1. A. Cornelius
Mammula, was praetor, B. C. 217, at the commencement of the second Punic war, in which year lie vowed a ver sacrum
(Dict. of Ant. s. v.
), but this vow was not fulfilled till B. C. 195 (Liv. 33.44
, compared with 22.9, sub fin.). In B. C. 216 Mammula was propraetor in Sardinia, and applied in vain to the senate for corn and pay for his troops. (Liv. 23.21
; V. Max. 7.6.1
