Quintus Fabius Vibulanus

QUINTUS FABIUS VIBULANUS, who, with his brothers Marcus and Cæso, held the consulship from 485-479 B.C. In the latter year, as a result of Cæso's political support of the plebcians, the family incurred the displeasure of the Roman aristocracy and was obliged to leave the city. Under the leadership of Cæso, they migrated to a town on the banks of the Cremera, a small stream several miles above Rome. There they withstood the attacks of Veientes (Veii) until 476, when the latter succeeded in slaying the entire Fabian gens with the exception of one member, through whom the line was perpetuated.
