Quintus Sulpicius Camerinus Peticus was a Roman senator during the reign of Nero. Peticus served as suffect consul in 46 with Marcus Junius Silanus as his colleague, and as Proconsul of Africa from 56 to 57.[1][2]

Peticus was a member of the gens, Sulpicia. He was also a member of the Arval Brethren, and served as president of the Board of Sacrifice in 60.[2] He was charged with extortion but was acquitted by Roman emperor Nero.[3] In 67, he was killed with his son Quintus Sulpicius Camerinus Pythicus[4] by Helius during the absence of Nero.[5] Peticus also had a daughter called Sulpicia Praetextata who married the consul of 64, Marcus Licinius Crassus Frugi.[6]
