Sextus Cocceius Anicius Faustus Paulinus[1] (fl. 3rd century AD) was a Roman senator who was appointed suffect consul sometime before AD 260/268.

Biography[edit]

Probably either the son or nephew of Anicius Faustus Paulinus, suffect consul before AD 230, Faustus Paulinus was a member of the Patrician third century gens Anicia. He was appointed suffect consul sometime before AD 260/268, and was the proconsular governor of Africa, most likely around AD 265/268, but it has been acknowledged that he may have filled the office sometime later, possibly between AD 276 and 285.[2]

It has been speculated that he was possibly the father of Anicius Faustus Paulinus, the consul of AD 298.[3]
