Probus was a member of the "Petronii Probi", a family of the senatorial aristocracy. His son Petronius Probianus was consul in 322, and his grand-daughter was the poet Faltonia Proba.
Probianus was a member of the "Petronii Probi", a family of the senatorial aristocracy. He was the son of Pompeius Probus, consul in 310, the father of Petronius Probinus, consul in 341, and of the poet Faltonia Betitia Proba, the grandfather of Sextus Petronius Probus, consul in 371.

Volusianus was the son of a Roman citizen also with the "praenomen" 'Lucius' of the Petronii clan. His Roman voting Tribe was the Sabatinae. Sabatina was a district in Etruria; thus it is likely that the family was of Etruscan origin. Volusianus’s patronage of Arezzo in later life does not necessarily mean that he was born there, but it does indicate some strong regional connection.
Proba's father was Quintus Clodius Hermogenianus Olybrius (consul in 379); the famous poet Faltonia Betitia Proba was a relative. She married Sextus Petronius Probus (consul in 371), and had three sons - Anicius Hermogenianus Olybrius and Anicius Probinus, joint consuls in 395, and Anicius Petronius Probus consul in 406 - and one daughter, Anicia Proba. Her son Olybrius married Anicia Iuliana, and his daughter Demetrias was Proba's granddaughter. She was related to the aristocratic families of the "Petronii", "Olybrii" and "Anicii"; in two inscriptions dating to 395 she is described as daughter, wife and mother of consuls.
Proba belonged to an influential family of the 4th century, the "Petronii Probi". Her father was Petronius Probianus, Roman consul in 322, while her mother was probably called Demetria. She had a brother, Petronius Probinus, appointed consul in 341; also her grandfather, Pompeius Probus, had been a consul, in 310. Proba married Clodius Celsinus Adelphus, "praefectus urbi" of Rome in 351, thus creating a bond with the powerful "gens" Anicia. They had at least two sons, Quintus Clodius Hermogenianus Olybrius and Faltonius Probus Alypius, who became high imperial officers. She also had a granddaughter Anicia Faltonia Proba, daughter of Olybrius and Tirrania Anicia Juliana.
It is possible that, as an Etruscan of equestrian rank - see below - Volusianus had social connections with powerful senatorial families of Etruscan provenance two of which achieved Imperial status in the mid-Third Century AD. This would go some way to explain the extraordinary momentum of his career from the early 250s AD onward. The Treboniani (the family of the Emperor Trebonianus Gallus) and the Licinii (the family of the Emperors Valerian and Gallienus) have both been suggested in this connection. It seems agreed that a connection between these families and the Petronii Volusiani based on a common regional origin is not impossible, but that a blood-relationship is unlikely.
The Liberal triumph of 1820 opened Spain to him once more, but he was coldly received by the revolutionary party. He died at Madrid shortly before February 26, 1821. The interest of his voluminous writings is almost wholly ephemeral, but they are excellent specimens of trenchant journalism. His "Fragmentum Petronii" (Basel, 1800), which purports to reconstruct missing passages in the current text of Petronius's "Satyricon", is a testimony to Marchena's fine scholarship; but, by the irony of fate, Marchena is best known by his "Ode to Christ Crucified", which breathes a spirit of profound and tender piety.
José Marchena Ruiz de Cueto, a Spaniard, was at Basle in 1800, attached to the staff of the French general Moreau. In his spare time he wrote scholarly notes on ancient sexuality, and eventually constructed a supplement to Petronius which illustrated his researches. He translated the fragment into French, attached the notes, and published the book as "Fragmentum Petronii" (Paris? 1800), claiming that the fragment was by Petronius and the translation and notes were by a certain "Lallemand", a Doctor of Theology. In Marchena's preface, dedicated to the Napoleonic Army of the Rhine, he states that he found the fragment in a manuscript of the work of Saint Gennadios on the Duties of Priests; close examination had revealed that it was a palimpsest and that this fragment formed the underlying text.
Yet, even after the Claudii are wiped out, it is deduced that the Claudii may have had a fifth brother who could be a co-perpetrator. The identity of this fifth brother and his connections to Falco, his friends, and the imperial government are finally deduced; Falco and Petronius realise that Anacrites has been manipulating them all along. However, the Didii, Camilli (Falco's in-laws) and Petronii families realise that they know too much and that their lives (and possibly even the ruling Flavians) are now potentially threatened by this missing brother. Forced to make a difficult decision, Falco and Petronius finally decide to take matters into their hands, conspiring to "send Nemesis to deal with him" once and for all, ending the novel and the series so far in a cliffhanger.
