3. P. Cornelius Cethegus, L. F. P. N., curule aedile in B. C. 187, praetor in 185, and consul in 181. The grave of Numa was discovered in his consulship. He triumphed with his colleague Baebius Tamphilus over the Ligurians, though no battle had been fought,--an honour that had not been granted to any one before. In 173 he was one of the ten commissioners for dividing the Ligurian and Gallic lands. (Liv. 39.7, 23, 40.18; V. Max. 1.1.12; Plin. Nat. 13.13. s. 27 ; Plut. Num. 22; Liv. 40.38, 42.4.)
