Aulus Postumius Albinus (consul 242 BC)
- For other persons with the cognomen "Albus" or "Albinus", see Albinus (cognomen).
He was elected consul in 242 BC with Gaius Lutatius Catulus, who defeated the Carthaginians in the Battle of the Aegates Islands, and thus, brought the First Punic War to an end. Albinus was kept in the city, against his will, by the Pontifex Maximus, because he was Flamen Martialis. He was censor in 234 BC, and was apparently the father of the Lucius Postumius Albinus who was consul in 234 and 229 BC.
