Anicius Acilius Aginatius Faustus

Anicius Acilius Aginantius Faustus iunior (floruit 483-508), also known as Faustus albus ("white"),[1] was a Roman politician under Odoacer's rule.


Faustus' career is attested by two inscriptions on seats of the Colosseum.[2]

He is attested as praefectus urbi of Rome in an inscription celebrating his work of restoration of an image of Minerva damaged by a falling roof during a civil riot. The riot can be identified with the civil war that led to the deposition and death of Emperor Anthemius, in 472, while the restoration could have been performed under Odoacer, but before 483.[3]

In 483 he was appointed consul, without colleague.[4] It is probable that he was not recognised by the Eastern court.[5]

In 502-503 he could have been appointed praefectus urbi for the second time. In those years he was contacted by Magnus Felix Ennodius to be appointed advocatus fisci in Liguria.[6] Ennodius wrote him also in 506 and 508.[7] He might also be the recipient of a letter by Avitus of Vienne.[8]
