Matidia, Niece of Trajan, Daughter of Mariana, Mother of Sabina, Augusta c. 113 - 119 A.D.

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.

Anazarbus was founded by Assyrians. Under the early Roman Empire it was known as Kaicare?n (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.
