[Down to many, many emperors] [Down to PERTINAX]
The name “Vespasian” (Vespasianus) could have been an alias name that was devised from a
combination of two or more words. It could have been made from “bas”, which is short for
“royal” (basilicos) and/or “King” (basileus). And “pas” being “pac” or “pax”, meaning “peace”.
The name could indicate that (1) the person is a King or royal, and (2) it could stand for the
phrase “royal peace” - which makes a statement. A rather potent one at a time when there was
so much turmoil in the royal houses.
There are other reasons for this connection having been found and indicated, but I will have to
find those notes as well. There were a lot of things going on involving the persons who are seen
as the founders of the “Vespasian” family line. Herod Pollio was Prince of Chalcis & Titular King
of Palestine 44-48 CE.
* King Herod (The Great) was descended from the Maccabees via Eleazar Auran.
** Flavia Domitilla I was also the wife of emperor VITELLIUS.
*** Domitia Longina, the wife of Domitian was mother of TRAJAN, but Domitian was not his
father.Trajan’s father was Lucius S. Titianus, the brother of OTHO.
