Antistia (gens)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The gens Antistia, sometimes written Antestia, originally was a patrician family of Gabii.[1] In the Republican period the gens became a plebeian family at Rome, and some branches were later admitted to the Roman patriciate during the first decades of the empire (see below).

Praenomina[edit]

The oldest families of the Antistii used the praenomina Sextus, Lucius, and Marcus. In the later Republic, members of the gens also used Publius, Titus, Gaius, and Quintus. The Antistii Veteres used primarily Gaius and Lucius.

Branches and cognomina[edit]

In the earlier ages of the Republic, none of the members of the gens appear with any cognomen or surname, and even in later times they are sometimes mentioned without one. The surnames under the Republic are Labeo, Reginus, and Vetus. The latter was the greatest family of the Antistii, and held several consulships from the time of Augustus to that of Antoninus Pius.[2]

Members of the gens[edit]

This list includes abbreviated praenomina. For an explanation of this practice, see filiation.

Antistii Veteres[edit]

Members of the gens Antistia with the cognomina Vetus were admitted to the Roman patriciate by Augustus in 29.[16]
