2. Pontia Postumia, was slain by her lover, Octavius Sagitta, tribune of the plebs, A. D. 58, because she refused to marry him after promising to do so. Sagitta was accused by the father of Pontia, and condemned under the lex Cornelia de Sicariis to the severest form of banishment (deportatio in insulam). In the civil wars following the death of Nero, Sagitta returned from banishment, but was again condemned by the senate, in A. D. 70, to his former punishment. (Tac. Ann. 13.44, Hist. 4.44.)
