Basilius Venantius iunior (floruit 508-533) was a politician of the Eastern Roman Empire.

Biography[edit]

He was probably the son of Decius Marius Venantius Basilius, consul in 484. Venantius had several sons who became consuls, among whom Decius, consul in 529, and Decius Paulinus, consul in 534.

Basilius Venantius himself was consul in 508. Later, but before 511, he was raised to the rank of patricius. In 533 he was still alive and still held the patriciate.
