Domitia - Domitia Longina. Wife of Domitian. They have two children - daughter and son whose names are unknown.

Mints: Ephesus, Rome.

Biography: Domitia Longina was the daughter of Nero's leading general Corbulo and wife of Domitian, but the later's sexual appetite was too much to get satisfied with one woman. He seduced Flavia Julia, daughter of his brother Titus and his blood niece and divorced Domitia. Domitia was later recalled, but never forgave her husband, who still might have had some affection toward her. She was thus instrumental in his assassination and might have recruited Stephanus, the ex-slave who killed Domitian.
