An important and influential descent group of Tarquinia and Tuscania (in the territory of Tarquinia). In Tarquinia, the family is prominent from the fourth century BC through to the first century BC. In Tuscania, the family is known for its tombs at Madonna dell’Olivo and for a similar duration from about 340 BC to the early first century BC. Like many families, they increased their power by a combination of intermarriage and enlarged landownership. There is some evidence that some female members of the family married into families in Chiusi and Perugia. Some Roman magistrates also had the same name.
