Lucius Manlius Torquatus was a Roman scion of his more famous namesake Titus Manlius Torquatus. He is portrayed, in the time of his youth, by Cicero in De Finibus I & II as the spokesman advocating Epicurean ethics. Philodemus and Siro were likely his mentors.

In civic life he was elected consul in 65 BCE, became quaestor in 49 BCE, and was killed in action in the civil war (supporting Pompey) in North Africa in 47 BCE. Lavinia was his wife.
