    This is an extended version of a section of my PhD thesis, Four studies in the historiography of early Rome (University of Manchester 1998) 85–93. All dates are BC unless otherwise indicated, and all references to Dionysius of Halicarnassus are to the Antiquitates romanae. I should like to thank Dr E. H. Bispham for commenting on an earlier draft. I should also like to thank the Master and Fellows of Pembroke College, Oxford, for the Studentship during which this piece was completed.
