Paullus Fabius Maximus, Roman Proconsul of Asia, c. 10 - 9 B.C., Hierapolis, Phrygia
|Hierapolis|, |Paullus| |Fabius| |Maximus,| |Roman| |Proconsul| |of| |Asia,| |c.| |10| |-| |9| |B.C.,| |Hierapolis,| |Phrygia|, Paullus Fabius Maximus was related to Augustus by marriage and was a descendant of Lucius Aemilius Paullus Macedonicus (220 - 160 B.C.), the conqueror of King Perseus of Macedon. As a quaestor, he accompanied Augustus on his trips to the East from 22 to 19 B.C. He was consul in 11 B.C. and subsequently proconsul (governor) of Asia. He apparently enjoyed poetry and was a correspondent of both Horace and Ovid (both mentioned him in their works). His portrait on coinage indicates Augustus' friendship and appreciation. MATT adds: Tacitus suggests that Fabius Maximus traveled with Augustus to release his grandson Postumus from banishment and replace him with a slave named Clement. In this account, Augustus intended for Postumus to succeed him instead of Tiberius. However, Fabius Maximus told his wife who alerted Livia. The plot was brutally supressed.
