Ablavius was the name of several different people in the ancient world. It is also the name by which those known as Ablabius were sometimes called.

Flavius Ablavius was prefect of the city, the mi­nister and favorite of Constantine I. He was murdered after the death of the latter. [Zosimus, ii. 40] He was consul in 331. There is an epigram extant attributed to him, in which the reigns of Nero and Constantine are compared. [Anth.Lat. n. 261, ed. Meyer.] Citation
