GAIUS MARCUS CORIOLANUS
Gaius Marcus Coriolanus was a military leader who was born in 6th c. BCE and died in 5th c. BCE. He lead siege to Corioli.
CLAIM TO INFAMY
In 491 BCE, there was a famine in Rome and Coriolinus suggested that the common people wouldn’t get grain unless they agreed to get rid of the office of tribune. Obviously, tribunes didn’t like this and exiled him. So, Coriolanus led the Volscian army against Rome for this. His mom (in the picture) pled with him to stop his forces from attacking.
