Duro'nia Gens

1. DURONIA, the mother of P. Aebutius. Her second husband was T. Sempronius Rutilus, who seems to have had a dislike to his stepson Aebutius. His mother, perhaps with a view to get rid of him m some way, wanted to get him initiated in the Bacchanalian orgies at Rome; but Aebutius betrayed the Bacchanalia to the consuls, who protected him against his mother, and Duronia was thus the cause of the discovery and suppression of those orgies, in B. C. 186. (Liv. 39.9, 11, 19.)
