Quintus Postumius Lepidinus
Quintus Postumius Lepidinus was a member of the Roman knighthood ( Eques ) living in the 3rd century AD .
An inscription dated 201/250 proves that Lepidinus was prefect of a cavalry unit ( praefectus equitum ); the unit is likely to have been the Ala I Thracum Veterana , which was stationed in the province of Pannonia Inferior at the time.
- On the tombstone only the rank, but not the name of the unit that Lepidinus commanded, is given. Both John EH Spaul and Zsolt Mráv assume that Lepidinus commanded the Ala I Thracum Veterana , as the tombstone was found near Campona Fort , where the Ala was presumably stationed.
