Claudia Augusta (Classical Latin: [ˈklau̯dɪ.a]; January 63 – April 63) was the only daughter of the Roman Emperor Nero by his second wife Roman Empress Poppaea Sabina. She was born in Antium (Anzio) on 21 January 63.

Nero honored Claudia and her mother with the title of Augusta. Gold statues were placed in temples and circus games were held in Claudia's honor. She died four months[1] after her birth of illness. Nero and Poppaea Sabina mourned her death and Claudia was declared a goddess. A shrine and a priest were dedicated to her shortly afterward.
