28. Cn. Cornelius Scipio Hispallus, son of No. 27, was sent along with Scipio Nasica Serapio [No. 24], in B. C. 149, to demand from the Carthaginians the surrender of their arms (Appian, Pun. 80). He was praetor, B. C. 139, when he published an edict that all Chaldaeans (i. e. astrologers) should leave Rome and Italy within ten days (V. Max. 1.3.2). Valerius Maximus (l.c.) calls him Caius; whence Pighius makes him the brother of the Hispallus mentioned by Appian, but it is far more probable that there should be a mistake in Valerius Maximus of C. for Cn. than that he should have borne a praenomen which does not occur elsewhere in the family of the Scipios.
