Titus Sextius Africanus was a Roman senator who was deterred by Agrippina the Younger from marrying Junia Silana.[1] He served as a suffect consul in 59 AD.[2] In 62 AD, he took the census in the provinces of Gaul, together with Quintus Volusius Saturninus and Marcus Trebellius Maximus. Saturninus and Africanus were rivals, and both hated Trebellius, who took advantage of their rivalry to get the better of them.[3] His name occurs in a fragment of the Fratres Arvales.[4] Titus Sextius Cornelius Africanus, who served as a consul with Trajan in 112 AD, was related to Africanus.
