Antoninus Pius

by

Julius Capitolinus

I. Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Antoninus Pius1 was descended, on his father’s side, from a family which came from the country of Transalpine Gaul, more specifically, from the town of Nîmes. His grandfather was Titus Aurelius Fulvus, who after various offices of honour attained to a second consulship2 and the prefecture of the city; his father was Aurelius Fulvus, also consul, and a stern and upright man. His mother was Arria Fadilla; her mother was Boionia Procilla and her father Arrius Antoninus, twice consul3 and a righteous man, who pitied Nerva that he assumed the imperial power. Julia Fadilla was his mother’s daughter, his stepfather being Julius Lupus, a man of consular rank. His father-in-law was Annius Verus4 and his wife Annia Faustina,5 who bore him two sons6 and two daughters, of whom the elder7 was married to Lamia Silanus and the younger8 to Marcus Antoninus.
