Sabi'nus, Fla'vius

4. Flavius Sabinus, the son of the praefect of the city [No. 2], was besieged with his father in the Capitol. but escaped when it was burnt down. He married Julia, the daughter of his cousin Titus. He was consul A. D. 82, with his cousin Domitian, but was afterwards slain by the emperor, on the frivolous pretext that the herald in proclaiming his consulship had called him Imperator instead of consul. Domitian's love for his wife was perhaps the real reason of his death. (D. C. 65.17; Philostr. Apollon. Tyan. 7.3; Suet. Dom. 10.)
