Quintus Volusius Saturninus was a Roman Senator who lived in the Roman Empire in the second half of the 1st century and the first half of the 2nd century.

Saturninus was a Roman of Patrician status.[1] He was one of three known children of Quintus Volusius Saturninus and his wife Nonia Torquata; the others included Lucius Volusius Saturninus, consul of 87, and Volusia Torquata.[2]

Saturninus served as an ordinary consul in 92,[3] during the reign of Roman emperor Domitian. He contributed to the drafting of the Roman army for war with Dacia under Roman emperor Trajan and probably around 119, Saturninus became a member of the Arval Brethren. One of the consuls of 174, Quintus Volusius Flaccus Cornelianus may have been his son or grandson.
