Titus Statilius Maximus was a Roman senator of the 2nd century AD. He was consul in the year 144 as the colleague of Lucius Hedius Rufus Lollianus Avitus.[1] He is known entirely from inscriptions.

Maximus was descended from a wealthy Syrian family; Géza Alföldy has identified two of his relatives active in that province, one the patron of Heliopolis (modern Baalbek), the other a prominent citizen of Beirut.[2] He was the son of Titus Statilius Maximus Severus Hadrianus, consul in 115.[3] It is possible Maximus was the father of Titus Statilius Severus, consul in 171.[4]

We are certain of two of the offices Maximus held as a senator, both after he stepped down from the consulate. Maximus is attested as curator aedium sacrarum in the year 146.[5] For the period 157/158, he was proconsular governor of Asia.[6]
