2 This narrative is somewhat inconsistent with that previously given, and probably came from another source. In x. 10 the election of Quinctius and Domitius was reported; the assignment of provinces was postponed to xx. 2-7, to make room for the account of developments in the east. Their achievements in the provinces were summarily recorded in xxii. 3-4, with only slight variations from the later version, and at xxiv. 3 Quinctius returned to hold the elections at which Scipio and Glabrio were chosen consuls for 191 B.C. In this passage, however, Livy seems to keep both consuls in Rome until after the elections, forgetting that Domitius was already in Gaul, according to the earlier account. He seems too to forget that the proconsul Minucius had been assigned to the Ligures (xx. 6). A further difference will be seen in the following sections: the source of chap. xxii went on to record events in Spain, and a possible duplication was pointed out in the note to xxii. 8; the source which Livy followed in chap. xl. continued with happenings at Rome.
3 B.C. 192
