M. Eppius - Legatus Fisci Castrensis of Res Publica Romana from 47 BC to 46 BC
Marcus Eppius was Legatus Fisci Castrensis in 47-46 BC, and struck coins jointly with Metellus Scipio.

He was a Roman senator, who took an active part in favour of Pompeius on the breaking out of the Civil War in 49 BC. He was one of the legates of Quintus Metellus Scipio in the African war, and was pardoned by Caesar, with many others of his party, after the Battle of Thapsus. Afterwards he seems to have gone into Spain, and renewed the war under Sextus Pompeius, in 46 and 45.

Gens Eppia is chiefly known from the life of Marcus Eppius.
