    • 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)

Numantia 80f.). Atilius held command in Italy and Gaul (see 135, Promagistrates). (Broughton MRR I)
