Caius Cassius Longinus Varus was one of the moneyers for the year 84 BC, and later served as consul in 73 BC. He may have been the father of the more famous assassin of Caesar, Gaius Cassius Longinus.

Cassius and his colleague passed the lex Terentia Cassia that ordered the state to buy up grain in Sicily and sell it for a low price in Rome. As proconsul of Cisalpine Gaul in 72 BC, during the Third Servile War, Cassius tried to stop Spartacus and his followers near Mutina as the slave army was trying to break through to unoccupied Gaul, but suffered defeat and barely managed to get away alive.

wo years later, Cassius appeared asa witness for the prosecution, which was being led by Cicero, in the trial against the corrupt former governor of Sicily, Verres.
