Sextus Anicius Faustus Paulinus (fl. 325–333) was an aristocrat of the Roman Empire. The offices he is known to have held were: Proconsul of Africa Province; consul with Julius Julianus as his colleague in 325; and between 331 and 333 praefectus urbi.

A member of the gens Anicia, his father was probably Anicius Faustus, his brother Amnius Anicius Julianus (consul of 322); Amnius Anicius Paulinus was probably his son or his grandson,[1] or the son of his brother.[2] Perhaps he is to be identified with that Anicius who was the first senator of that lineage to publicly convert to Christianity.
