The gens Barbatia was a Roman family during the first century BC. It may have originated with Marcus Barbatius Philippus, a runaway slave who became a friend of Caesar, and subsequently obtained the praetorship under Marcus Antonius. In 40 BC, he was quaestor propraetore under Antonius.[1][2][3][4]
