M. Macrinus Vindex - Prefect of the Praetorian Guard

Vindex served during the reign of Marcus Aurelius; possibly the successor to Furius Victorinus, who died in battle in 168 C.E. during the Marcommanic Wars. He followed in Victorinus’s footsteps, for in the continued fighting he too was slain (c. 169–170). The emperor erected three statues in his honor.
