Lucius Caecilius Metellus Dalmaticus
Lucius Caecilius Metellus Dalmaticus (b. c. 160 BC) was a son of Lucius Caecilius Metellus Calvus. He was a Consul in 119 BC, a Censor in 115 BC and then Pontifex Maximus. He had eliminated from the Senate 32 of its members and fought Saturninus, thus contributing to the return to Rome, in 99 BC, of his brother Quintus Caecilius Metellus Numidicus. As Consul he defeated the Dalmatians, having for that deserved his cognomen and the Honours of the Triumph.
He was the father of:
- Lucius Caecilius Metellus
- Marcus Caecilius Metellus
- Caecilia Metella, wife of Marcus Aemilius Scaurus and later Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix
