[2] John of Antioch fr.80.2 Roberto. One might have supposed this 'Marcius' to be the man better-known, subsequently, as Coriolanus (mu 210), but see rather Eutropius, Breviarium 1.12: this is (T.) Larcius, the first (501 BCE) dictator, and his magister equitum Spurius Cassius Vecellinus. See also Livy 2.18 (web address 1).
