Lucius Scipio av Cornelii, född -295 i Roma, Lazio, Italien, död -230 i Roma, Lazio, Italien. Consul of the Roman Republic in 259 BC. Buried - Tomb of the Scipios, Via di Porta San Sebastiano, Roma, Lazio, Italien.

Lucius Cornelius Scipio was consul in 259 BC during the First Punic War.He led the Roman fleet in the capture of Aleria and then Corsica, but failed against Olbia in Sardinia. The Fasti Triumphales record that he was awarded a triumph, but two other inscriptions on his career don't mention it. The following year he was elected censor with Gaius Duilius.

He later dedicated a temple to the Tempestates, locating it near the Porta Capena. Fragments of his sarcophagus were discovered in the Tomb of the Scipios and are now in the Vatican Museums. They preserve his epitaph, written in Old Latin: which has been transcribed and translation is:

Romans for the most part agree,that this one man, Lucius Scipio, was the best of good men.He was the son of Barbatus,Consul, Censor, Aedile.He took Corsica and the city of Aleria.He dedicated a temple to the Storms as a just return.

This inscription is number two of the elogia Scipionum, the several epitaphs surviving from the tomb.
