L. Cornelius Scipio Asiaticus - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 106 BC to 106 BC
Lucius Cornelius Scipio Asiaticus was one of the moneyers for the year 106 BC. He was later consul in 83 BC.

He was a great-grandson of Lucius Cornelius Scipio Asiaticus, consul in 190 BC, who was victor of the Battle of Magnesia (189 BC).

This Scipio is first mentioned in 100 BC, when he took up arms with the other members of the senate against Lucius Appuleius Saturninus. He belonged to the party of Gaius Marius in Sulla's first civil war and Sulla's second civil war.

Cicero speaks favorably of the oratorical powers of this Scipio.
