Not sure if this is really notable, or someone's attempt to highlight a specific family. A google search only returns a few hits. If it is notable, maybe a merger of the entries from the listing of the separate families? -- Allyunion 22:32, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep. I don't know what you were searching for, but many of these people are famous Romans, notably Mark Antony. This page is linked to by many others dealing with ancient Rome. I assume such a family tree would be useful to scholars of the era. --Shibboleth 22:45, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Notable family. See Scipio for a list of members of this family: there are at least 10 Scipio's with their own article. Eugene van der Pijll 22:57, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Abstain. Notable family, certainly. But shouldn't the image page be used for this? Gwalla | Talk 23:17, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)
    • No. The image pages are not a part of the encyclopedia, so the image should be included on some page in the main encyclopedia. And there is no other page where it would fit well, as it describes three families (each of which have their own article) in one tree. Eugene van der Pijll 23:27, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)
      • Keep then. Gwalla | Talk 01:28, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Highly notable. James F. (talk) 23:42, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Pjacobi 23:43, 26 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Very helpful in undertsanding Roman Republic. -- orthogonal 00:56, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. But someone should write some text summarizing the most important people in this chart--with Wikipedia links to larger articles, such as Scipio, as Eugene van der Pijll suggests above. I suggest moving this page to Wikipedia:Pages needing attention--with a summary of what should be done to make a good encyclopedia article. The graphic could be smaller on the encyclopedia page with a thumbnail so that someone interested could look at the full-scope of the chart by clicking on the thumbnail. ---Rednblu 01:15, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep: I agree with the cleanups suggested above. This is one of the two most important families in Roman history and, with a slight difference or two in battle outcome, might have been the most important. Geogre 02:55, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I agree that there should be links on the page to the more notable members of this family -- and frankly, there isn't a single member who isn't worth at least a paragraph. Smerdis of Tlön 13:41, 27 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Very useful in understanding the relationship of family to the chain of Roman history. I found this page while researching the Cornelii and the various Scipios.
  • Keep. We need imagemaps for family trees like this. Gdr 15:12, 2004 Aug 27 (UTC)
