L. Papius - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 79 BC to 79 BC
L. Papius was one of the moneyers for the year 79 BC. He is not otherwise known, but was probably not a populares or an opponent of Sulla, or he would not have been appointed moneyer.

He was probably the father of the moneyer L. Papius who became censor under Caesar.

The gens Papia was a plebeian family at Rome. Members of this gens are first mentioned at the time of the Samnite Wars, but do not appear at Rome until the final century of the Republic. Marcus Papius Mutilus was the only member of the family to attain the consulship, which he held in AD 9.
