"Sabina, at that age, was not wholly without charm"

Vibia Sabina (83-136/137 AD) was the daughter of Salonina Matidia (Trajan's neice) and Lucius Vibius Sabinus. Her marriage to Hadrian was arranged by Trajan's wife, Plotina. It was by no means a love match: the marriage was childless, and Sabina is said to have had an affair with the historian, Suetonius.
