Lucius Albinius is the name of at least two people of ancient Rome:[1]

  • Lucius Albinus, one of the tribunes of the plebs, at the first institution of the office in 493 BC.[2] Asconius Pedianus calls him Lucius Albinius Paterculus.[3]
  • Lucius Albinius, a plebeian who was conveying his wife and children in a cart out of the city after the defeat on the Allia in 390 BC, and overtook on the Janiculus the priests and vestals carrying the sacred things. He made his family get out of the wagon and took as many sacred objects as he was able to Caere.[4][5] The consular tribune in 379 BC whom Livy calls "Marcus Albinius", is probably the same person.[6][7]
