or VE'CTIA GENS, plebeian, is not mentioned till the latter end of the republic, but obtained considerable eminence under the empire, where its name frequently appears in the consular Fasti.
In many editions and some MSS. of the ancient writers, the name occurs in the form of Vectius ;
is the true orthography, as we see from coins. We find coins of the Vettii of the republican period, bearing the cognomen Judex Sabinus,
a specimen of which is given under JUDEX.
