L. Scribonius Libo (praetor 204 BC)

Lucius Scribonius Libo was a tribune of the plebs in 216 BC, during the Second Punic War. A question arose pertaining to the ransoming of Roman captives; he referred the matter to the Senate.[1] He was one of the three men appointed triumviri mensarii, a commission created by a Lex Minucia, possibly to deal with a shortage of silver;[2] the full range of their financial activities is unclear.[3] He was praetor peregrinus in 204 and sent to Cisalpine Gaul.[4]
