Fufidius
(223 words)

Name of a plebeian family (further development of Fufius [1]), prominent in Arpinum, the home town of Cicero.

[German version]

[1] Rom. eques, 1st cent. BC

Roman equestrian, in 57 BC creditor to Apollonia in Illyria (Cic. Pis. 86). Possibly identical with the F. from whom Cicero bought a country estate in Arpinum for his brother in 54 (Ad Q. fr. 3,1,3), who appointed Cicero joint heir in 47 (Att. 11,13,3) and whom Horace attacked as a profiteer (Sat. 1,2,12-22).
