- Scribonia, (Scribonia Caesaris) second wife of Octavian and mother of Julia the Elder (Julia Caesaris)
Sir Ronald Syme's The Augustan Aristocracy, in a brief digression in the chapter "The Junii Silani," lists some long-lived women – another proof that women (at least well to do ones), once they were past child-bearing age, seem to have done as well as or even better than men in the life expectancy department:
- Livia, "the relict of Rutilius Rufus (cos. 105), also the aunt to Livius Rufus, tribune of the plebs in 91."
- Livia Drusilla, "whose father had been a Claudius adopted by the famous and ill-starred tribune." Widow of Augustus of course.
- Junia Tertia, widow of C. Cassius the Liberator, daughter of Servilia Caepionis and half-sister of M. Brutus. "Her funeral paraded the emblems of twenty noble houses, the germane not being there: 'preafulgebant Cassius atque Brutus eo ipso quod effigies eorum non visebantur.' (Tacitus, Ann.III,76,2)." She also famously passed over the emperor in her will. (see below) *
age about 95
My own additions:
- Cornelia Scipionis Africana, mother of the Gracchi.
age about 90
- Terentia, wife of Marcus Tullius Cicero until he divorced her in 46 BCE.
- Antonia Minor, daughter of M. Antonius and Octavia, widow of Nero Claudius Drusus
age 73, but then she did commit suicide or was poisoned: "When his grandmother Antonia asked for a private interview, [Caligula] refused it except in the presence of the praefect Macro, and by such indignities and annoyances he caused her death; although some think that he also gave her poison. After she was dead, he paid her no honour, but viewed her burning pyre from his dining-room." (Suetonius, Caligula, 23.2)
I'll entertain additional names in the comments.
* [3.76] Junia too, the niece of Cato, wife of Caius Cassius and sister of Marcus Brutus, died this year, the sixty-fourth after the battle of Philippi. Her will was the theme of much popular criticism, for, with her vast wealth, after having honourably mentioned almost every nobleman by name, she passed over the emperor. Tiberius took the omission graciously and did not forbid a panegyric before the Rostra with the other customary funeral honours. The busts of twenty most illustrious families were borne in the procession, with the names of Manlius, Quinctius, and others of equal rank. But Cassius and Brutus outshone them all, from the very fact that their likenesses were not to be seen.
