Aure'lia Orestilla

a beautiful but profligate woman, whom Catiline married. As Aurelia at first objected to marry him, because he had a grown-up son by a former marriage, Catiline is said to have killed his own offspring in order to remove this impediment to their union. (Sal. Cat. 15, 35 ; Appian, App. BC 2.2; comp. Cic. Fam. 9.22.) Her daughter was betrothed to the younger Corniticius in B. C. 49. (Caelius, apud Cic. ad Fam. 8.7.)
