Lucius Cassius Longinus (tribune 105 BC)
Lucius Cassius Longinus was a Roman politician and statesman who served as tribune of the plebs in the year 105 BC. He was of no relation to his identically named contemporary, the consul for 107 BC who died fighting the Tigurini.
In the tribunate, he served with colleagues including Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus. In the office, Longinus passed a law stripping persons who had their imperium revoked by the Assembly of their seats in the Senate, which was targeted towards the much-hated general Quintus Servilius Caepio who had lost the Battle of Arausio in 107 BC, and afterwards, was then stripped of his proconsular imperium by the Assembly.
