Antonia (aunt of Mark Antony)
Antonia was a daughter of Marcus Antonius the orator, who was the proconsul for the Roman province of Cilicia. She was abducted in Italy, during a visit to Misenum (modern Miseno), by the Cilician pirates with whom her father had so often clashed. Her freedom was obtained only on payment of a large ransom.
