1. A daughter of C. Julius Caesar [CAESAR, No. 14] and Marcia, and aunt of Caesar the dictator. She married C. Marius the elder, by whom she had one son, C. Marius, slain at Praeneste in B. C. 82. Julia died B. C. 68, and her nephew, C. Julius Caesar, pronounced her funeral oration, in which he traced her descent through the Marcii to Ancus, the fourth king of Rome, and through the Julii to Anchises and Venus. At the funeral of Julia were exhibited, for the first time since Sulla's dictatorship in B. C. 81, the statues and inscriptive titles of the elder Marius. (Plut. Mar. 6, Caes. 1, 5; Suet. Jul. 6.)
