The Scipio brothers;
The official commander at the battle of Magnesis, where Antiochus the Great was defeated, was the Consul Lucius Cornelius Scipio.
His more famous brother Publius, who defeated Hannibal, was present as one of his aides.
Publius could not be elected Consul that year, because of a rule imposing an interval between consulships.
However, the CAH believes that Lucius was known to be incompetent, and that Publius had been sent with him to act as the real commander on the field.
