22. L. Aemilius
Paullus, the son of Paullus Aemilius Lepidus [No. 19] and Cornelia, married Julia, the grand-daughter of Augustus, being a daughter of M. Agrippa and Julia, who was the daughter of Augustus. Paullus is therefore called the progener
of Augustus. As Julia, the daughter of Augustus, was the half-sister of Cornelia [see above, No. 19], Paullus married his first cousin.
He was consul in A. D. 1 with C. Caesar, his wife's brother, and the grandson of Augustus; but, notwithstanding his close connection with the imperial family, he nevertheless entered into a conspiracy against Augustus, of the particulars of which we are not informed. (Propert. 4.11. 63; Suet. Oct.
19, 64; Dio Cass. lv. Ind.) Respecting Julia, the wife of Paullus, see JULIA, No. 7.
