L. Manlius L.f. Torquatus - Proquaestor of Res Publica Romana from 82 BC to 81 BC
Lucius Manlius L.f. Torquatus was proquaestor in Asia under Lucius Cornelius Sulla in 84 BC, for whom he issued gold and silver coinage. He returned to Rome with Sulla in 82 BC where he fought at the Battle of the Colline Gate. He was later elected Consul in 65 BC.

Gens Manlia was one of the oldest and noblest patrician houses at Rome, from the earliest days of the Republic until imperial times. The first of the gens to obtain the consulship was Gnaeus Manlius Cincinnatus, consul in 480 BC, and for nearly five centuries its members frequently held the most important magistracies. Many of them were distinguished statesmen and generals, and a number of prominent individuals under the Empire claimed the illustrious Manlii among their ancestors.

The cognomen Torquatus was first acquired by Titus Manlius Capitolinus Imperiosus, who defeated a giant Gaul during a battle in 361 BC, and took his torque - neck ring - as a trophy, placing it around his own neck.
