of Marcus Antonius Victorinus
- Marcus Antonius Victorinus was a brother of the Mithraeum of Aquincum II in Victorinus's house. He was a(n) Decurion, aedelis and duumvir.
- Active early 3rd century in Aquincum, Pannonia inferior (Pannonia).
A generous euergete, this powerful and wealthy man, the mayor of Aquincum, may have been the owner of the vast mansion that housed this mithraeum in the heart of the Roman city. He also owned a villa in Budaörs, on whose grounds other dedications have been found, including one to Mother Earth (AE 1986, 591 = AE 1995, 1273; see also the dedication to Sol AE 1962, 26).
The second Mithraeum of Aquincum was founded by Marcus Antonius Victorinus in his house in the civil part of the 2nd century Roman city of Aquincum, in Pannonia Inferior.
The size of the house and the importance of its location suggest that Marcus Antonius Victorinus was an influential person. He also dedicated a number of small altars within the same sanctuary.
Marcus Antonius Victorinus lived in Aquincum towards the end of the 2nd century and the first half of the 3rd century. His family probably came from the eastern half of the Roman Empire.
His titles include decurio, aedilis and even duumvir.
These two inscriptions appear on two statue bases of the Mithraeum II of Aquincum.
