Flavius Julius Agricola

For other people of the same name, see Agricola (disambiguation).

Agricola, full name possibly Julius Agricola (c. 365 – after 421) was a West Roman statesman who served twice as praetorian prefect and became consul for 421.[1]


He was possibly from Gaul, specifically Narbo.[1] His relations are unclear: his exact parentage is unknown, as are his immediate descendants. He was the grandfather of Flavius Magnus, consul in 460. He may have had a son named Nymphidius. He was also a relative, and perhaps even the father, of the Emperor Avitus (r. 455–456).[1]

He served twice as praetorian prefect. The first tenure was sometime before 418, but the exact circumscription is unknown; it was most probably in the Western half of the Empire however.[1] The second time he served as praetorian prefect of Gaul in 418. He was then appointed to the consulship for 421, with Fl. Eustathius as his colleague.[2]
