Headword: *bouolou=skoi
Adler number: beta,451
Translated headword: Volsci
Vetting Status: high
The Volsci made war against the Romans, and suffered many casualties and lost the most famous cities of their nation, when Marcius [Coriolanus], a young man illustrious among the Romans, charged into the midst of his enemies, but then rushed inside the gates with the fugitives and opened the entrance to his countrymen. For these deeds he was honored by the monarch with many goods and many prisoners of war, but he rejected [these] other things and was content with a garland for valour and a warhorse; and he asked for one of the prisoners of war who was his friend and set him free.

cf. kappa 2092, mu 210 (end), mu 211. The transliteration 'Bouolouskoi' is unique to the Suda, which seems to have conflated the two attested spellings *ou)olou=skoi (Plutarch, Dionysius of Halicarnassus) and *bolou=skoi (Appian).
On this alleged episode (of 493 BCE) see OCD(4) p.897, s.v. Marcius Coriolanus. The source of the Suda's account of it is unidentifiable.
On the Volsci (again at omicron 923) in general -- usually considered to have been migrants into southern Latium from the central Appenines -- see OCD(4) s.v. (p.1563).
