Ann. iv. 74: ita quamquam diversis super rebus consulerentur, aram clementiae, aram amicitiae effigiesque circum Caesaris ac Seiani censuere; cf. Wissowa, Rel. 337). Its site is entirely unknown.

Agrippi'na Ii. 2. the daughter of Germanicus and Agrippina the elder, daughter of M. Vipsanius Agrippa. She was born between A. D. 13 and 17, at the Oppidum Ubiorum, afterwards called in honour of her Colonia Agrippina, now Cologne, land then the head-quarters of the legions commanded by her father. In A. D. 28, she married Cn. Domitius Ahenobarbus, a man not unlike her, and whom she lost in A. D. 40. After his death she married Crispus Passienus, who died some years afterwards; and she was accused of having poisoned him, either for the purpose of obtaining his great fortune, or for some secret motive of much higher importance. She was already known for her scandalous conduct, for her most perfidious intrigues, and for an unbounded ambition. She was accused of having committed incest with her own brother, the emperor Caius Caligula, who under the pretext of having discovered that she had lived in an adulterous intercourse with M. Aemilius Lepidus, the husband of her sister Drusilla, b
Ju'lia 7. Daughter of the preceding, and wife of L. Aemilius Paullus, by whom she had M. Aemilius Lepidus (D. C. 59.11; Suet. Calig. 24) and Aemilia, first wife of the emperor Claudius. (Suet. Cl. 26.) Less celebrated than her mother, Julia inherited her vices and misfortunes. For adulterous intercourse with D. Silanus (Tac. Ann. 3.24), she was banished by her grandfather Augustus to the little island Tremerus, on the coast of Apulia, A. D. 9, where she survived twenty years, dependent on the ostentatious bounty of the empress Livia. A child, born after her disgrace, was, by order of Augustus, exposed as spurious. Julia died in A. D. 28, and was buried in her place of exile, since, like her mother's, her ashes were interdicted the mausoleum of Augustus. (Tac. Ann. 4.71; Suet. Aug. 64, 65, 101; Schol. in Juv. Satt. 6.158.) It was probably this Julia whom Ovid celebrated as Corinna in his elegies and other erotic poems.

Latia'ris, Lati'nius in the earlier part of the reign of Tiberius had been praetor, but in what year is unknown. He was a creature of Sejanus, and aspired to the consulship. But at that time elation was the readiest road to preferment. Titius Sabinus had offended Sejanus by his steady friendship to the widow and children of Germanicus. Him, therefore, in A. D. 28, Latiaris singled out as his victim and stepping-stone to the consular fasces. He wormed himself into the confidence of Sabinus, and encouraged him to speak of Agrippina's wrongs and Sejanus' tyranny in a room where three confederates lay hid between the ceiling and the roof. After the fall of Sejanus, Latiaris was soon marked for destruction by Tiberius. The senate gladly condemned him, and Latiaris died without a murmur in his favour. (Tac. Ann. 4.68, 69, 6.4.) [W.B.D]
Ole'nnius one of the chief centurions (e pimipilaribus), was placed about A. D. 28 over the Frisii, whom Drusus had subdued. (Tac. Ann. 4.72.)
O'psius had previously been praetor, and was one of the accusers of Titius Sabinus ill A. D. 28, on account of the friendship of the latter with Gemanicus. (Tac. Ann. 4.68, 71.)

Rufus, Peti'lius 1. One of the accusers of Titius Sabinus in A. D. 28, because the latter had been a friend of Germanicus. Petilius had already been praetor, and he undertook that accusation in hopes of gaining the consulship (Tac. Ann. 6.68). The modern editions of Tacitus have Petitius, but we prefer the reading Petilius, as there was a consul of the name of Petilius Rufus in the reign of Domitian [No. 2].
Saloni'nus was given by Asinius Pollio, as an agnomen to his son C. Asinius Gallus [GALLUS, ASINIUS, No. 2]. Asinius Gallus seems not to have employed the name himself, but lie gave it as a cognomen to one of his sons by Vipsania, the former wife of the emperor Tiberius. This son, Asinius Saloninus, died in A. D. 28. (Tac. Ann. 3.75.) SALONI'NUS, P. LICI'NIUS CORNE'LIUS VALERIA'NUS, son of Gallienus and Saloinina, grandson of the emperor Valerian. When his father and grandfather assumed the title of Augustus, in A. D. 253, the youth received the designation of Caesar. Some years afterwards he was left in Gaul, under the charge of Silvanus, at the period when Gallienus was hastily summoned to encounter the rebel Ingentuus, in Pannoinia. The insurrection headed by Postumus soon after broke out, and Saloninus was driven to take refuge in Colonia Agrippina, where he was put to death by the conqueror, upon the capture of the city in A. D. 259 [see POSTUMUS], being at that time about seve
