Liber de Viris Illustribus

Sex. Aurelius Victor

Ob hoc ei tantum agri publice datum, quantum uno die ambire potuisset. Statua quoque ei in Vulcanali posita.

On account of this as much public land was given to him [sc. Horatius Cocles] as he could encircle with a plow in one day. And a statue was dedicated to him on the Volcanal.
