  • Aulus Larcius Priscus was a Roman Senator and general who held several posts in the emperor's service. His career is unusual in that Priscus held a very senior post -- governor of Syria -- at an unusually early point in his life. He was suffect consul for the nundinium October–December 110 with as his colleague. Priscus is known almost entirely from inscriptions. Martha W. Baldwin Bowsky has set forth the evidence of Priscus' ancestry. He was the son of Aulus Larcius Lepidus Sulpicianus and Caecina A.f. Larga; a sister has been identified for him, Larcia A.f. Priscilla. His father Sulpicianus is best known as quaestor to the proconsular governor of Crete and Cyrenaica and commander of Legio X Fretensis in the year 70; his cursus honorum does not list any offices from praetor forward, so it is possible Sulpicianus died before he reached that rank. Priscus' maternal grandfather was Gaius Silius, consul in AD 13. His paternal grandparents were Aulus Larcius Gallus, a member of the equestrian class, and Sulpicia Telero, a daughter of the aristocracy of Crete. (en)
