Domitia Gens

A celebrated plebeian family, divided into two branches—that of the Calvini and that of the Ahenobarbi. The Calvini attained to the consular office B.C. 331, and the Ahenobarbi in B.C. 191. The latter, at length, in the person of Nero, became invested with imperial power; but with this emperor perished the male line of the Domitii. Domitian belonged to this family only through his mother Domitia.
