MARCIA OTACILIA SEVERA, the daughter of Severus, Governor of Pannonia.  She married Philip I, the Arab, about AD 234, and bore their child, Marcus Julius Severus Philippus (Philip II) in AD 237.  Her husband was killed in battle in September of 249 and her son was killed shortly thereafter by the Praetorian Guard.  We are uncertain as to Otacilia's fate.  She was either killed with her son by the guardsmen or lived out her days in retirement.
