Longus, Sempro'nius

2. TI. SEMPRONIUS TI. F. C. N. LONGUS, son of the preceding, seems to have been elected decemvir sacris faciundis in place of his father in B. C. 210, and likewise augur in the same year, in place of T. Otacilius Crassus. Livy (27.6) speaks of the augur and decemvir as Ti. Sempronius Ti f. Lonyus; and though it is rather strange that he should have obtained the augurate before he had held any of the higher magistracies, yet we must suppose him to be the same as the subject of the following notice, since Livy gives his name with so much accuracy, and we know of no one else of the same name at this time. He was tribune of the plebs B. C. 210, curule aedile B. C. 197, and in the same year one of the triumviri for establishing colonies at Puteoli, Buxentum, and various other places in Italy; praetor B. C. 196, with Sardinia as his province, which was continued to him another year; and consul B. C. 194 with P. Cornelius Scipio Africanus. In his consulship he assisted as triumvir in founding the colonies which had been determined upon in B. C. 197, and he fought against the Boii with doubtful success. In the year after his consulship, B. C. 193, he served as legate to the consul L. Cornelius Merula, in his campaign against the Boii, and in B. C. 191 he served as legate to the consul M'. Acilius Glabrio, in his campaign against Antiochus in Greece. In B. C. 184 he was an unsuccessful candidate for the censorship. (Liv. 31.20, 32.27, 29, 33.24, 26, 43, 34.42, 45, 46, 47, 35.5, 36.22, 39.40.) He died B. C. 174. (Liv. 41.21.)
