Re'stio, A'ntius

2. Probably a son of the preceding, was proscribed by the triumvirs in B. C. 43, but was preserved by the fidelity of a slave, and by his means escaped to Sex. Pompeius in Sicily. (V. Max. 6.8.7; Appian, App. BC 4.43; Macrob. Sat. 1.11.)

The name of C. Antius Restio occurs on several coins, a specimen of which is annexed. On the obverse is the head of a man, and on the reverse Hercules, holding in one hand a club, and in the other a trophy, with the skin of a lion thrown across his arm. It is conjectured that the head on the obverse is that of the proposer of the sumptuary law mentioned above [No. 1], and that the coin was struck by his son [No. 2]. (Eckhel, vol. v. p. 139.)
