Albinus

Albinus (a frequent Roman name, signifying whitish; Graecized Α᾿λβῖνος), a procurator of Judaea in the reign of Nero, about A.D. 62 and 63, the successor of Festus and predecessor of Florus. He was guilty of almost every kind of crime in his government, pardoning the vilest criminals for money, and shamelessly plundering the provincials (Josephus, Ant. 20, 9, 1; War, 2, 14, 1). He was perhaps identical with Luccius Albinus, procurator of Mauritania under Nero and Galba, but murdered by his subjects on the accession of Otho, A.D. 69 (Tacitus, Hist. 2, 58, 59).
