Lucius Clodius Macer

Lucius Clodius Macer was a legatus of the Roman Empire in Africa in the time of Nero. He revolted in 68 AD, cutting off the food supply of Rome. Although encouraged by Galba, Macer raised a legion Legio I Macriana liberatrix in addition to the Legio III Augusta that he already commanded, presumably raising suspicion that Macer also harbored imperial ambitions, and in October of 68 Galba had him killed by Trebonius Garutianus.
