Table of Contents:
1 Omission of cognomina at the beginning of a new book would be striking if their full names had not just been given in XXIX. xxxviii. 3; cf. below, § 8 (cognomina only).
2 B.C. 203
3 This addition to Etruria as one consul's province (and for the first time) was in view of Mago's activity on the Ligurian coast; cf. § 10; XXIX. v.
4 The first Crassus to be called Dives; Dio Cass. frag. 57. 52. Before his consulship in 205 B.C. he had been censor in 210; XXVII. vi. 17.
5 B.C. 203
6 No important victory of Crassus is known. Elected pontifex maximus in 212 B.C. (XXV. v. 3 f.), he held that office for 29 years down to his death in 183 B.C. His funeral was marked by many gladiatorial combats, games and a public feast in the Forum; XXXIX. xlvi. 2 ff. Livy's portrait reads like a laudatio funebris, and it would seem more in place in Book XXXIX than here. Cf. Cicero de Orat. III. 134.
7 Elected at XXIX. xxxviii. 4; consul in 201 B.C.; below, xl. 5; censor with Scipio Africanus in 199 B.C.; XXXII. vii. 2.
8 Cf. XXVIII. xlvi. 8 and note.
