Who is Quintus Caecilius Metellus?

Quintus Caecilius Metellus, was the owner of a palace in Tampillium on the Quirinal Hill, with a beautiful hanging garden in oriental style, with towers and terraces surrounded by a grove of trees, beside of a house and a tomb at the Fifth Mile of the Appian Way, where he was buried, having his fortune been made thanks to favours made to him during his campaign in Asia by his relative, perhaps his first cousin, Lucius Licinius Lucullus, son of Lucius Licinius Lucullus, Praetor in 103 BC, and wife Caecilia Metella.

Not having issue, he adopted his maternal nephew - son of his sister Caecilia Metella and husband Titus Pomponius - Titus Pomponius Atticus, who for that reason became called Quintus Caecilius Pomponianus Atticus.
