Titus Manlius Torquatus

Titus Manlius Torquatus was consul 235 BC and 224, censor 231, dictator 208.

In his first consulship he subjugated Sardinia, recently acquired from the Carthaginians, when the temple of Janus was shut for the second time in Roman history (Livy ~. 9). In 216 he opposed the ransoming of the Romans taken prisoners at Cannae; and in 215 he was sent to Sardinia and defeated a Carthaginian attempt to regain possession of the island.
