About Marcus Licinius Crassus Frugi, Consul 64

Marcus Licinius Crassus Frugi II. He served as consul in 64[1] under Roman emperor Nero. Nero had Frugi executed between 66 and 68, because of information brought against him by Marcus Aquilius Regulus.[2] After his death, his widow with their children went to a Roman Senate meeting in 70 early in the reign of Roman emperor Vespasian, seeking vengeance for Frugi’s death.[3] Regulus with his associated political circle was prosecuted by the Roman Senate.[4] The wife of Frugi was Sulpicia Praetextata daughter of the suffect consul in 46, Quintus Sulpicius Camerinus Peticus.[5][6] With Sulpicia Praetextata, Frugi had a daughter called Licinia Praetextata who served as a Chief Vestal Virgin.[7] With Sulpicia Praetextata, Frugi also had three sons: Lucius Scribonius Libo Rupilius Frugi Bonus who served as a suffect consul in 88, Marcus Licinius Scribonianus Camerinus and Gaius Calpurnius Piso Crassus Frugi Licinianus, who served as a consul in 87.[8][9] Gaius Calpurnius Piso Crassus Frugi Licinianus and with his wife Agedia Quintina conspired against the Roman emperor Nerva and the couple was banished by Nerva to Taranto. Calpurnius Piso tried for a second time to escape and was banished by the Roman emperor Trajan to a solitary island and on his third attempt to escape he died. Calpurnius Piso was also placed in the tomb of Licinii Calpurnii. Lucius Scribonius Libo Rupilius Frugi Bonus married the niece of Trajan, Salonina Matidia as her third husband,[10] by whom had a daughter called Rupilia Faustina,[10] who became the paternal grandmother of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius.[11][12]
