2 Livy now enumerates briefly events in Rome during the period occupied by the Aetolian and Galatian campaigns. The narrative thus supplements that of XXXVII. lii —lviii incl.
3 Cf. XXXIV. xliv. 4 and the note. Scipio had received this distinction in 199 B.C. (when he had been one of the censors) and in 194 B.C.
4 The censors performed the function of revising the list of equites and removing from the list such individuals as the facts as they found them warranted.
5 Neither the meaning of the word nor the situation of the place is quite certain, although if it was near the vicus Iugarius the work may have been necessitated by the landslide of 192 B.C. (XXXV. xxi. 6).
6 This temple lay between a mile and two miles outside the Porta Capena on the Via Appia.
7 These were probably Campanians who had been driven from their homes during the Second Punic War and had settled in other parts of Italy. They were not, however, citizens of the towns in which they resided, and the censors could not take cognizance of them there.
8 Cf. ix. 10 above and the note.
9 B.C. 189
10 The text is hopelessly corrupt, and I have not indicated the lacuna in the translation. It is uncertain whether pro viribus goes with imperatos, with inopes, as I have translated it, or with something omitted. Moreover, the fourth city on the island (Thuc. II. xxx. 2; Plin. N.H. IV. 54) is not mentioned. Finally, the number of hostages is very large (cf. xi. 6 above), which ill accords with inopes, unless the interpretation here given of pro viribus nopes is accepted.
