Titus Statilius Taurus Corvinus
His maternal grandfather was Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus, his mother being Corvinus' daughter Valeria Messalina and his father was Titus Statilius Taurus III. His brother was Titus Statilius Taurus IV.
In 46, with Asinius Gallus, the grandson of Asinius Pollio, he conspired in a plot against the Emperor Claudius hatched with several of Claudius' own freedmen. Certainly Gallus was exiled, but rather than exiled Corvinus may have been put to death. He may have been the father of Statilia Messalina, the third wife of the Emperor Nero.
