Le'pidus

14. MAM. AEMILIUS MAM. F. M. N. LEPIDUS LIVIANUS, who appears to have been a grandson of No. 8, but only an adopted son, as his surname Livianus shows, was consul,B. C. 77, with D. Junius Brutus. He belonged to the aristocratical party, and is mentioned as one of the influential persons who prevailed upon Sulla to spare the life of the young Julius Caesar. He failed in obtaining the consulship at his first attempt, because he was supposed, though very rich, to have declined the office of aedile in order to avoid the expences attending it. (Suet. Jul. 1; Cic. Brut. 47, de Off. 2.17 ; Obsequ. 119; V. Max. 7.7.6.)
