Historical background


(62 BC) Lucius Æmilius Lepidus Paullus

Lucius Aemilius Lepidus Paullus was monetary triumvir in 63-62 BC, quaestor in 59, praetor in 53, and consul in 50 BC with Gaius Claudius Marcellus. It does not seem to have a political role after the death of Caesar in 44 BC but still was part of the embassy sent to Antoine by the Senate in 43 BC, before the disappearance of two Hirtius and Pansa at the Battle of Mutina consuls. Paulus and his son were among the proscribed 43. They managed to escape and fled to Brutus. After Philippi (42 BC), Paulus fled to Miletus and spent the last years of his life in Asia Minor well Octave has forgiven him.
