The details (from wikipedia)


For his grandfather, the 1st-century BC consul and historian, see Gaius Asinius Pollio (consul 40 BC).

Gaius Asinius Pollio, son of Gaius Asinius Gallus and Vipsania Agrippina, was a Roman politician.

He was consul in AD 23 alongside Gaius Antistius Vetus. We know from his coins he was proconsul of Asia. Through his mother Pollio was the half-brother of the younger Drusus. In 45, Pollio was exiled as an accuser of a conspiracy and later was put to death on orders from Empress Valeria Messalina.

The Asinia Pollionis filia mentioned on an inscription from Tusculum may have been his daughter. Pollio was perhaps the father (or brother) of Gaius Asinius Placentinus (b. 25), who lived around the middle of the 1st century, and Marcus Asinius Pollio. He was the older brother of Marcus Asinius Agrippa and Asinia, the mother of Pomponia Graecina.
