MANLIA GENS, one of the most ancient and celebrated of the patrician gentes at Rome. Sub­sequently we find some plebeians of this name. This name is frequently confounded with those of Maliius and Manilius. [Mallia gens and Manilia gens.] The first member of this gens who obtained the consulship was Cn. Manlius Cincinnatus, who was consul in b. c. 480 ; and from that time down to the last century of the republic, some of its members constantly filled the higher offices of the state. The family-names of the Manlii under the republic were:Acidinus, Capitolinus, Cincinnatus, Torquatus, Vulso.

On coins the only cognomens are Torquatus and Ser.; the latter of which is variously interpreted to signify Serranus, Serratus or Sergia: the last name would indicate the Sergian tribe.
