Biography of Marceleus Marianus

The cognomen, Marianus, belongs to a group Marius/-inus/-janus which seems to have been particularly common among the Mediomatrici; it appears next in popularity to the Julius, Sextus, and Primus groups. The name Marcellus or Marceleus, though less frequent, is, none the less, still popular in this area.
