Plautilla, Augusta 202 - 22 January 205 A.D., Wife of Caracalla

Plautilla was the daughter of the immensely wealthy and powerful Praetorian Prefect Plautianus. She was married to Caracalla in 202 A.D., to both partners' mutual disgust. Their hatred for one another was so intense that they lived in different palaces and the marriage was likely never consummated. After the fall and execution of her father in 205, Plautilla was exiled to the Lipari islands. After seven years of suffering, Caracalla had her executed in 212 A.D.

Anazarbus was founded by Assyrians. Under the early Roman Empire it was known as Caesarea, and was the metropolis (capital) of the late Roman province Cilicia Secunda. It was the home of the poet Oppian. Rebuilt by the Byzantine emperor Justin I after an earthquake in the 6th century, it became Justinopolis (525); but the old native name persisted, and when Thoros I, king of Lesser Armenia, made it his capital early in the 12th century, it was known as Anazarva.
