After the death of his brother Romus,[1] Romulus recruited a number of men from the neighboring cities, picked out the 100 most senior and intelligent of these, and appointed them to deliberate about and oversee public business; and he named the man senators and councillors by dint of their age.[2] From these he picked out the ten best and named them, metaphorically from fathers, 'patricians',[3] and set them up at the head of a people's government. He also listed 300 cavalrymen and 3000 infantryman as soldiers who would garrison the city; and he divided the mass of the people into 4 tribes.
Also [sc. attested is the related term] senate, [meaning] the council-house.[4]
