About Lucius Vibius Sabinus
His ancestry is unknown. Not son of Titus Flavius Sabinus.
Lucius Vibius Sabinus (died 83 or 84) was a Roman Senator that lived in the 1st century. Little is known on his family however Sabinus originally came from a family of consular rank. There is a possibility, Sabinus was related to Lucius Junius Quintus Vibius Crispus and his brother Quintus Vibius Secundus. Lucius Junius Quintus Vibius Crispus served as a Legatus in Hispania Citerior and was three times suffect consul during the reigns of Roman Emperors Nero 54-68, Vespasian 69-79 and Domitian 81-96. Quintus Vibius Secundus served as a suffect consul in 86 and in 113 served as Proconsul in the Province of Asia.
In an uncertain year, Sabinus was honoured and served as suffect consul. Sabinus also served as a Proconsul of Asia. Sabinus was possibly a friend to the Roman Senators Gnaeus Arrius Antoninus, Marcus Annius Verus and future Roman Emperor Trajan.
Sabinus between 81-82 married Trajan’s niece Salonina Matidia. In 83, Matidia bore Sabinus a daughter called Vibia Sabina (83-136/137). Shortly after his daughter’s birth, Sabinus died. Vibia Sabina would marry her distant maternal cousin and Trajan’s heir, future Emperor Hadrian and become a Roman Empress.
The daughter and youngest child born to Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and Roman Empress Faustina the Younger, minor princess Vibia Aurelia Sabina (170-died before 217), thus was a great, great niece to Vibia Sabina was named in honour of Lucius Vibius Sabinus and his daughter Vibia Sabina.
