    • Liv. 31.49.12; 32.2.6, 7.1 and 8, and 8.3; Fast. Cap., Degrassi 48f., 121, 452f.; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Cassiod. Cornelius' province was Italy, but he went to Gaul after Baebius' defeat (Liv. 32.1.2-3 and 7.6-8). Villius was assigned Macedonia (Liv. 32.1.2-3), where he checked a mutiny, and after wintering in Corcyra, was succeeded early in 198 by Flamininus (Liv. 32.6.1-8; cf. Plut. Flam. 3.1-2; Zon. 9.16). On Villius, see Lübker, no. 1. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Proconsul 198 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • His successor, the Consul Flamininus, arrived early in the year (Liv. 32.6.4, and 9.6-8; Plut. Flam. 3.1-4). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Lieutenant) 197 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Both assigned by the Senate to assist Flamininus as Legates (Liv. 32.28.12). On Villius, see Lübker, no. 1. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Ambassador) 196 Macedonia, Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Ten Legati were appointed to assist Flamininus in arranging the peace with Philip and the settlement in Greece (Polyb. 18.42.5; Liv. 33.24.7, cf. 30.1, and 35.1-2). The following are known, and since Livy nowhere lists them in an official order, they are given in alphabetical order. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Liv. 33.24.7. Sent to treat with Antiochus at Lysimacheia (Polyb. 18.48.3, and 50.3; Liv. 33.35.2, and 39.2; Plut. Flam. 12.1). See Lübker, no. 1. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Ambassador) 195 Africa (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Villius reported to Flaminius the return of Antiochus to Europe with larger forces than before (Liv. 34.33.12). Aelius and Sulpicius, also members of the commission of ten legates (see 196) may have been with him (cf. Liv. 34.59.8), and the others occupied elsewhere. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Only Villius is known to have gone to Antiochus in Lysimacheia in 196 (see 196) yet in 193 (Liv. 34.59.8) we find that Sulpicius and Aelius had been there before with him. Holleaux is inclined to reject the explanation that there was a special embassy in 195, when Antiochus did return to Europe (Liv. 34.33.12; see note 3), and to add Sulpicius and Aelius to that of 196; but it is at least possible that they went in 195. (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Ambassador) 193 Asia (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Sent to Antiochus the Great in Asia when his embassy to Rome failed to secure an agreement (Liv. 34.59.8; 35.13-17). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Ambassador) 192 Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Appointed to oppose Aetolian influence and rally the Greek communities against Antiochus (Liv. 35.23.5-8; note esp. Flamininus at Demetrias, 35.31, in Aetolia, 35.32-33, in Corinth, 35.34.1, and 39.1, and at the Achaean assembly, 35.48-50; and Villius' trip to Demetrias, 35.39; cf. Diod. 29.1; Plut.
