Sextus Catius Clementinus Priscillianus (fl. 3rd century AD) was a Roman military officer and senator who was appointed consul in AD 230.

Biography[edit]

Catius Clementinus was a member of the third century gens Catia, and it has been speculated that he may have been the son of either Publius Catius Sabinus (consul in AD 216), or a [Catius? Lepi]dus I[—], a suffect consul sometime during the early third century.[1]

Catius Clementinus’ early career is unknown, but in AD 230, he was made consul ordinarius alongside Lucius Virius Agricola. In the following year (AD 231), he was appointed Legatus Augusti pro praetore (or imperial governor) of Germania Superior.

Catius Clementinus may have been the brother of Gaius Catius Clemens, suffect consul c. AD 235 and Lucius Catius Celer, suffect consul c. AD 241.
