Sci'pio Africanus or Scipio Africanus the Younger or the Younger Scipio Africanus or the Younger Scipio

15. L. or CN. CORNELIUS SCIPIO AFRICANUS, the younger son of the great Africanus [No. 12]. He accompanied his father into Asia in B. C. 190, and was taken prisoner by Antiochus, as has already been related in the life of his father. Appian, in relating this circumstance (Syr. 29), confounds him with the celebrated Africanus minor. This Scipio was a degenerate son of so illustrious a sire, and only obtained the praetorship, in B. C. 174, through Cicereius, who had been a scriba of his father, giving way to him. In the same year he was expelled from the senate by the censors. (Liv. 41.27; V. Max. 3.5.1, 4.5.3.)
