Daughters of Pompeia and marriages
How can a daughter of Pompeia Magna have married a Scribonius Libo born in the 2nd century BC??!!!!!!! Pompeia was born around 78BC, she married after the year 59BC and not until 45 or 40Bc would her first daughter Cornelia Sulla be of marriageable age. How do you suppose a young woman of around 20 years of age in 40BC can have married a guy who was Tribune of the Plebs in 149 BC???? He was long dead by then !!!!!
The same goes for the statements claiming that Sextus Pompeius married his great-grand niece, granddaughter of his sister Pompeia Magna. Sextus and Pompeia are only a few years apart (reference: Moses Hadas-Sextus Pompeius). Again, if Pompeia married Faustus Sulla around the year 58 bc or probably later (after her father Pompey had married Julia Caesaris in 59 bc), again do the math... any child would be born around the year 56bc, and before Cornelia Sulla there was Faustus Sulla II and Lucius Cornelius Sulla. Then you need to add at least 15 years for Cornelia to become of a marriageable age. Then add one or two years for her to have her first kid, and another 15 to 20 years for her daughter to be able to marry. That takes us to around 25 BC and Sextus had already been dead for 10 years by then (he was killed in 35 bc).
