3. M. Servilius
Palex Geminus, C. F. P. N., was elected augur in B. C. 211, in the place of Spurius Carvilins, who had died; and in B. C. 203 he was curule aedile, and, conjointly with his colleague, he dedicated a golden quadriga on the Capitol.
In the year same he was magister equitum to the dictator, P. Sulpicius Galba, with whom he travelled through Italy, to examine the causes which had led several towns to revolt against Rome. In B. C. 202 he was consul with Tib. Claudius Nero, and obtained Etruria for his province, which he occupied with his two legions, and in which his imperium was prolonged for the year following. In B. C. 200 he was one of the ten commissioners to distribute land in Samnium and Appulia among the veterans of Scipio. In B. C. 197 he was one of the triumvirs appointed for a period of three years, to establish a series of colonies on the western coast of Italy. In B. C. 167, during the disputes as to whether a triumph was to be granted to Aemilius Paullus, the conqueror of Macedonia, M. Servilius addressed the people in favour of Aemilius Paullus. (Liv. 26.23
, 45.36, &c.)
