Gaius Maenius

Resource Toolbox

Roman statesman and general. Having completed (when consul in 338 B.C.) the subjugation of Latium, which with Campania had revolted against Rome, he was honoured by a triumph, and a column was erected to him in the Forum. When censor in 318, in order that the spectators might have more room for seeing the games that were celebrated in the Forum, he provided the buildings in the neighbourhood with balconies, which were called after him maeniana. See Festus, s.v. Maeniana; Livy viii. 13, ix. 34; Pliny, Nat. Hist. XXXiV. II (5).
