Lucius Salvius Otho Titianus was the elder brother of the Roman Emperor Otho (reigned 69). As a Roman senator, he was consul in the year 52 as the colleague of Faustus Cornelius Sulla Felix,[1] and appointed consul as his brother's colleague for the period from Galba's murder to the end of February.[2] Tatianus was present at the Second Battle of Bedriacum.

Titianus was married to Cocceia, the sister of the future Roman Emperor Marcus Cocceius Nerva (reigned 96–98), with whom he had a son, Lucius Salvius Otho Cocceianus. Cocceianus rose to become consul around 80, but was later executed under orders of Emperor Domitian, for having observed his uncle Otho's birthday.[3]
