The grand-niece of the Roman emperor Trajan. By the influence of Plotina, Trajan's wife, Sabina was married to Hadrian (A.D. 100), but the marriage proved to be an unhappy one, and she took her own life (about A.D. 138). It was reported that her husband had poisoned her, but this is unworthy of belief (Spart. Hadr. 1, Spart. Hadr., 2, Spart. Hadr., 11, Spart. Hadr., 23; Oros. vii. 13).
