Notes: Q. and C. Poppaeus, patrons of Interamnia Praetuttiorum, are placed according to PIR (1998) (see under P847 and stemma). However Syme: Roman Revolution
p.362 and Wiseman: New Men no.341 preferred them to be identical to Sabinus and Secundus.

Cebeillac Gervasoni: Mireille: "Un nouveau préfet de l’annone d’époque néronienne connu grâce à une inscription inédite d’Ostie : C. Poppaeus Sabinianus", 
in G. F. Paci (éd.), Epigraphai. Miscellanea epigrafica in onore di Lidio Gasperini, 2000, p.231-236 dates his prefecture to 62-68.
Demougin, Ségoulene: "Un nouveau préfet de l’annone du Ier siècle" in MEFRA Tome 115, 2003. p. 549-561 dates Sabinianus' prefecture to 62-65, since he was
not likely to survice in office after Poppaea's death. She concludes he was a relative but not close, of Poppaea II, since he was an equestrian.
