    • IIvir is the title in Livy, praefecti in Orosius; Appian omits it and Dio uses the word {Gr}. Weuilleumier (Tarente, 102) favors Cornelius, and believes that Valerius has been confused with P. Valerius Laevinus the conqueror of Heracleia in 280. Cf. Münzer, Gent. Val. 38, no. 13. (Broughton MRR I)
    • The commander of the fleet attacked by the Tarentines (App. Samn. 7, 1, on Cornelius; Dio fr. 39.4, and Zon. 8.2, on L. Valerius; cf. Liv. Per. 12; Oros. 4.1.1). (Broughton MRR I)
