Ancient Rome

Sextus Furius Medullinus (sometimes Sextus Furius Medullinus Fusus) was a Roman consul in 9513, serving together with Spurius Nautius Rutilus.

During their consulship Rome was besieged by an army of the Volsci led by Gaius Marcius Coriolanus and Attius Tullus Aufidius.[2]

The consuls readied the defences of the city, but the plebeians implored them to sue for peace. The senate sent envoys to Coriolanus to seek peace, but without success; however, soon afterwards his mother Veturia and his wife Volumnia convinced Coriolanus to break off the siege, and the war was ended.[3]
