Lucius Postumius Albinus was a politician of ancient Rome, of patrician rank, of the 2nd century BC. He was curule aedile in 161 BC, and exhibited the Ludi Megalenses, at which Terence's play Eunuchus had debuted. He was consul in 154 BC, and died seven days after he had set out from Rome in order to go to his province. It was supposed that he was poisoned by his wife.

He was apparently son of Spurius Postumius Albinus.
