Annia Faustina ? A.D

Third wife of Elagabalus and great-granddaughter of Marcus Aurelius. Her brief marriage to Elagabalus accounts for the extreme rarity of coins bearing her name. It is unclear when she died and under what circumstances as the divorce, although no fault of her own, sent her into obscurity, if not a worse fate.
