Old Roman nomen gentile, derived from the prename Marcus. Tradition knows of a patrician branch with the (mythical) king Ancus M. [I 3] and Cn. M. Coriolanus as its most important members. The younger members of the family (from the 3rd cent.) were plebeian without a link to the patrician Marcii being evident. Important families included the Rutili, later also the Censorini, Tremuli, Reges and Rallae. In the Late Republic the family claimed descent from the kings Ancus M. and Numa Pompilius (therefore the cognomen Rex, see M. [I 5]; RRC 346; 425; Suet. Iul. 6,1; [4. 154]) as wel…

[German version] Name of a 5th-cent. Lat. grammarian, perhaps from Narbo (Narbonne), which he refers to in his Ars ( GL 346,5; 348,35). He was either identical with or related to  Sidonius Apollinaris, curator palatii under Avitus (455-456). Of the latter C. we know that, like his father the poet and philosopher, he certainly came from Narbo; that he wrote both Latin and Greek verse; and that thanks to his outstanding knowledge of Greek he was despatched as ambassador to Constantinople (related esp. in Sid. Apoll. Carm. 23; Epist. 8,4; 9,15). The grammarian C. wrote two treatises De nomine …
