    • Ovid (Fasti 5.155) is thought to have confused Licinia with Claudia who dedicated a sanctuary on the Aventine to the Bona Dea, but no evidence connects Licinia's dedication with this sanctuary (see Fraser, ad loc.). (Broughton MRR I)
    • The ara, aedicula, and pulvinar she dedicated below the rock on the Aventine were disallowed by the Pontifices on the ground that the dedication had not been ordained by the people (Cic. Dom. 136). (Broughton MRR I)
    • Accused of incest, and tried before the Pontifices, Aemilia on December 16, Licinia on December 18 (Fenestella in Macrob. Sat. 1.10.5). Dissatisfaction with the decision to condemn Aemilia and acquit the others led in 113 to the establishment of a special court under Cassius (see 113, Tribunes of the Plebs, and Special Prosecutor). (Broughton MRR I)
