The gens Apustia was a plebeian family at Rome during the period of the Republic. The first member of this gens who obtained the consulship was Lucius Apustius Fullo, in 226 BC.[1]

Praenomina[edit]

The praenomina associated with the Apustiii included Lucius, Gaius, and Publius.[2]

Branches and cognomina[edit]

The only significant branch of the Apustia gens at Rome bore the cognomen Fullo. It was probably derived from the occupation of one of the Apustii, a cleaner of woolen cloths.[3]

Members[edit]

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