Are descendants of The Roman Consul
Flavius Afranius Syagrius (floruit 369-382) was a Roman politician and administrator. He was a member of the Gallic-Roman aristocratic family of the Syagrii, which originated in Lyon. In the same years in which Flavius Afranius lived, another Syagrius is attested (he was consul in 381), but it is not always possible to distinguish the career of the two Syagrii.
In 369 he is attested as _notarius;_ in that year the Roman Emperor Valentinian I removed him from his office after a failed military operation, and Afranius dedicated himself to private life.
He continued his career under Emperor Gratian, possibly because of his friendship with the poet Ausonius. Afranius was _magister memoriae_ in 379, when a Theodorus succeeded him. However, that same year he became Proconsul of Africa. Between 18 June 380 and the spring of 382 he is attested as Praetorian prefect of Italy. In 381 he was also _praefectus urbi_ of Rome and Consul in 382.
A daughter with the rank of a _clarissima femina_ ('most illustrious woman') and her husband, named as Ferreolus, would have a son Tonantius Ferreolus, Praetorian Prefect of Gaul.
