[loo-kuhl-uhs]
This article is on the Consul of 151 BC - for the descendent (this man's grandson) see Lucullus, and for others of this name see Licinius (gens).

Lucius Licinius Lucullus was a novus homo who became Consul in 151 BC. He was imprisoned by the Tribunes for attempting to enforce a troop levy too harshly. Upon reaching Hispania, he was disappointed to find that the Celtiberians had made peace, and attacked the Vaccaei and Cauci, massacring the second after having made an agreement with them. He was also envolved in the Lusitanian War.
