Biography of Marcus Caerellius Hieronimus
- Marcus Caerellius Hieronimus was a Pater of the Mitreo del Caseggiato di Diana.
- Active circa 2nd century in Ostia, Latium (Italia).
Marcus Caerellius Hieronimus was member, in 198, of the collegium of the fabri tignuariorum Ostiensium (CIL XIV 4569). He was also pater (CIMRM 282, CIL XIV 70) as it is said a small white marble base discovered in 1867 in the area of the sanctuary of Magna Mater.
The Caerelli people seem to have played, in the 2nd-3rd centuries, an important role in the college of pistores in Rome and Ostia. In Rome we know a M. Caerellius Zmaragdus, curator pistorum in 144 (CIL VI 1002 = 31222) and in Ostia a M. Caerellius Iazemis, quinquennalis pistorum III et perp(etuus), et codicarius, item mercator frumentarius (CIL XIV 4234).
