For other with this surname, see Agrippa (disambiguation).

Decimus or Didius Haterius Agrippa was the son of the orator and senator Quintus Haterius.[1] He was tribune of the plebs in AD 15 and vetoed proposals; was praetor in 17, consul in 22, and senator from 15 on. Agrippa at one time strongly urged the emperor Tiberius to nominate a limited number of political candidates from each family. He died in 32, a victim of Tiberius' reign of terror.[2] He is not to be confused with Postumus Agrippa, a kinsman (half-uncle).

Tacitus describes him as a "somnolent creature". He married Domitia, daughter of Antonia Major and Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus. Their only child was Quintus Haterius Antoninus (cos. AD 53).
