Lucius Cassius Hemina, Roman annalist, composed his annals in the period between the death of Terence and the revolution of the Gracchi.

He wrote in Latin up to 146 BC, including the earliest account concerning the bravery of Gaius Mucius Scaevola. Hemina also discusses the arrival in Rome of the Greek physician Archagathus.[1]

The fragments of his works have been edited by Peter in Historicorum Romanorum Fragmenta, and more recently in a separate edition with commentary by Carlo Santini in I Frammenti di L.
