A'xia Gens

plebeian, of which very little is known, as there are only two or three persons of this name mentioned by ancient writers. There is a coin of this gens bearing on the obverse the cognomen Naso, and on the reverse the inscription L. Axsius L. F. (Eckhel, v. p. 148); Axsius being instead of Axius, in the same way as we find Maxsumus for Maxumus and Alexsandrea for Alexandrea. We do not know who this L. Axsius Naso was; as the Axii mentioned by ancient writers have no cognomen. [AXIUS.]
