The gens Caepasia was a Roman family during the late Republic. It is best known from two brothers, Gaius and Lucius Hortensius, who obtained the quaestorship through their oratory. Cicero describes them as contemporaries of the orator Quintus Hortensius, and says that they were very industrious, although their oratory was somewhat rude and unpolished.
