Sempro'nia

1. The daughter of Tib. Gracchus, censor B. C. 169, and the sister of the two celebrated tribunes, married Scipio Africanus minor. We know nothing of her private life or character. On the sudden death of her husband, she and her mother Cornelia were suspected by some persons of having murdered him, since Scipio did not like her on account of her want of beauty and her sterility, and she likewise had no affection for him. But there is no evidence against her; and if Scipio was really murdered, Papirius Carbo was most probably the guilty party. [SCIPIO, No. 21, p. 750.] (Appian, App. BC 1.20; Liv. Epit. 59 ; Schol. Bob. pro Mil. p. 283.)
