Matidia the daughter of Marciana and niece of Trajan; she was the mother of Sabina, who became the wife of Hadrian. She was declared Augusta along with Plotina, by a decree of the Senate about 113. Possessing all the virtues of her mother, she equally received with her the honors of the apotheosis, under the reign of Hadrian, some say of Antoninus Pius. The coins of Matidia, like those of Plotina and Marciana, are in each metal of the highest degree of rarity, especially the sestertius. On these she is styled MATIDIA AVG F – MATIDIA AVG DIVAE MARCIANAE Filia – also DIVA MATIDIA SOCRVS.
