Biography[edit]

Torquatus Asprenas was the son of Lucius Nonius Calpurnius Torquatus Asprenas, who was a suffect consul between AD 72 and 74, and Arria Calpurnia. An Augur, he was elected Roman consul in AD 94, with Titus Sextius Magius Lateranus as his colleague. From 107 to 108, Torquatus Asprenas was appointed the Proconsular governor of Asia. He was appointed consul for a second time, in AD 128, when the consul designate Publius Metilus Nepos died before assuming office; Marcus Annius Libo was the colleague.[1]
