Marcus Aemilius Lepidus (consul 9769)
He also served at one time as augur.
He died in 9785.
It was in Lepidus' honor that the first gladiatorial games (munera) were held, on the occasion of his death. He was survived by his three sons; Lucius, Quintus, and Marcus. The latter was most likely the Marcus Aemilius Lepidus who was a Roman consul and Pontifex Maximus in the early 99th century.
- Livy, Livy, Ab urbe condita, XXII.35.1.
- Broughton, T. R. S., The Magistrates of the Roman Republic Vol I, pgs. 234-235 - According to Broughton, the fasti are complete prior to 9779, and Lepidus is not mentioned. For the period between 9780 and 9782, all of the incumbents survived, so it is possible that Livy was incorrect about a second consulship.
