Manlius

(redirected from Manlii)

Manlius

(măn`lēəs), ancient Roman gens, chiefly patrician but later containing plebeian families. Marcus Manlius Capitolinus, d. 384? B.C., consul (392 B.C.), took refuge in the Capitol when Rome was taken (c.389) by the Gauls. Aroused by the cackling of the sacred geese at night, he repulsed the Gauls from the hill. According to legend, he defended plebeian debtors from harsh patrician creditors, and the following year he was impeached for high treason and thrown from the Tarpeian Rock by the tribunes. Titus Manlius Imperiosus Torquatus, fl. 4th cent. B.C., served against the Gauls (361 B.C.), one of whom he slew in single combat. He took the Gaul's torque, or collar, hence his name Torquatus. He was dictator twice more, and three times consul. In 340, with his colleague, Publius Decius Mus, he defeated the Latins near Vesuvius and at Trifanum. He killed his own son for disobeying express orders not to engage in single combat with the enemy. Some of his story is legendary. Titus Manlius Torquatus, fl. 3d cent. B.C., conquered the Sardinians while consul (235 B.C.), subsequently becoming censor (231), consul (224), and dictator (210). He opposed the ransoming of Roman prisoners taken at the battle of Cannae (216), and he defeated (215) a large Carthaginian force in Sardinia.

In fact the story was so well-known that it became pervasive in the family history of the Manlii Torquati, and the characteristic severity of that clan was applied to family members who lived after this Manlius, and retroactively applied to those who lived before (Feeney 211-3).
As one of the Manlii he was related to the famous general who had executed his son for leaving his post, and he must have evoked the old and austere caste of Roman virtues which included Manliana imperia.
