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
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.]
