    • On the Praetors of 175, see especially Münzer, APF 218f. (Broughton MRR I)
    • A Cornelius received a prorogued command in Sardinia in 174 (Liv. 41.21.2), and so was probably Praetor in that province in 175. Ser. Cornelius Sulla is listed immediately after the consulars in the Macedonian commission of 167 (Liv. 45.17.3; cf. Willems 1.347f., note 6; 2.507), and was therefore an ex-Praetor at the time. He was possibly Praetor in 170 but more probably in 175. (Broughton MRR I)
