  • Consul 257 (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • The notice in Chr. 354 identifies Cornelius with the Consul of 270, whose filiation was P. f. Cn. n., and almost certainly with the Censor of 265. On the cognomen Erranus (i. e. Serranus), which appears late in the Atilian family, see Degrassi 116. It remains uncertain which Atilius was the legendary sower (Serranus) who was called, like Cincinnatus, from his labors, but to a consulship, and celebrated a triumph (Cic. Rosc. Amer. 50; Sest. 72; Val. Max. 4.4.5; Plin. NH 18.20; Serv. ad Aen. 6.844; Symmach. Ep. 1.48; Schol. Gron. 308 Stangl). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Polyb. 1.25.1; Fast. Cap. (A. 's name entire; Cn. [- - - -]); Chr. 354 (Regulo et Blesio II); Fast. Hyd. (Regulo et Blaeso); Chr. Pasc. ({Gr}); Cassiod., with Erranus instead of Regulus; Degrassi 42f., 116, 434f. Atilius celebrated a naval triumph for a victory over the Carthaginians off Tyndaris (Polyb. 1.25.1-6; Act. Tr., Degrassi 76f., 548; cf. Val. Max. 4.4.5; Oros. 4.8.5; Fest. 156 L; Zon. 8.12). Cornelius served in Sicily (Zon. 8.12). (Broughton MRR I)

    • Fast. Cap. (names entire), and on Longus, cf. 256; Polyb. 1.39.15; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc.; Oros. 4.10.2, with the cognomen Vulsco; Cassiod.; Zon. 8.15; see Degrassi 42f., 116, 436f. Both Consuls served in Sicily with fleet and army, but failed with considerable losses in their attempt to capture Lilybaeum (Polyb. 1.41.1-6, and 42.7-48.11; Diod. 24.1.1-4; Oros. 4.10.2; Zon. 8.15).
