Natta

or NACCA, "a fuller" (Festus, s.v. Appul. Met. ix. p. 636, ed. Ouden.), was the name of a family of the Pinaria gens. Natta, or Nata, which we find upon coins, seems to be the correct orthography. The Nattae are very rarely mentioned, but appear to have been a very ancient family. Cicero speaks in general of the Pinarii Nattae as nobiles, and mentions an ancient bronze statue of a Natta, which was struck by lightning in the consulship of Torquatus and Cotta, B. C. 65. (Cic. de Div. 1.12, 2.20, 21.)
