Biography

Alcimus, steward of T. Claudius Livianus, has dedicated the earliest known sculpture of a Mithras Taurcotonos. Vermaseren and Gordon believe that Tiberius Claudius Livianus was commander of the Praetorian Guard in 101 AD.

Alcimus, a wealthy slave steward of Tiberius Claudius Livianus, a knight close to Trajan who became prefect of the Praetorium in 101, can be dated to the very end of the 1st or, rather, the beginning of the 2nd century.
