18. L. Cornelius Scipio Asiaticus, the son of the conqueror of Antiochus [No. 13]. The following is the inscription on his tomb: "L. Corneli L. F. P. N. Scipio quaist. tr. mil. annos gnatus XXXIII. mortuos. Pater regem Antioco(m) subegit" (Orelli, Inscr. No. 556). As he is here called quaestor, he is probably the same as the L. Cornelius Scipio, the quaestor, who was sent to meet Prusias and conduct him to Rome, when this monarch visited Italy in B. C. 167 (Liv. 45.44).
