Fabia Orestilla was the great-granddaughter of Roman emperor Antoninus Pius and the wife of subsequent emperor Gordian I. She married him probably in 192 and had two sons and a daughter. Orestilla is only mentioned in the Augustan History. Modern historians do not believe that Orestilla was the wife of emperor Gordian I and dismiss this name and her information as false, as they believe his wife was the granddaughter of Greek Sophist, consul and tutor Herodes Atticus.
