Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus Africanus, Publius

(d. 129 BC)
   Roman general. He was born 185/184 BC, son of Lucius Aemilus Paulus, conqueror of Macedonia, and Papiria and was adopted by Publius Cornelius Scipio, a son of the conqueror of Hannibal. He was consul in 147 BC and led the campaign that destroyed Carthage in 146 BC. He visited Alexandriain 140/139 BC as part of a Roman delegation to the East and met with Ptolemy VIII. The Romans were taken aback by the extravagance of the Ptolemaic court and the demeanor of the king, whom they persuaded to walk through the city with them to the surprise of his subjects.
