Vipsania Agrippina ( / ˌ æ ɡ r ə ˈ p aɪ n ə , - ˈ p iː -/ ; 36 BC – 20 AD) was the first wife of the Emperor Tiberius . She was the daughter of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa and Pomponia Caecilia Attica , granddaughter of Titus Pomponius Atticus . [1] By marriage, she was a great-niece to Quintus Tullius Cicero .

The gens Asinia was a plebeian family at Ancient Rome , which rose to prominence during the first century BC. The first member of this gens mentioned in history is Herius Asinius , commander of the Marrucini during the Social War . The Asinii probably obtained Roman citizenship in the aftermath of this conflict, as they are mentioned at Rome within a generation, and Gaius Asinius Pollio obtained the consulship in 40 BC. [1]
