Res Rusticae

M. Terentius Varro

Eiusdem gentis C. Licinius, tr. pl. cum esset, post reges exactos annis CCCLXV primus populum ad leges accipiendas in septem iugera forensia e comitio eduxit.

Licinius, of the same family, when he was tribune of the plebs, 365 years after the kings had been driven out, first led the people out of the comitium to receive laws in the "farm" of the Forum.
