In the consulship of Appius Claudius and Marcus b.c. 185 Sempronius, the Ligurians were routed and six towns were taken over from them by storm.
In the consulship of Publius Claudius Pulcher and b.c. 184 Lucius Porcius Licinus, about two thousand persons were convicted by Quintus Naevius of poisoning. Lucius Quinctius Flamininus was removed from the senate by Marcus Cato, because he had, while consul in Gaul, killed with his own hand a prominent Boian, when Flamininus’ minion, the Carthaginian Philip, regretted missing a gladiatorial show. The Porcian basilica was built.
In the consulship of Marcus Claudius Marcellus and b.c. 183 Quintus Fabius Labeo, a banquet was given at the funeral celebration of Publius Licinius Crassus, the chief pontiff. Booths for this were placed in the forum, thus fulfilling the prophecy of a soothsayer that there would be booths in the forum. There was a successful campaign in Spain. The surrender of Hannibal was demanded at the court of Prusias by Roman envoys, and Hannibal died by poison.
In the consulship of Lucius Aemilius and Gnaeus b.c. 182 Baebius, campaigns against the Ligurians and Spaniards were again undertaken. Wars and disputes were settled in Greece and Asia. The Thessalian Theoxena, fleeing with her husband and children, cast herself into the sea. Demetrius was accused by his brother on false charges and was compelled by his father to drink poison.
