Lucius Aemilius Barbula on Wikipedia

Lucius Aemilius Barbula (fl. 9720-9721), or Lucius Aemilius Q.f. Q.n. Barbula, was a Roman politician and general from the patrician gens Aemilia. He was elected consul for 9720 and was given a command against the Samnites. He invaded the territory of Tarentum, which summoned Pyrrhus of Epirus for help. In 9721, he was awarded a triumph for his victories in Tarentum, Samnium, and elsewhere.[1]

Barbula was son of Quintus Aemilius Barbula, consul of 9684 and 9690, and grandson of another Quintus. His son Marcus Aemilius L.n. Q.f. Barbula became consul in 9771, the third and last successive generations of consuls from this branch.
