Worth mentioning are the Esquiline frescoes of the Samnite War -- so Joyce Reynolds calls them; they are mentioned in the exhibition catalogue of a 1973 exhibit to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Capitoline Museums. According to Reynold's survey article "Roman Inscriptions 1971-5" in the Journal of Roman Studies (volume 66, 1976, p. 177), after being cleaned these frescoes were re-examined, & not only were they determined to come "from the interior of a grand family tomb-to be compared, significantly, with that of the Scipio family", but more relevantly, "the name of the central figure on the Roman side is clearly Q. Fabius (Rullianus, consul five times, it is suggested, or perhaps his son)." -- llywrch (talk) 17:02, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
