Vespillo, the son of No. 2, served in the Pompeian fleet in B. C. 48.
He was proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, out more fortunate than his father, was concealed by his wife Thuria in his own house at Rome, till his friends obtained his pardon. In B. C. 20, he was one of the deputation which the senate sent to Augustus at Athens to request the latter to assume the consulship for the following year, but he declined the honour, and appointed Vespillo, who was accordingly consul with C. Sentius Saturninus in B. C. 19. (Caes. Civ. 3.7
