C. Cupie'nnius

2. The Cupiennius attacked by Horace (Sat. 1.2. 36) on account of his adulterous intercourse with Roman matrons, is said by the Scholiast on Horace to have been C. Cupiennius Libo of Cuma, a friend of Augustus.

There are some coins extant bearing the names of L. Cupiennius and C. Cupiennius; but who these persons were, is not known. (Eckhel, v. p. 199.)
