Spurius Postumius Albinus Magnus was a politician of ancient Rome, of patrician rank, of the 2nd century BC.[1] He was consul in 148 BC, in which year a great fire happened at Rome.[2] It is this Spurius Albinus of whom Cicero speaks in the Brutus, and says that there were many orations of his.[3]

He was probably the father of Spurius Postumius Albinus and Aulus Postimius Albinus.
