Gale'ria Funda'na

the second wife of the emperor Vitellius, by whom he had a daughter and a son, Germanicus, who was almost deaf, and was afterwards killed by Mucianus. The father of Galeria Fundana had been praetor. She appears to have been a woman of a mild and gentle character, for she protected Trachalus, with her husband, against those who had denounced him, and she felt very deeply and keenly the brutal degradation and cruelty of which Vitellius was guilty. (Tac. Hist. 2.59, 60, 64, 3.66, 4.80; Suet. Vit. 6; D. C. 65.4.)
