Appius Annius Trebonius Gallus was a distinguished Roman senator, who was consul in AD 108, as the colleague of Marcus Appius Bradua.[1] He is mentioned in an honorific inscription at Olympia.[1]

Trebonius Gallus was born into the plebeian gens Annia.[2] His father may have been Appius Annius Gallus, one of the suffect consuls of the year 67; according to Olli Salomies, there is a consensus that his mother was probably Trebonia, a daughter of Publius Trebonius, consul suffectus in AD 53.[3] Gallus was related to the senator Marcus Annius Verus; Verus was a brother-in-law of Hadrian, and the father of Faustina the Elder, wife of Antoninus Pius and aunt of Marcus Aurelius.[2]

Gallus had a son named Appius Annius Trebonius Gallus, who was consul in 139.
