Naevia Gens

plebeian, is not mentioned in history till the time of the second Punic war, towards the close of which one of its members, Q. Naevius Matho, was praetor. None of the Naevii, however, obtained the consulship under the republic, and it was not till A. D. 30, when L. Naevius Surdinus was consul, that any of the gens was raised to this honour. The principal surnames under the republic are BALBUS and MATHO: besides these we also find the cognomens Crista, Pollio, Turpio, which are given under NAEVIUS. On coins we find the cognomens Balbus, Capella, Surdinus. (Eckhel, vol. v. p. 259.)
