Vale'rius Asia'ticus

2. P. Valerius Asiaticus, the legatus of the province of Gallia Belgica at the death of Nero, espoused the cause of Vitellius at the beginning of A. D. 69, and soon afterwards married the daughter of Vitellius. On the fall of Vitellius he hastened to make his peace with the generals of Vespasian, and as consul designatus spoke in the senate in favour of their proposals. He was allowed in consequence to enjoy the consulship as suffectus in the following year, A. D. 70. (Tac. Hist. 1.59, 4.4, 6.)
