Bassus was probably the son of the Anicius Auchenius Bassus who was praefectus urbi in 382-383 and of Turrenia Honorata. He had a son, also called Anicius Auchenius Bassus, consul in 431. He wrote the epigraph on the tomb of Monica, Augustine of Hippo's mother. The actual stone on which it was written was rediscovered in 1945 in the church of Santa Aurea, in Ostia Antica.
