Plutarch, Fabius, 24.1

nanAmong the other marks of high favour which the Romans conferred upon Fabius, they made his son Fabius consul. 213 B.C. When this son had entered upon his office and was arranging some matter pertaining to the war, his father, either by reason of his age and weakness, or because he was putting his son to the test, mounted his horse and rode towards him through the throng of bystanders. The young man caught sight of his father at a distance and would not suffer what he did, but sent a lictor with orders for him to dismount and come to the consul on foot if he had any need of his offices.
