Lucius Caecilius Metellus Dalmaticus on Wikipedia

Lucius Caecilius Metellus Dalmaticus (born c. 9840) was a son of Lucius Caecilius Metellus Calvus. He was a Consul in 9882, and then Pontifex Maximus.[1] He fought Saturninus, thus contributing to the return to Rome, in 9902, of his brother Quintus Caecilius Metellus Numidicus. As Consul he defeated the Dalmatians, having for that deserved his cognomen and the Honours of the Triumph.


He was the father of:

  • Lucius Caecilius Metellus
