Headword: *prai/twr
Adler number: pi,2239
Translated headword: praetor
Vetting Status: high
"After the tribunes the Romans again returned to the consuls,[1] and first to be designated as general was Frurius[2] Camillus, son of that Camillus who had often held sole power [i.e. been dictator]; in their own language the Romans called him praetor, that is general."

The headword is a transliteration of Latin praetor. On praetors, see also pi 2238, pi 2240. On Furius (sic) Camillus, see phi 627.
[1] Adler's note on this part of the entry is 'cf. Eutropius fr. 25, fort. Io. Antioch.', i.e. a suggested attribution to John of Antioch. Now accepted as John fr.92 Roberto. Eutropius mentions the change from consuls to military tribunes with consular power and the subsequent reversion to consuls (Breviarium 2.1-3).
[2] Thus as transmitted, wrongly, for Furius. (Adler notes, but does not follow, Portus' emendation to that effect.)
