Su'pera, Corne'lia

A few medals, both Roman and Greek, are extant bearing the above name, with the addition of Augusta or CEBACTH. Antiqurians differ in opinion as to the reign to which they belong, but from the date upon a coin of Aegae in Cilicia, which bears her name, it seems almost certain that she must have been the wife either of Trebonianus Gallus, or of Aemilianus, while other circumstances make it highly probable that the latter was her husband. (Eckhel, vol. vii. p. 374.)
