Publius Tullius Albinovanus

Publius Tullius Albinovanus

For others with this name, see Albinovanus.
Publius Tullius Albinovanus belonged to the party of Marius in the first civil war, and was one of the twelve who were declared enemies of the state in 87 BC. He thereupon fled to Hiempsal II in Numidia. After the defeat of Gnaeus Papirius Carbo and Gaius Norbanus in 81 BC, he obtained the pardon of Sulla by treacherously putting to death many of the principal officers of Norbanus, whom he had invited to a banquet. Ariminium in consequence revolted to Sulla, whence the Pseudo-Asconius speaks of Albino­vanus betraying it.
