From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cloelius Tullus was a Roman envoy to Fidenae. He and his fellow envoys Gaius Fulcinius, Spurius Antius, and Lucius Roscius were dispatched in the year 438 BC, tasked with investigating the reasons for Fidenae's alliance with Veii. All four were murdered on the orders of the Veientine ruler Lars Tolumnius. Statues of the slain ambassadors were then erected at the public expense outside the Rostra in Rome, and in 437 BC Rome declared war against Veii as a response to the incident.
