Ma'llia Gens

plebeian. This name is frequently confounded with that of Manlius; and in almost every passage where Malius occurs some authorities read Manlius. It appears, however, from ancient inscriptions and the best manuscripts, that Mallius is the correct reading in certain cases; and we can easily understand how this name, which was one of no celebrity, should be altered into the well-known one of Manlius. The only person in this gens who obtained any of the higher offices of the state was Cn. Mallius Maximus, who was consul B. C. 105. [MAXIMUS.]
