Herennia Etruscilla (Augusta July 249 - April/August AD 253?)

Herennia Etruscilla was the wife of Trajan Decius and mother of Herennia Etruscus and Hostilian. As with most third century Roman empresses, very little about her is known. She lived to sink into obscurity after her husband and sons perished. She probably retained the title of Augusta under Trebonianus Gallus and coins may have been struck for her as late as AD 253.
