About Tonantius Ferreolus, II

He was a Gallo-Roman Senator, Praefectus Praetorio Galliarum (Praetorian Prefect of Gaul) 451-452/3, Consul of Rome (453), and a Vir Clarissimus. He was serving as Pretorian Praefect when Attila the Hun was defeated at the Battle of Châlons in 451. His diplomacy ended the Seige of Arles by the Visigothic king Thorismodus. He was in Rome in 469 as a delegate to the trial of Arvandus, and again in 475. He had two known estates, Prusianum (on the Gardon, near Nîmes) and Trevidos (perhaps near Rodez).

--------------------

Tonantius Ferreolus (405 or ca 420 – 475), was the praetorian prefect of Gaul (praefectus praetorio Galliarum) from 451. He was either "personally related to" or "connected through (...) relatives" with Sidonius Apollinaris, and was associated with Thaumastus in the impeachment of Arvandus. He was the son of Ferreolus, born say 390, and wife Syagria, clarissima femina (?), born c.390, and thus maternal grandson of Flavius Afranius Syagrius, Consul in 382. He married Papianilla, clarissima femina, born ca 415, a niece of Emperor Avitus and the first cousin of another Papianilla, wife of Sidonius Apollinaris, and they had many children, among whom Tonantius Ferreolus. She was a partner who shared his troubles, according to Sidonius.

The praetorian prefecture of the Gauls (i.e. the provinces of Gaul, in Latin: praefectura praetorio Galliarum) was one of four large praetorian prefectures into which the Late Roman Empire was divided.
