Most Influential Gentes of the Republic

Recommended Posts

For the period before the Lex Licina, I found another 3 consular Gentes; Aternia, Romilia and Tarpeia.

 

Well spotted! According to Broughton, each of these three 5th century BCE patricians was the sole representative of their gens for recorded magistracies throughout the period of the Republic.

Salve, Lady N!

 

For the Roman Republican period (ie, from CCXLV AUC / 509 BC to DCCXXIII AUC / 31 BC) I have been able to identify the names of 719 consuls, 130 consular tribunes and 19 decemviri.

 

If all of them are included in the Brougthon's list, then you are still going for a little more than two thousand non-consular magistracies.

 

For example, the Cornelia gens had 64 consuls, 13 consular tribunes and 1 decemvir during the aforementioned period, presumably included among the 185 magistrates listed by Brougthon.

BTW, 8 members of the first generation of Decemviri (CCCIII AUC / 451 BC) are currently absent from the Consular list at the Covernment section of UNRV (only the consuls for that year and the second generation are listed);

 

Titus Veturius Crassus Cicurinus

Gaius Iulius Iullus

Aulus Manlius Vulso

Servius Sulpicius Camerinus Cornutus

Publius Sestius Capito Vaticanus

Publius Curiatius Fistus Trigeminus

Titus Romilius Rocus Vaticanus

Spurius Postumius Albus Regillensis

Hi. Might I ask, is this fascinating discussion still alive? Are the participants still on the forum. 

Is it possible nowadays to find online the data/tables you were hoping to develop?
