2. Cn. Lutatius Cerco, one of the five ambassadors sent to Alexandria, B. C. 173. (Liv. 42.6.)

The annexed coin of the Lutatia gens contains on the obverse the name CERCO with the head of Pallas, and on the reverse Q. LUTATI, with a ship enclosed within a wreath made of oak-leaves. The reverse probably refers to the victory of C. Lutatius Catulus, which would of course be regarded by the Cercones as well as the Catuli as conferring honour upon their gens. (Eckhel, v. p. 240.)
