  The Internet Classics Archive | Aemilius Paulus by Plutarch
And such was Paulus Aemilius, advanced in years, being nearly threescore, yet vigorous in his own person, and rich in valiant sons and sons-in-law, besides a great number of influential relations and friends, all of whom joined in urging him to yield to the desires of the people, who called him to the consulship.
Aemilius, rejoicing, gave them, not so many as Polybius states, but, as Nasica himself tells us in a brief letter which he wrote to one of the kings with an account of the expedition, three thousand Italians that were not Romans, and his left wing consisting of five thousand.
Aemilius was no novice in these things, nor was ignorant of the nature of the seeming irregularities of eclipses- that in a certain revolution of time, the moon in her course enters the shadow of the earth and is there obscured, till, passing the region of darkness, she is again enlightened by the sun.

Thither they sent Aemilius, in the quality of praetor, not with six axes, which number other praetors were accustomed to have carried before them, but with twelve; so that in his praetorship he was honored with the dignity of a consul.
When it was night, and, supper being over, all were turning to sleep and rest, on a sudden the moon, which was then at full and high in the heavens, grew dark, and by degrees losing her light, passed through various colors, and at length was totally eclipsed.
Aemilius was no novice in these things, nor was ignorant of the nature of the seeming irregularities of eclipses, that in a certain revolution of time, the moon in her course enters the shadow of the earth and is there obscured, till, passing the region of darkness, she is again enlightened by the Sun.

 Aemilius Müller (I)
The "Three-Colour Cube 1000" by colour theorist and practician Aemilius Müller was intriduced in 1951.
Aemilius Müller pointed out that the gradations of colour-hue, often appearing monotonous, can be made more attractive by allowing them systematic deviations.
It represents a system of mixing colour, in that it shows the colours that arise when three transparent layers of the subtractive basic colours are superimposed at varying levels of saturation.

 Ancient History Sourcebook: Polybius: The Battle of Cannae, 216 BCE
It was to Aemilius [L. Aemilius Paullus, Consul for 216 B.C.] that all eyes turned, and on him the most confident hopes were fixed; for his life had been a noble one, and he was thought to have managed the recent Illyrian war with advantage to the state.
But Aemilius, dissatisfied with his position, and seeing that the Carthaginians would soon be obliged to shift their quarters for the sake of supplies, kept quiet in his camps, strengthening both with extra guards.
It was at this point that Lucius Aemilius fell, in the thick of the fight, covered with wounds: a man who did his duty to his country at that last hour of his life, as he had throughout its previous years, if any man ever did.

It is told, that when he had been proclaimed general against Perseus, and was honorably accompanied home by great numbers of people, he found his daughter Tertia, a very little girl, weeping, and taking her to him asked her why she was crying.
Then were exposed to view the cups of Antigonus and Seleucus, and those of the Thericlean make (Thericles, according to the more probable supposition, was a Corinthian potter: the first maker of a particular kind of cup, which long continued to bear his name.) and all the gold plate that was used at Perseus' table.

He declared Marcus Aemilius Lepidus first senator, who had already four times held that honour, and he removed from their office three of the senators of the least note.
The Romans, in the meanwhile, longed for his return, and oftentimes by their expressions in the theatres gave public testimony of their great desire and impatience to see him.
They report that the whole of his estate scarce amounted to three hundred and seventy thousand drachmas; to which he left his two sons co-heirs; but Scipio, who was the youngest, being adopted into the more wealthy family of Africanus, gave it all to his brother.

Lucius Aemilius Paullus was consul in 182 and in 168, when he dealt with the last Macedonian leader, Perseus.
Paullus was as destructive, brutal and greedy a Roman as they come, but because he was the father of Polybius's friend Scipio Aemilianus, he did not receive his due share of opprobrium in antiquity.
One was adopted by a descendant of the famous Cunctator and became Q. Fabius Maximus Aemilianus (the last name indicating that he had originally been an Aemilius); the other was adopted by the son of Scipio Africanus and became P. Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus.
