Romans who were members of gens Aurelia. Under the Republic, and in the early years of the Empire, all Romans with the nomen Aurelius were members of this family. The name came to be adopted by freedmen of the family and individuals enfranchised by members of the family, and passed on to their descendants. By far the largest number were enrolled into this gens was as the result of the Constitutio Antoniniana, enacted by the emperor Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Augustus, better known as Caracalla, who made almost all inhabitants of the Empire citizens and enrolled them into the gens. By the fourth century AD, it cannot be determined whether most of the persons named Aurelius were connected in any way with the Aurelii of the Republic; but they are included here for convenience.
