Biography of Marcus Aurelius Stertinius Carpus

  • Marcus Aurelius Stertinius Carpus was a brother.
  • Active circa 176 – 192 in Roma, Latium (Italia).
Marcus Aurelius Stertinius, whose father was procurator of a Roman camp, dedicated a monument to Sol Invictus Mithras along with his father and two of his brothers in arms, Hermioneus and Balbinus. His name, Marcus Aurelius, suggests that a member of the Severan dynasty had granted him Roman citizenship.

The gens Stertinia was a plebeian family of ancient Rome. It first rose to prominence at the time of the Second Punic War, and although none of its members attained the consulship in the time of the Republic, a number of Stertinii were so honoured in the course of the first two centuries of the Empire.
