Jump to: navigation, search

The gens Attia was a plebeian family at Rome, which may be identical with the gens Atia, also sometimes spelled with a double t. The gens is known primarily from two individuals: Publius Attius Atimetus, a physician to Augustus, and another physician of the same name, who probably lived later during the first century AD, and may have been a son of the first.[1]
