Acilia: The gens Acilia was a Roman family, or gens that flourished from the middle of the third century BC until at least the fifth century AD, a period of seven hundred years. It was probably of plebeian origin, and the first two branches, or stirpes to appear were certainly plebeian. The first member of the gens to achieve prominence was Gaius Acilius Glabrio, who was quaestor in 203 and tribune of the plebs in 197 BC.
