ATIA GENS, plebeian. The word is always written on coins with one t ; but in manuscripts we find both Atiius and Atius. This gens does not appear to have been of any great antiquity, and none of its members ever attained the consulship ; but, since Augustus was connected with it on his mother's side (Atia), the flattery of the poets derived its origin from Atys, the son of Alba, and father of Capys. (Virg. Aen. v. 568.) The cognomens of the Atii are Balbus, Labienus, Rufus, Varus.

The only cognomens which occur on coins are Balbus and Labienus. (Eckhel, v. p. 145.)
