Rufinus (Roman governor)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

... Rufinus is the fragment of the name of a governor of Britannia Superior, a province of Roman Britain probably some time during the early third century AD. He may have been the same man as Aulus Triarius Rufinus who held the consulship in 210 although Quintus Aradius Rufinus who was consul ten or fifteen years later is another possibility. Alternatively he may have been neither of these men.

The name Rufinus is recorded only on an inscription found at the ancient Roman fort of Regulbium in Kent, in a context with pottery that could be loosely dated to c. 220 AD.
