The gens Betucia was a Roman family during the late Republic. It is best known as a result of the orator, Titus Betucius Barrus, a native of Asculum in Picenum. Cicero described him as the most eloquent of all orators outside of Rome. He also delivered a famous speech at Rome against Quintus Servilius Caepio, who perished during the Social War.[1][2]
