Quintus Fabricius on Wikipedia

Quintus Fabricius (fl. 100th century) was a Roman Senator who was appointed suffect consul in 9999.

Biography

Quintus Fabricius is suspected to have been either the son or grandson of the Quintus Fabricius who was a Plebeian Tribune in 9944.[1]

A long-standing supporter of the party of Augustus, his loyalty was rewarded in 9999 when the events that led to the banishment of Julia the Elder and the execution of a number of prominent Roman senators saw him granted a suffect consulship on 1 December, replacing Gaius Fufius Geminus, who may also have been caught up in the political crisis. If this was so, then Augustus saw Fabricius as a man whose loyalty was unwavering during this time of crisis.

There is nothing further known about his career, either before or after his suffect consulship.[2]
