Titus Peducaeus

Last updated

Titus Peducaeus (fl. 1st century BC) was a Roman senator who was appointed suffect consul in 35 BC.



Peducaeus was a member of a late Republican senatorial family, but much of Peducaeus’ career is unclear. Confusion in the sources means that events in which a Peducaeus participated could be assigned to a number of individuals of the same gens . It is believed that Titus Peducaeus may possibly have been the Caesarean governor of Corsica et Sardinia in 48 BC; the primary source for this, Appian, gives him the praenomen "Sextus", but this has been questioned. [1]

By 40 BC, he was possibly a legate under Lucius Antonius in Hispania. [2] Then in 35 BC, he was appointed consul suffectus , replacing Lucius Cornificius. [3] Nothing further is known of his career.

The patrician members of the family regularly occupied the highest offices of the Roman state down to the time of the Punic Wars. Their most famous member was Lucius Papirius Cursor, five times consul between 326 and 313 BC, who earned three triumphs during the Samnite Wars. Most of the Papirii who held office under the later Republic belonged to various plebeian branches of the family. Although the most illustrious Papirii flourished in the time of the Republic, a number of the family continued to hold high office during the first two centuries of the Empire.

An inscription, described by Ronald Syme as "one of the most remarkable inscriptions ever set up in honour of a Roman senator," praises Calvisius for pietas, his sense of duty or devotion. As a military officer, Calvisius is notable for his long service and competence, though he was not without serious defeats.
