L. Roscius Fabatus Moneyer of the Roman Republic from 64 BC to 64 BC.
Lucius Roscius Fabatus was a military officer and politician of the late Roman Republic.

He began his political career (cursus honorum) as a moneyer in 64 BC.[2] In 55 BC he was elected tribune of the plebs and co-sponsored at least one law, the lex Mamilia Roscia Alliena Peducaea Fabia. Associated with the faction of the populares, he supported Julius Caesar.

He was a member of Caesar's staff in the Gallic Wars and was charged with various tasks, including commanding the Thirteenth Legion on the Lower Rhine, in the winter of 54 BC. It was during this winter that Ambiorix induced the Eburones and Nervii to attack in detail the quarters of the Roman legions, but in the operations resulting from their revolt Fabatus seems to have taken no part, since the district in which he was stationed remained quiet.

After the assassination of Caesar, Fabatus took part in the ensuing civil wars. He was killed on April 14 or 15th, 43 BC, in the Battle of Forum Gallorum between Mark Antony and the legions of the senate.
