Julia Paula, Julia Cornelia Paula, said to be the daughter of Paulus, praectorian prefect, was the first wife of Elagabalus having been married to that odious miscreant A.D. 219. Divorced shortly after her nuptials, on some pretence of bodily defect, she died in retirement.
Her gold coins are of the highest rarity, silver by no means scarce, first brass and second brass very rare. Her name of Cornelia, to which illustrious family she belonged, is omitted on her Latin medals, on which she is styled only IVLIA PAVLA AVGVSTA.
