Who is Octavia the Elder?

Octavia the Elder, also known as Octavia Major or Octavia Maior was the daughter of the Roman governor and senator Gaius Octavius by his first wife, Ancharia. She was also an elder half-sister to Octavia the Younger and Roman Emperor Augustus. Little is known of her life.
