Didia Claria, Augusta, 28 March - 1 June 193 A.D., Daughter of Didius Julianus

Didia Clara was the only child of Didius Julianus and Manlia Scantilla and was made Augusta the day her father became emperor. Described as among the most beautiful women in Rome, she married Sextus Cornelius Repentinus, the prefect of Rome, during her father's brief two month reign. Didia Clara survived her father's downfall, but was stripped of her title and the details of her life thereafter are unknown. Due to the short reign of her father, coins of Didia Clara are extremely rare.
