5. A vestal virgin, who was put to death B. C. 114 for having committed incest upon several occasions.
She induced two of the other vestal virgins, Marcia and Licinia, to commit the same crime, but these two were acquitted by the pontifices, when Aemilia was condemned, but were subsequently condemned by the praetor L. Cassius. (Plut. Quaest. Rom.
