"He received the Magna Mater in 204 BC" -- What does that mean? Neither this article nor the stub at Magna Mater has an explanation, other than that Rome had adopted her cult the year before. Binabik80 03:14, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I believe it was a piece of rock considered to be the navel stone of Magna Mater that was send by her priests in the east to Rome, where it was received by Nasica. -- fdewaele, 5 January 2007, 14:20.

Is the claim that he replied to Cato's carthaginem esse delendam every time with "And I think that Carthage should be left standing!" correct? Dysmorodrepanis 13:17, 5 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It might be misidentification - see Publius Cornelius Scipio Nasica Corculum (his son)! Dysmorodrepanis 20:17, 12 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
