Ma'ximus, Fa'bius

13. Q. Fabius Maximus, Q. F. Q. N., was joined with Q. Caelius Rufus in B. C. 59, in the prosecution of C. Antonius Hybrida [ANTONIUS, No. 10] for extortion in his province of Macedonia. (Cic. in Vatin. 11; Schol. Bob. in Vatinian. p. 321, Orelli.) For his services as legatus to Caesar in Spain, B. C. 45 (Caes. B. H. 2, 41), he obtained a triumph and the consulship of that year on Caesar's deposition of it in September. Fabius died on the last day (December 31) of his official year. (D. C. 43.42, 46; Plin. H. N 7.53; Cic. Fam. 7.30; Liv. Epit. 116; comp. Macr. 2.3.)

To which of the Fabii Maximi the preceding coin belongs is quite uncertain.
