History makes no mention of this Nigrinian, who is known only by the coins above alluded to. - Tristan supposes him to have been the son of the tyrant Alexander, who reigned in Africa during the time of Maxentius. - Beauvais and other subsequent writers, on the other hand, furnish more conclusive reasons for giving Carinus for his father and with much probability Arria Nigrina for his mother. - It would further appear that this prince died in his early youth, and that Carinus, after the example of Domitian, ambitiously gave Nigrinian the honours of the apotheosis. - Both Eckhel and Mionnet quote the gold coin from the museum of Saxe Gotha.
