Valerii

Valerii

 

an ancient Roman patrician family.

Members of the Valerii family took part in almost all the most important events of Roman history. By tradition Valerius Volusus (eighth century B.C.) was considered the ancestor of the Valerii. The family descended in several branches distinguished by nicknames, including Poplicola, Volusus, Potitus, Maximus, Levinus, Messala, and Flaccus. (Certain branches bore several of these nicknames at the same time.) The historian Valerius Antias, the writer Valerius Maximus, and the poet Valerius Flaccus were members of the Valerii family.
