7. Daughter of the preceding, and wife of L. Aemilius Paullus, by whom she had M. Aemilius Lepidus (D. C. 59.11; Suet. Calig. 24) and Aemilia, first wife of the emperor Claudius. (Suet. Cl. 26.) Less celebrated than her mother, Julia inherited her vices and misfortunes. For adulterous intercourse with D. Silanus (Tac. Ann. 3.24), she was banished by her grandfather Augustus to the little island Tremerus, on the coast of Apulia, A. D. 9, where she survived twenty years, dependent on the ostentatious bounty of the empress Livia. A child, born after her disgrace, was, by order of Augustus, exposed as spurious. Julia died in A. D. 28, and was buried in her place of exile, since, like her mother's, her ashes were interdicted the mausoleum of Augustus. (Tac. Ann. 4.71; Suet. Aug. 64, 65, 101; Schol. in Juv. Satt. 6.158.) It was probably this Julia whom Ovid celebrated as Corinna in his elegies and other erotic poems.
