Gaius Julius Erucius Clarus Vibianus

Gaius Julius Erucius Clarus Vibianus (died 197) was a Roman politician and senator. He was appointed consul with Quintus Pompeius Sosius Falco in AD 193, during the reign of Commodus.

Vibianus came from an Italian family or from one of the Western provinces. He was the son of Gaius Erucius Clarus, consul in AD 170. He came from the powerful equestrian family of the Erucii. His grandfather, Sextus Erucius Clarus, was consul in AD 146, and before that City Prefect of Rome. His great-grandfather, who was consul suffectus in AD 117, was the brother (or perhaps half-brother) of Gaius Septicius Clarus.

Vibianus survived the purges of Septimus Severus that claimed the lives of fellow consuls Quintus Pompeius Sosius Falco and Marcus Silius Messala.

As a follower of the usurper Clodius Albinus, the former Governor of Britain, Vibianus was executed by Septimius Severus after the defeat and death of Albinus in 197.[1]
