Extract

Iulia (3), only daughter of *Augustus (by *Scribonia), was born in 39 bce and betrothed in 37 to M. *Antonius Antyllus. She was brought up strictly by her father and stepmother *Livia Drusilla. In 25 she married her cousin M. *Claudius Marcellus(5) and in 21*Agrippa, to whom she bore Gaius *Iulius Caesar(3) and Lucius *Iulius Caesar(4), *Iulia(4), *Vipsania Agrippina(2), and Agrippa *Iulius Caesar (Agrippa Postumus). Her third marriage, to *Tiberius (in 11) is said to have been happy at first, but estrangement followed, and her behaviour may have contributed to Tiberius' decision to retire from Rome in 6. In 2 bce Augustus learned of her alleged adulteries (e.g. with Iullus *Antonius) and banished her to Pandateria; in 4 ce she was allowed to move to *Rhegium. Scribonia voluntarily shared her exile. Augustus forbade her burial in his mausoleum, and Tiberius kept her closely confined and stopped her allowance, so that she died of malnutrition before the end of 14 ce.
