C. Licinius L.f. Macer Moneyer of the Roman Republic from 84 BC to 84 BC.
Gaius Licinius Macer was an official and annalist of ancient Rome - and one of the moneyers for the year 84 BC.

He was tribune in 73 BC; Sallust mentions him agitating for the people's rights. He became praetor in 68 BC, but in 66 BC Cicero succeeded in convicting him of bribery and extortion, upon which he committed suicide.

Macer also wrote a history of Rome, in 16 books. The work is now lost, but from Livy and Dionysius, who both used it, we know that it began with the founding of the city.

Moneyer was an official and annalist of ancient Rome. He became tribune in 73 BC and praetor in 68, but in 66 Cicero succeeded in convicting him of bribery and extortion, upon which Macer committed suicide. He wrote a history of Rome, in 16 books which is now lost. Livy casts doubt on Macer's reliability, suggesting that he misrepresented events in order to glorify the Licinii, but notes that he quotes original sources, such as the Linen Rolls. (wikipedia)
