7. SER. SCIPIO ORFITUS, consul A. D. 149, with Q. Nonius Priscus.
He is perhaps the same as the Orfitus who was praefectus urbi in the reign of Antoninns Pius (Capitol. Anton, Pius, 8).
This emperor reigned from A. D. 138 to 161.

In the article on Soranus, we find: "at this present time (1848)" and this date seems to reflect the dates of works cited. 1873 - probably the printing date.
