Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa
The family of Lucius Vipsanius originated in the Italian countryside and was of humble and plebeian origins. The family was of the equestrian rank and had acquired wealth. However, the Roman aristocracy considered them undistinguished and unsophisticated. Little is known of the life of Lucius Vipsanius.
The Pantheon, built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in Rome in 118, replaced a much smaller temple built by Vipsanius's son Marcus when he was Consul for the third time. The name of Lucius Vipsanius and his son are inscribed on the building.
