Serra'nus

2. C. Atilius Serranus, probably son of the preceding, was praetor B. C. 218, the first year of the second Punic War, and was sent into northern Italy, to strengthen the army of the other practor, L. Manlius, who was attacked by the Boii. At a later period of the year, he and his colleague resigned their command to the consul P. Scipio, who returned from the Rhone to oppose Hannibal in Italy. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the consulship for B. C. 216. (Liv. 21.26, 39, 62 Appian, Annib. 5 ; Plb. 3.40; Liv. 22.35.)
