Biography[edit]

Autronius Paetus was the son of Publius Autronius Paetus, who had been elected Roman consul for 65 BC, but was convicted of electoral fraud prior to entering office. A supporter of Octavianus, he was appointed suffect consul on 1 January 33 BC, replacing Octavianus on his first day as consul.[1] Then in 29/28 BC, he was appointed the proconsular governor of Africa,[2] during which time he was acclaimed imperator by his troops, for which he celebrated a triumph in 28 BC.[3]
