  • Praetor 152 Hispania Ulterior (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Atilius' cognomen is unknown, though Wilsdorf's conjecture Serranus (Leipzig. Stud. 1 [1878] 96) is probable in this period. He would then be a son of no. 68 and a brother of no. 69. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Captured Oxthrace from the Lusitani, and received the submission of several tribes including the Vettones, who soon revolted again (App. Ib. 58).{454} (Broughton MRR I)
    • Praetor ca. 153 and remained in Hispania Ulterior through 152. p. 740, footnote 130. See also pp173-4. (Brennan 2000)
  • Legatus (Lieutenant)? 147 Africa (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The gentile name of a Serranus was probably Atilius, and a Serranus serving with Scipio is likely to be the Sex. Atilius Serranus who became the colleague in the consulship of L. Furius Philus. His command of the fleet may indicate that he was a Praetor rather than a Legate; if so, Mancinus may have been a Praetor also in the previous year. However, if Serranus was a Praetor, he must be distinguished from the Atilius who held command in Farther Spain in 152. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Held command of the Fleet, succeeding Mancinus, and serving under Scipio (App. Lib. 114). (Broughton MRR I)
