"Marullinus, my grandfather, believed in the stars"

Publius Aelius Hadrianus Marullinus (c31-c91 AD), a Roman senator from Italica in southern Spain, was Hadrian's grandfather. His son, Publius Aelius Hadrianus Afer, married a noblewoman, Domitia Paulina, and had two children, Hadrian and his sister Paulina. The Historia Augusta records his interest in astrology, and his prediction of his grandson's rise to power.
