Albucilla was the wife of Satrius Secundus, and was infamous for having had many lovers.[1] In the last year of the reign of the emperor Tiberius, 37 AD, she was accused of treason, or impiety, against the emperor (Latin: impietatis in principem) along with Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus, Vibius Marsus, and Lucius Arruntius. As a result she was imprisoned by command of the senate after making an unsuccessful attempt to commit suicide.[2]
