Fausta


1.

Cornelia, daughter of Sulla , and married to Milo, the partisan of Cicero. She disgraced herself by a criminal affair with the historian Sallust (Hor. Sat. i. 2, 41; Schol. Cruq. et Acr. ad loc.).


2.

Flavia, the daughter of Maximian, and wife of Constantine the Great. When her father wished her to join him in a plot for assassinating her husband, she disclosed the whole affair to the latter. After exercising the most complete ascendency over the mind of her husband, she was eventually put to death by him, on his discovering the falsity of a charge which she had made against Crispus, the son of Constantine by a previous marriage (Eutrop. x. 2, 4; Victor. Epit. 40, 41). See Constantinus.
