SENTIA GENS, plebeian, is not mentioned till towards the close of the republic. We find in it the cognomens Augurinus and Saturninus ; and the first member of it who obtained the con­sulship was C. Sentius Saturninus, in b.c. 19.

Some coins of the gens bear the cognomen Saturninus, and others occur without any surname. 0f the latter we give a specimen: on the obverse is the head of Pallas with ARG. PVB. and on the reverse Jupiter in a quadriga with (L.) Senti C. F. (Eckhel, vol. v. p. 305.)
