Memmia never remarried after the death of her husband; she lives alone with her cats and peacocks and other assorted birds and a large staff of freedmen and slaves, of course at her suburban estate on the Via Tiburtina outside of the city proper. She remains close to her long-time platonic friend and confidant, Cornelius Tacitus , and often invites him to her home to share meals and conversation.

Russell argues that "by far the most plausible answer to the question 'what happened to the Ninth' is that they fought and died in Britain, disappearing in the late s or early s when the province was in disarray". It is highly unlikely that if the legion continued in existence up to the Armenian war of , no records at all later than c.
Lawrence Keppie says that "no inscriptions recording the building activities of the legion or the lives and careers of its members have come from the East", suggesting that if the legion did leave Britain, it ceased to exist very soon afterwards. He suggests that the legion may have been withdrawn from York around to take part in the war in Parthia at the end of Trajan's reign. Keppie suggests that it was the legion's absence elsewhere that encouraged a native uprising, obliging Hadrian to send the Legio VI Victrix to Britain.
