Lucius Marcius Censorinus was a Roman Republican consul who served alongside Manius Manilius. He and Manilius led the Roman legions in an ill-fated two-pronged attack on Carthage, which was eventually repulsed by the army of the Carthaginian Generals Hasdrubal the Boeotarch and Himilco Phameas, during the first stages of the Third Punic War.[1]
