, burned and pillaged their land instead. [4]

After his consulships, he may have gone into retirement to a villa near Tusculum, and henceforth may have been the Titus Quinctius who was recorded to have been coerced in 342 BC by a group of mutinying Roman soldiers to lead their rebellion. [5] The identity of this Titus Quinctius however remains unclear, and may have instead been a similarly named contemporary.
