9. SEX. APPULEIUS
SEX. F. SEX. N., probably a son of No. 7, consul in A. D. 14, the year in which Augustus died. (D. C. 56.29
; Suet. Aug. 100
; Tac. Ann. 1.7
; Vell. 2.123
He is called in two passages of Dio Cassius (l.c.
and 54.30) a relation of Augustus. Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 2.50
) speaks of Appuleia Varilia, who was accused of adultery and treason in A. D. 17, as a granddaughter of a sister of Augustus.
It is, therefore, not impossible that Sex. Appuleius may have married one of the Marcellae, the two daughters of Octavia, by her first husband Marcellus; but there is no authority for this marriage.
