    • In 217 duumviri were appointed to let the contract for building the temple of Concordia which L. Manlius "Praetor in Gallia" had vowed "two years before" (biennio ante: Liv. 22.33.7-8). Therefore Crake in an unpublished Johns Hopkins dissertation (p. 272) has suggested that Manlius was Praetor in 219 and pro praetore in 218. All other passages of Polybius and Livy clearly call him Praetor ({Gr}) in 218. Perhaps different Manlii held successive praetorships in 219 and 218; or else biennio is used loosely at the end of one year to refer to an occurrence at the beginning of the previous one; cf. triennio in Liv. 30.23.3. In any case this Manlius was probably Praetor Peregrinus in 218. Other examples when the Praetor Peregrinus left the city for a military command occur in 215, 213, 210, 209, 208, 206, and 204.

    • He was sent to Cisalpine Gaul, besieged by the Boii, and rescued by Atilius (Polyb. 3.40.11-14, and 56.6; Liv. 21.17.7, and 25.8-26.2, and 39.3; cf. App. Hann. 5). (Broughton MRR I)
