Name of an originally Etruscan plebeian family (Etruscan form Velimna) that was significant in the early Republic. The Volumnii of the 1st cent. BC are not its descendants.

Roman nomen gentile, in its older form, Papisius (Cic. Fam. 9,21,3), from which one of the 16 old rural tribes ( tribus ) took its name. The patrician gens formed several branches at an early time (5th/4th cents.

BC or politically insignificant. The younger plebeian branch of the Carbones rose in the 2nd half of the 2nd cent. and gained notoriety…

Name of a Roman family (also often given as Vetusius; on the origin of the gens Veturia [1. 284]), for which the tribus Voturia was named [2. 42]. The Veturii played a prominent political role in various phases of the Republic: from the beginning of the Republic to the leges Liciniae Sextiae (367 BC) with the Veturii [I 3-6] Cicurini, in the time between 334 and 321 with V.

(in Greek usually Μάλλιος/ Mállios, often confused in MSS with Mallius and Manilius). Name of a Roman patrician family, probably of Etruscan origin [1. 227]. It attained an early political zenith in the 5th and 4th cents. BC with the Vulsones and Capitolini branches (continued by the Torquati).

A period of decline ended in about 260 BC wi…

In Homers ‘Ilias wohnt O. mit seiner Gattin Tethys an den Grenzen der Erde (Hom. Il. 14,200ff.) und nimmt als einziger Gott nicht an der Versammlung im Olymp teil (ebd. 20,7).

Migration

(682 words)

Author(s): Schmitt, Tassilo (Bielefeld)
[English version] bezeichnet das mehr als nur kurzfristige Verlegen des Aufenthaltes von einzelnen oder von Gruppen an einen anderen Ort. Ein einheitlicher Begriff fehlt im Alt., wo von der zugehörigen Vorstellung nur einzelne Aspekte entwickelt worden sind: Man verstand Seßhaftigkeit als Norm. Daraus ergab sich eine grundsätzliche Opposition zum Nomadentum (Nomaden), das als Antizivilisation begriffen wurde. Erscheinungen wie synoikismós und Kolonisation wurden als Konstitution, Steigerung oder Erweiterung des eigenen Kulturraumes, …

Name einer röm. patrizischen Familie, abgeleitet vom Vornamen Quintus (vergleichbar Sextus/Sextius usw.), inschr. und hsl. häufig auch Quintius. Die Herkunft der Familie ist unbekannt; für das hohe Alter spricht ihre Verbindung mit der Feier der Lupercalia (Ov. fast. 2,378, dort Quintilii) und das in diesen Zusammenhang gehörende seltene Praen. der Familie Kaeso (s. Q. [I 1]). Livius zählt sie zu den Familien, die unter König Tullus Hostilius aus Alba nach Rom einwanderten (1,32,2; Dion. Hal. 3,29,7 nennt die Quinctilii). In der Obermagistratur erscheinen die Quinctii im 5. un…

Widely occurring Roman nomen gentile derived from the numeral praenomen Octavus ('one born in the eighth month', which disappeared later, still surviving in Octavus Mamilius [2]).

Oikoumene

(939 words)

Author(s): Schmitt, Tassilo (Bielefeld)
[German version] (οἰκουμένη/ oikoumén ē, Lat. oecumene) is a participle originally referring to (γῆ, 'earth') and designating 'the inhabited part of the earth' in contrast to the uninhabited portion. The oldest preserved evidence (Xenophan. fr. 41 DK) already links the word to the collective subject 'we' ( sc. human beings) and thus relates oikoumene to a 'humankind' that is not further specified. Accordingly, the oikoumene is not only a geographic entity, but first of all a social realm established by its inhabitants' ability, at least in principle, to fo…
