A Roman senator sent to France, by Julius Caesar, to help King Claudas conquer lands belonging to King Ban of Benoic (Lancelot’s father) and King Bors of Gannes.

Duke Frollo of Germany, Pontius’s cousin, was also part of the mission. Arthur and Merlin brought an army to counter the invasion, and defeated Pontius Anthony at the battle of Briosque. He returned to Rome, raised a new army, and invaded Benoic (Benwick) again. Although the attack was successful, Pontius Anthony was slain in battle by King Ban.
