A member of the gens Anicia, Paulinus was possibly the son of Sextus Cocceius Anicius Faustus Paulinus, the Proconsular governor of Africa Proconsularis during the 260s, and grandson of Quintus Anicius Faustus Paulinus. He was the patron of the town of Uzappa.

If he is identified as the Faustus mentioned on the Great Altar of Hercules in Rome, he served as Praetor urbanus early in his career. He was subsequently appointed suffect consul probably sometime during the AD 270s. He was then made consul posterior alongside Virius Gallus in AD 298. After serving as consul, he was appointed Praefectus Urbi of Rome, serving from AD 299 through until 1 March 300.

It is postulated that Faustus married the noblewoman Amnia Demetrias, with whom he probably had at least two sons: Amnius Anicius Julianus, Consul of Rome in 322 and Sextus Anicius Faustus Paulinus, the Roman consul of AD 325.
