Fulvia

Fulvia (the name of a noble Roman family, Graecized Φουλβία), a lady of Rome who had embraced Judaism, but having been defrauded of a sum of money by a Jewish impostor, complained through her husband Saturninus to the emperor Tiberius, who thereupon proscribed the Jews from the city (Josephus, Ant. 18:3, 5). No contemporary historian notices this expulsion, and it seems to have been but of temporary and partial force, different from the later and more formal edict of Ac 18:2. SEE CLAUDIUS.
