Paetus - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 169 BC to 158 BC
Paetus was one of the moneyers for the year 169-158 BC. He is not otherwise known, but is assumed to belong to Gens Aemiilia.

Gens Aemilia, originally written Aimilia, was one of the greatest patrician families at Rome. The gens was of great antiquity, and claimed descent from Numa Pompilius, the second King of Rome. The Aemilii were almost certainly one of the gentes maiores, the most important of the patrician families.
