Biography

Claudianus is a libertus or descends from the Arrii-family, to which belonged also the Emperor Antoninus Pius of mother's side. 'Si Claudianus n'a pas dû son nom illustre à un affranchissement, on supposera avec une grande vraisemblance que le gens Arria possedait sous les Antonins la maison de l'époque d'Auguste' (Cumont). Dr C. C. van Essen however, draws my attention to the fact that the house was built on the layers of the fire of Nero.
