Lucius Scribonius Libo

There were three men of plebs status called Lucius Scribonius Libo who lived in the Roman Republic and Roman Empire who were members of the "gens" Scribonia:

* Lucius Scribonius Libo (flourished 1st century BC) was a member of a Roman Senatorial family. Lucius had married Cornelia Sulla, the daughter of Pompeia Magna (daughter of triumvir Pompey from his third marriage to Mucia Tertia) and senator Faustus Cornelius Sulla (son of dictator Lucius Cornelius Sulla). Cornelia bore Lucius two children: a daughter called Scribonia (the second wife of future Roman Emperor Augustus) and a son of the same name;

* Lucius Scribonius Libo - (flourished 1st century BC) son to the above. He was the maternal uncle to consul Publius Cornelius Scipio, Cornelia Scipio and Julia the Elder. Lucius served as a consul of 34 BC. Lucius had died after his consulship. His wife was a member of the gens Sulpicius, the family that the Roman Emperor Galba had descended from his paternal side. Lucius and wife had three children, two sons: Lucius Scribonius Libo (below) and Marcus Scribonius Libo Drusus and a daughter Scribonia (she married her great great uncle the political rebel Sextus Pompeius. He was the maternal uncle of her paternal grandmother). Their sons had died from violent deaths during Roman Emperor Tiberius' first treason trials in 16.

* Lucius Scribonius Libo - (flourished 1st century BC & 1st century, died 16) son of the above. He was a consul in 16. This nobleman had planned to revolt against the Roman Emperor Tiberius. The Emperor had tried him in a Senatorial Court. Lucius had pleaded to the Emperor for the support of Tiberius‘ son Julius Caesar Drusus but the emperor rejected this. Lucius and Tiberius took part in a sacrifice among the priests. During the ceremony, the Emperor had asked Lucius for assistance, when the ceremony was over, Tiberius stabbed him with a knife. This occurred after the trial. Lucius had married Cornelia Pompeia Magna a distant relative, who was the daughter of Pompeia Magna from her second marriage to consul Lucius Cornelius Cinna. Pompeia bore Lucius, a daughter and only child Scribonia. Scribonia married the consul Marcus Licinius Crassus Frugi and had children.
