Flavian

 

a dynasty of Roman emperors who ruled from A.D. 69 to 96; the founder of the dynasty was Titus Flavius Vespasianus (ruled 69–79). The dynasty also included Vespasian’s sons Titus (79–81) and Domitian (81–96). (SeeDOMITIAN.)

Under the Flavian dynasty, many members of the provincial aristocracy were admitted to the Senate and the equestrian class. The Flavians extended the rights of Roman and Latin citizenship to the provincials on a larger scale than their predecessors, such as the Julians and the Claudians, which expanded the social base of the imperial power. The policies implemented by the Flavians reflected the interests of the provincial aristocracy, which in a number of instances displeased the Senate.
