7. L. Cornelius
Scipio, also son of No. 5, was consul in B. C. 2.59, with C. Aquillius Florus.
He drove the Carthaginians out of Sardinia and Corsica, defeating Hanno, the Carthaginian commander, and obtained a triumph in consequence.
The epitaph on his tomb records that " he took Corsica and the city of Aleria."
In the Fasti he appears as censor in B. C. 258, with C. Duilius, and his epitaph calls him " Consul, Censor, Aedilis." (Liv. Ep.
