Arcesilaus (fl. 3rd century) was a Roman senator who was appointed consul in AD 267.


Possibly of Greek descent,[1] Arcesilaus was probably the grandson of Titus Flavius Arcesilaus, who was a Flamen of the Arval Brethren, and who served as the magister creatus throughout the 220s.[2] Arcesilaus himself was probably the Comes of Rome and Italia in AD 257. He was later made consul posterior alongside Ovinius Paternus in AD 267.[3]
