Matidia, Niece of Trajan, Daughter of Mariana, Mother of Sabina, Augusta c. 113 - 119 A.D., Cotiaeum, Phrygia
Matidia was the daughter of Marciana, Trajan's niece, and by all accounts she was adored by him. She bore several children, notably the future empress Sabina, wife of Hadrian. After her her mother died, about c. 113, by a decree of the Senate, she was declared Augusta. Possessing all the virtues of her mother, she received the honors of the apotheosis during the reign of Hadrian. The coins of Matidia are of the greatest rarity, especially the sestertius.
