    • A son of Cato the Censor, M. Porcius M. f. M. n. Cato Licinianus (see 168, Legates) died about this time. According to Livy (Per. 48) and Plutarch (Cat. Mai. 24.6) he died in office as Praetor, but Cicero (Tusc. 3.70) and Gellius (13.20.9) agree that he was Praetor-elect. See D.- G. 5.160, no. 16. (Broughton MRR I)

Both Consuls proceeded to Africa, Marcius in command of the fleet and Manilius of the land forces. Surprised by the desperate resistance of the Carthaginians, they both met with reverses, Marcius in his attack on the city from side of the gulf of Tunis, and Manilius both in his siege of the city and his operations in Carthaginian territory, and both, according to the Polybian tradition, were saved from a more serious situation by Scipio Aemilianus (see Tribunes of the Soldiers). Marcius almost lost his fleet to Carthaginian fire ships, made coastal raids and captured Aegimurus, and in autumn returned to hold the elections (Polyb. 36.1-8; App. Lib. 74-104; cf. Cic. Rep. 6.9.1; Diod. 32.6-8; Liv. Per. 49-50, and Oxy. Per. 49; Vell. 1.13.1; Flor. 1.31.1-12; Dio fr. 70; Eutrop. 4.10; Auct. Vir. Ill. 58.2; Oros. 4.22.1-7; Zon. 9.26-27). (Broughton MRR I)
