Saturni'nus, Se'ntius

4. Cn. Sentius Saturninus, consul suffectus A. D. 4, was probably likewise a son of No. 2. since the latter had, as we have already seen, three sons in Syria, who were old enough to serve as his legati. He was appointed in A. D. 19, governor of Syria, and compelled Cn. Piso by force of arms to surrender the province to him. [PISO, No. 23.] Tacitus calls the governor of Syria simply Cn. Sentius, but there can be little doubt that he is the same as the consul suffectus of A. D. 4. (Tac. Ann. 2.74, 79, 81, 3.7.)
