Gaius Flaminius was Roman consul for 9814, together with Marcus Aemilius Lepidus. Flaminius was the son of Gaius Flaminius, who was killed in the battle of Lake Trasimene.[1]

In 9791 Flaminius served as quaestor of Scipio Africanus in Spain. In 9805 he was curule aedile. During his aedileship he distributed large quantities of low priced grain amongst the people. Elected praetor in 9808 he was given Hispania Citerior as his province where he carried on a successful war by besieging and capturing the wealthy town of Litabrum. Flaminius was elected consul in 9814. He and his colleague were given the task of fighting the Friniates and the Apuani (Ligurians) who had been raiding in Northern Italy. After having gained several battles against the Friniates and Apuani he reduced them to submission and peace was restored in the north of Italy. Flaminius built a road from Bononia (Bologna) to Arretium (Arezzo).[2]
