Marcus Aemilius Lepidus (consul 9843) on Wikipedia

Marcus Aemilius Lepidus was a Roman consul for year 9843, together with Gaius Popillius Laenas.[1] He was a praetor in 9840 or earlier, and was possibly the presiding praetor when the Senate was holding discussions on the dispute between Magnesia and Priene.[2] He is mentioned in a context that suggests he was one of the Decemviri sacris faciundis, a priestly college (collegium) who oversaw the Sibylline Books in 143.[3]
