Category:Gens Atilia (Nova Roma)
ATILIA GENS, patrician and plebeian. On coins the name always occurs with only one L, but in MSS. usually with two. The cognomens of the Atilii under the republic are, bulb us, Calatinus, Longus, Regulus, Serranus; and of these the Longi were undoubtedly patricians. (Dionys. xi. 61.) The first member of this gens who obtained the consulship was M. Atilius Regulus, in b. c. 335; and the Fasti contain several consuls of this name under the emperors. The only cognomen found on coins is Saranus, which appears to be the same as Serranus. (Eckhel, v. p. 146.)
Praenomina commonly used by members of this gens in ancient times were:
- Used by the Atilii Bulbi and Caiatini:
- Aulus, Gaius, Marcus.
- Used by the Atilii Reguli:
- Gaius, Lucius, Marcus.
- Used by the Atilii Serrani:
- Aulus, Gaius, Marcus, Sextus.
In modern times the most common praenomina have been Gaius and Titus. The praenomina Aulus, Spurius, Manius, Servius, Appius, Numerius, and Vibius have not been used by the Atilii in the modern era.
