She was one of the most active among the conspirators, who compassed his destruction. She subsequently became the wife of Eclectus, his chamberlain, also a conspirator, and was eventually put to death by Julianus, along with Laetus, who also had been actively engaged in the plot. We are told apparently by Xiphilinus, that she was friendly to the Christians, for whom, through her influence with the emperor, she procured many advantages. (D. C. 72.4, 73.16.) [COMMODUS; ECLECTUS, LAETUS, QUADRATUS.]
