Gaius Fufius Geminus (suffect consul 2 BC)
Fufius Geminus was either the son or nephew of the Fufius Geminus who was governor of Pannonia in 35 BC. He was appointed consul suffectus in 2 BC (around September), replacing the Princeps Augustus. He was the co-author of the Lex Fufia Caninia, which restricted the manumission of slaves.
Fufius Geminus only served as consul for a couple of months – by 1 December, he had been replaced. It has been speculated that he may have died while in office, or perhaps he was caught up in the political events that surrounded the banishment of Augustus’ daughter Julia, resulting in his name being erased from the Fasti Magistrorum Vici.
