24. Sex. Julius
Caesar, son probably of No. 23, as he is called by Appian very young in B. C. 47, and is not therefore likely to have been the same as the preceding, as some have conjectured.
He was in the army of the great Caesar in Spain in B. C. 49, and was sent by the latter as ambassador to M. Terentius Varro.
At the conclusion of the Alexandrine war, B. C. 47, Sex. Caesar was placed over Syria, where he was killed in the following year by his own soldiers at the instigation of Caecilius Bassus, who had revolted against the dictator. (Caes. Civ. 2.20
