Biography of Aurelius Sabinius

Pater Aurelius Sabinus, together with leo Bebius Quintianus, dedicated two altars to Cautes and Cautopates found in the Mithraeum S. Stefano Rotondo. Aurelius Sabinius is also mentioned on a dedication to Hercules (CIL VI 273) as eq(ues) R(omanus), son of M. Aurelius Bassinus, centurion exercitator:

Deo Herculi Marcus Aurelius Bassinus centurio exercitator numeri equitum singularium cum Aurelio Sabino equite Romano filio votum libens solvit.
To the god Hercules. Marcus Aurelius Bassinus, centurio exercitator of the unit of the equites singulares, with Aurelius Sabinus, eques Romanus, his son, willingly discharged his vow.

Bassinus is known to have served in the frumentarii in the early 180s before being promoted to the horse guard. He was therefore not a centurion commissioned exequite Romano, but a man who had worked his way up from the ranks. His son, Sabinus, probably acquired equestrian status late in the reign of Commodus.
