Lucius Vibius Sabinus
Lucius Vibius Sabinus (died 83 or 84) was a Roman Senator who lived in the 1st century.
Little is known about his family, but he came from a family of consular rank. He may have been related to Lucius Junius Quintus Vibius Crispus and his brother Quintus Vibius Secundus. Lucius Junius Quintus Vibius Crispus served as a legate in Hispania Citerior and was three times suffect consul during the reigns of Nero (54-68), Vespasian (69-79), and Domitian (81-96). Quintus Vibius Secundus served as a suffect consul in 86 and in 113 served as Proconsul in the Province of Asia.
In an uncertain year, Sabinus was honoured and served as suffect consul. Sabinus also served as a Proconsul of Asia. Sabinus was possibly a friend to the Senators Gnaeus Arrius Antoninus and Marcus Annius Verus, and the future emperor Trajan.
Around the years 81-82, Sabinus married Trajan’s niece Salonina Matidia. In 83, Matidia bore Sabinus a daughter called Vibia Sabina (83-136/137). Shortly after his daughter’s birth, Sabinus died. Vibia Sabina would marry her distant maternal cousin and Trajan’s heir, the future emperor Hadrian.
