House Porcii

History

Porcius (fem. Porcia) was the nomen of the gens Porcii, who apparently originated in Tusculum [1].

The gens was divided into three families during the republic, bearing the cognomens Laeca, Licinus and Cato. The most well-known line is the Cato cognomen, who were descended from Marcus Porcius Cato (Cato the Elder).
