Biography edit

Titus Aurelius Fulvus was ordinary consul in 89 with Marcus Asinius Atratinus as his colleague.[1][2] This Fulvus has been described by Augustan History as a "stern and upright man.” The younger Fulvus married Arria Fadilla, a daughter of the consul Gnaeus Arrius Antoninus and friend to the historian Pliny the Younger. Their only child was Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionius Arrius Antoninus, who was born in Lanuvium (modern Lanuvio), Italy, on 19 September 86; who was raised by Fulvus' father-in-law after his early death. This son became the emperor Antoninus Pius.
