Surnames of the Claudii

Recommended Posts

What about "Caesar"? could it be consider a Caludii cognimen? emperor Claudius adopted the old Iulii cognomen even thought he was never adopted into the Iulii family and never consider himself as member of this gens.

From my article:

 

I have attempted here to list and define the various surnames used by those Claudii who served in magisterial positions during the time of the Republic...

 

:lol:

 

"Caesar" eventually became an imperial title, but during the time of the Republic it was actually an ancient praenomen first, then later a cognomen of the Julii.
