Imperial (?) slave
Biography of Successus
- Successus was a brother of the Mitreo de Cabrera de Mar.
- Active mid-2nd century in Iluro, Tarraconensis (Hispania).
The cognomen Succesus is known in Tarraco and is documented in the Caesaris family from the time of Vespasian. Elaine has no parallel in Hispania; in its masculine form it is linked to the imperial service. There is no doubt that these are two imperial slaves. The name of the owner is very widespread before the middle of the 2nd century.
