Sextus Pomponius was a jurist who lived during the reigns of Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius.[1] Other writers have expressed a view that the name Pomponius Sextus was shared by another jurist, although Puchta (Cursus der Institution, vol. i. p. 444) suggested the assumption of two "Pomponii" lacked reason.

He wrote a book on the law up to the time of Hadrian, known as the Enchiridion of Sextus Pomponius.[2][3]
