  Aemilius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Aemilii were a very old clan; they were supposed to have descended from Mamercus, a son of Pythagoras who was surnamed "Aemylos" or "Aimilios" because of his refinement and speaking ability.
The branches of the Aemilii were Barbula, Buca, Lepidus, Mamercus, Papus, Paullus, Regilus and Scaurus.
Of these, the Aemilii Lepidi had become the most notable, especially at the end of the Republic.

The family professed to derive its name from Mamercus in the reign of Numa, to whom indeed all the Aemilii traced their origin.
The name Mamercus was very early used as a prae-nomen in the Aemilia gens, and continued to be so employed, especially by the Aemilii Lepidi, long after the family of this name had become extinct.
In the same way we find that Cossus, which was originally a family-name of the Cornelii, was re­vived as a praeribmen by the Cornelii Lentuli, after the family of the Cossi had sunk into oblivion.

 P. Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus Africanus Minor (185/4-129 B.C.)
Scipio and his brother persuaded the authorities to allow Polybius to remain in Rome, where he became a close friend and mentor of the two young men.
No doubt Scipio was oppressed by the thought of the responsibility that he would have on becoming the head of the great house of the Scipios (it is uncertain when his adoptive father, Publius Scipio, died) as well as in representing the Aemilii.
Under Polybius' guidance, he was determined to prove a worthy representative and to pursue the normal aims of a Roman noble: honour, glory, and military success.

The feast was served in the old proconsular house, with the Roman paraphernalia, arranged with the amount of correct imitation that is to be found at an English dinner-party in the abode of an Indian Rajah.
It began with Roman etiquette, but ended in a Gothic revel, which the sober and refined AEmilii could hardly endure.
They were to set off on their return early on the morrow, Meinhard and Odo with them; but when they at length escaped from the barbarian orgies, they had little expectation that their companions would join them in the morning.

 The Old Roman World - The Grandeur and Failure of its Civilization By John Lord, LL.D.- Chapter 7 from Nalanda Digital ...
The stability of the Roman aristocracy is seen in the fact, that, from the year 388 to 581, when the consulate was held by one patrician and one plebeian, one hundred and forty of the consuls, out of the three hundred and eighty-six, belonged to sixteen great houses.
The Cornelii furnished thirty consuls in one hundred and ninety-three years, the Valerii eighteen, the Claudii twelve, the Aemilii fifteen, the Fabii twelve, the Manlii ten, the Postumii eight, the Servilii seven, the Sulpicii eight, the Papirii four, to say nothing of other curule offices.
And as the House of Lords has accessions occasionally from the ranks of the people, in consequence of great wealth, or political interest, or eminent genius, or signal success in war, so the Roman nobility was increased, as old families died out, by the successful generals who gained the great offices of state.
