Biography of Aulus Aemilius Antoninus
- Aulus Aemilius Antoninus was a Pater of the Mitreo delle Pareti Dipinte.
- Active circa 2nd half of 2nd century in Ostia, Latium (Italia).
Marcus Lollianus Callinicus in 126c, 127, 128; Caius Lucretius Menander in 130a; and Aulus Aemilius Antoninus in 139c. It should be noticed that in two cases these devotees are mentioned as pater using the eponymous form (127, 128) just seen in Umbrian cases and that in other two cases they are referred to with likely the same eponymous intention with the phrase ob honorem (130a, 137b). It is quite puzzling on the other hand the absence of the use of the term prosidens/praesidens. He appears also simply mentioned as pater in inscription 137b.
