This article is about a Roman family. For genus of moths, see Gabinius (moth).

The gens Gabinia was a plebeian family at Rome. Members of this gens first appear in the second century BC.[1]

Praenomina[edit]

All of the Gabinii known from historical records bore the praenomina Aulus, Publius, and possibly Gaius.[1]

Branches and cognomina[edit]

The Gabinii do not seem to have been divided into distinct stirpes. The surnames Capito, Cimber, and Sisenna are associated with individual members.[1]

Members[edit]

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