Another Daughter Of Arrius Calpurnius Piso

Another Daughter Of Arrius Calpurnius Piso
(Roman Piso, 05-26-2017)

Lately, I have been thinking of many of the things that Abelard Reuchlin never knew of regarding the Piso family of ancient Rome. This is one of those things. Abelard Reuchlin is no longer with us. He passed away more than a year ago.

Abelard Reuchlin was the first person to produce a work which was available to the public that named the actual authors of the New Testament (i.e., ‘The True Authorship of the New Testament’, 1979, 1986). He also gave us knowledge of the members of the immediate Piso family who were involved in the creation of Christianity.

Reuchlin revealed to the public who Arrius Piso’s children were; Claudia Phoebe (aka Pompeia Plotina), Alexander Calpurnius Piso, Julius Calpurnius Piso, Justus Calpurnius Piso, and Proculus Calpurnius Piso. But he did not know about another daughter of Arrius Piso.

Arrius Calpurnius Piso’s other daughter was called ‘Arria Antonina’. She was slightly younger than Claudia Phoebe, who was aka Pompeia Plotina, wife of the Emperor Trajan. Claudia Phoebe was also aka Arria Fadilla. In my other works, I have more information about Claudia Phoebe.

Arria Antonina, had other names. And we know this because her ‘Antonina’ name was the feminine form of her father’s alias name of ‘Arrius Antoninus’. The name ‘Antoninus’ was a name created by using one of Arrius Piso’s inherited names (‘Antonius’) and ‘ninus’ (i.e., “baby boy”), which alluded to Arrius Piso as the baby Jesus.

Even though I knew about Arria Antonina for awhile, I was not able to comment upon her in any of my works until now. The reason is that because of her name, I was not entirely certain that she was a different individual other than her sister Claudia Phoebe, who was aka Arria Fadilla. In all of these instances where there are similar names involved, caution and diligence is absolutely necessary or mistakes can be easily made. And, also, because under that name, she was associated with certain other people – which meant that I had to do more investigation and research into just what her relationship was with other family members.

Finding out things such as this can take time. Remember, even with all of my knowledge of the subject, my expertise and experience, and even working upon this with a high level of expertise for more than 20 years, it is only within the last few years that I discovered that Arrius Piso had this other daughter. And, the only way that such things can be discovered is by doing this exactly as I have been doing it, by building profiles or data bases for each individual and working slowly, carefully and with certainty.

How did I determine that she was not Claudia Phoebe? Well, like I had said before, I build profiles. And, I work with statistical data and other facts. In this instance, Arria Antonina could not have been Arria Fadilla (Claudia Phoebe), because Arria Antonina died before the year 97 CE, and Claudia Phoebe, as Pompeia Plotina, had married the Emperor Trajan in about the year 100, and she died in the year 129 CE as Pompeia Plotina.

If one were to read and believe the histories of the time as written, believing that the authors were being honest and forthright, we would never discover all of the things such as this, that they were hiding or disguising. If we thought of Claudia Phoebe, for instance, only as Pompeia Plotina, we would not know that she had children. The only way to discover such things, is to find out what alias or alternate names they were using. That is the way that they give other information about their lives. And, it is the only way that we can build the profiles that are essential to our work.

Another thing that caused this to take some time to reveal is that this other daughter appears to have been Pliny The Younger’s otherwise unknown first wife. So, I really wanted to write about Pliny The Younger and his wifes and include this information when I did. As you will see, Arria Antonina, was married to L. Junius Caesennius (i.e. the Pisonian name ‘Caesoninus’ rearranged)* Paetus.

Below are straight line stemma charts giving lines of descent from Arria Antonina.

Notes:

* The Piso family carried the name ‘Caesoninus’ in addition to their Calpurnius name as it denoted that they were a branch of the Caesars, known as the ‘Little Caesars’, or smaller/lesser Caesars. But they were ‘Caesars’ as well, and they fully expected to rule just as their Julian cousins had ruled. There are also other lesser or little known rules and meanings regarding Piso family names that I will later have to remind people about.

** Maecia Cethegilla and her husband Gaius had at least 3 children. There names were: Placidia, Gaius Memmius Orfitus, and Marcus Maecius Memmius Furius Barberius C. Placidius. At present, I cannot give the name of the husband/s of Placidia (if any). However, Gaius Memmius Orfitus was married to Vitrasia, and together, they produced very important lines of descent from two of their children (the genealogy of which will be given in another paper). Currently, I cannot give the name of any wife of Marcus Maecius Memmius Furius Barberius C. Placidius. However, he too, produced a line of descent which I will be presenting in another paper.

*** Justus C. Piso, was put to death by his own grandson, Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
