Faustina was given the title of Augusta on the birth of her first child in 146 AD. She gained quite a reputation for adultery reportedly taking many lovers including gladiators. As such, one rumor proposed that their son Commodus, who loved playing a gladiator, was in fact a child of one of her many affairs. Shipping in the UK £5 USA £10 email steveosbornocs@hotmail.com
