honoribus ante legitimum tempus initis praetor commissione ludorum Floralium novum spectaculi genus elephantos funambulos edidit.

He began to hold public office before the legal age; when he was praetor he put on the games of the Floralia, producing a new kind of spectacle – tightrope-walking elephants.
