6. P. Cornelius
Maluginensis, P. F. M. N., consular tribune in B. C. 397 (Liv. 5.16
; Diod. 14.85
), and magister equitum to the dictator M. Furius Camillus in B. C. 396.
At least the Fasti Capitolini name Maluginensis
as the magister equitum in this year; but Livy (5.19
) and Plutarch (Camill.
5) call the magister equitum P. Cornelius Scipio.
He was consular tribune a second time in B. C. 390, the year in which Rome was taken by the Gauls. (Liv. 5.36
; Diod. 14.110
.) In Diodorus and in the common editions of Livy his praenomen is Servius, but in some of the best MSS. of Livy he is called Publius.
