Biography

The son of Aulus Platius who was praetor urbanus in 51 BC, Plautius was appointed consul suffectus in 1 BC, replacing Cossus Cornelius Lentulus Gaetulicus. It has been speculated that he may have been the Aulus Plautius who was sent to Apulia by Augustus possibly around AD 9/10, with the task of interrogating and torturing slaves for some purpose, although it is more likely that this refers to his son Aulus Plautius who may have been involved with the suppression of a slave revolt in Apulia in AD 24.

Aulus Plautius was married to Vitellia, the great-aunt of the future Roman emperor Vitellius. They had at least two sons and one daughter: Aulus Plautius (suffect consul in AD 29 and the conqueror of Britannia); Quintus Plautius, (ordinary consul of AD 36), and Plautia, who was the wife of Publius Petronius.

It is unlikely that this was the Aulus Plautius who was the proconsular governor of Cilicia et Cyprus around the year 22/20 BC; that one may possibly have been his father.
