Caesar

17. Sex. Julius Caesar, C. F., son of No. 14, and the uncle of the dictator, was consul in B. C. 91, just before the breaking out of the Social war. (Plin. Nat. 2.83. s. 85, 33.3. s. 17; Eutrop. 5.3 ; Flor. 3.18; Oros. 5.18; Obsequ. 114.) The name of his grandfather is wanting in the Capitoline Fasti, through a break in the stone; otherwise we might have been able to trace further back the ancestors of the dictator. This Sex. Caesar must not be confounded, as he is by Appian (App. BC 1.40), with L. Julius Caesar, who was consul in B. C. 90, in the first year of the Social war. [See No. 9.]

The following coin, which represents on the obverse the head of Pallas winged, and on the reverse a woman driving a two-horse chariot, probably belongs to this Caesar.
