Gnaeus Acerronius Proculus was a consul of the Roman Empire in 37 AD, the year in which Tiberius died.[1][2] He was perhaps a descendant of the Cn. Acerronius whom Cicero mentions in his oration for Tullius, Pro Tullio, from 71 BC, as a vir optimus. He may have been the father of Acerronia Polla, a friend of Agrippina the Younger, murdered by the emperor Nero in AD 59.[3][4]
