M. Octavio L. Sulla (II) cos. ‡ MMDCCLV a.u.c.
- Nova Roma incorporated in Maine, USA.
- Consul M. Octavius proposed the title "Pater Patriae" for each of the two founders, who had also just finished their second consulships, and this was overwhelmingly approved by the Senate.
P. Vedia Serena and Pater Patriae Flavius Vedius Germanicus both resigned citizenship on Id. Mar. ‡ when the senate fails to vote to include P. Vedia in their number.
A conflict arose between the two Consuls, on the issue of the Censores power. Consul L. Cornelius had privately shown M. Octavius a proposed lex that would substantially modify the Censores' power to create Senators, in some cases, making adlection automatic, even against the wishes of the Senators. M. Octavius opposed this - thinking it was retaliation for the Censores' actions in the events three months prior - and privately insisted that the proposal be modified, or it would be vetoed. When Consul Cornelius finally posted a call for votes, however, the text included several of the features that the two had agreed would be removed, and Octavius vetoed it within hours. This ended a truce that had existed between the two Consuls, and for much of the remainder of their term, they quarrelled publicly and privately.
