a family-name of the gens Furia, a very ancient patrician house at Rome. [FURIA GENS.] Medullia, from which the surname comes, was a Latin town very early incorporated with Rome (Dionys. A. R. 3.1
; Liv. 1.33
), and, since Medullinus appears on the Fasti in B. C. 488, only five years after the Cassian treaty of isopolity with the Latin league, this branch of the Furii was doubtless Latin. The Tullii Hostilii also were originally from Medullia. (Dionys. l.
c.; Macr. 1.6
