Tiberius Claudius Paulinus

Tiberius Claudius Paulinus was a Roman general and politician of the early third century.

He was the commander of Legio II Augusta at Caerleon and then he later held two governorships in Gaul before becoming the governor of Britannia Inferior, a province of Roman Britain in 220.[1]

He was a popular man. While he was away governing Gaul, the Silures tribe set up an official inscription dedicated to him despite their usual hostility to Rome. A letter sent by him to a friend, Sennius Sollemnis, survives as do several other inscriptions. By 221, he had been succeeded in Britain by Marius Valerianus.
