Spurius Postumius Albinus (consul 110 BC)

For other persons with the cognomen "Albus" or "Albinus", see Albinus (cognomen).

Spurius Postumius Albinus was a politician of ancient Rome, of consul Quintus Caecilius Metellus Numidicus.[2][3][4] He was condemned by the Lex Mamilia, which was passed to punish all those who had been guilty of treasonable practices with Jugurtha.[5][6]

He was probably the son of Spurius Postumius Albinus Magnus.
