Emilianus Corfo Olympius
Biography of Emilianus Corfo Olympius
- Emilianus Corfo Olympius was a Corax of the Mitreo di S. Silvestro in Capite.
- Active c. 376 in Roma, Latium (Italia).
His father Aurelius Victor Augentius, Pater Patrum of the Mitreo di Piazza S. Silvestro in Capite, dedicated an altar to the initiation of Emilianus as a sacred raven in 376, when he was still a child.
'These men held the rank of vir clarissimi, except for Aemilianus who is listed as a clarissimus puero, indicating he was only a child when he was initiated. Aemilianos also holds the unusual title of hierocoracica, which appears to be an alternative form of corax.'
