    • Liv. 29.38.3; 30.1.1-2 and 8, and 2.13; Fast. Cap., Degrassi 46f., 120f., 450f.; Chr. 354; Fast. Hyd.; Chr. Pasc., with Caepio corrupted{311} to Scipio; Cassiod.; Zon. 9.12 (Scipio for Caepio); and on C. Servilius, Liv. 30.23.2. Caepio received the province of Bruttium, where he skirmished with Hannibal and received the surrender of several towns before preparing to cross to Africa (Liv. 30.1.8, 3.1, 19.10-12, and 24.1-3). Geminus received that of Etruria and advanced into Gaul, where he released his father and Lutatius Catulus from the Gauls (Liv. 30.1.8, 3.1, and 19.6-8; see 218, Special Commissions).

  • Legatus (Ambassador) 195 Africa (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Since Nissen (Untersuchungen 151-3) many have followed App. and Nep. (above) in dating this embassy in 196 (cf. De Sanctis 4.115, note 3), but Holleaux (Hermes 43 [1908] 296-299; REA 15 [1913] 1ff.) has shown that the events mentioned occurred in one season, that Marcellus was probably the Consul of 196, and that Antiochus was probably at Lysimacheia and Ephesus a second time in 195 (cf. Liv. 34.33.12). Note too that Scipio Africanus delayed the sending of the embassy. On Marcellus, note that these embassies usually consisted of two senior senators and one junior one, a circumstance which favors the Consul of 196. (Broughton MRR I)
    • Sent to Carthage to accuse Hannibal before the Carthaginian Senate (Liv. 33.47.3-9, and 49.1-4; cf. Nep. Hann. 7; Iustin. 31.2.1; App. Syr. 4). (Broughton MRR I)
  • Legatus (Ambassador) 192 Achaea (Broughton MRR I) Expand
    • Appointed to oppose Aetolian influence and rally the Greek communities against Antiochus (Liv. 35.23.5-8; note esp. Flamininus at Demetrias, 35.31, in Aetolia, 35.32-33, in Corinth, 35.34.1, and 39.1, and at the Achaean assembly, 35.48-50; and Villius' trip to Demetrias, 35.39; cf. Diod. 29.1; Plut. Flam. 15-17; Zon. 9.19). See also 191, Legates; and on Villius, Lübker, no. 1. (Broughton MRR I)
