    Let’s pay homage to the greatest history geek site ever built. We can only aspire to reach such heights. Thank you Jot. BTW, here’s a link to ancientworlds.net just in case you want to check-in & see if Jot gets AW back-up again. The main challenge -in my opion- is that when replacing the old site coding one has to transfer a MASSIVE amount of material submitted by members to the new site.

    Roman citizens used the system of a triple name, the first would be the person’s forename, the second denoting their tribal allegiance and the third stating their family name.

    So Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus was a member of the Cornelli Clan, of the Family of Scipio, with the forename of Publius, with the extra addition of Africanus, this helped Publius to distinguish himself from other, non-direct family members of the Scipios.

    As Rome’s territory increased more family-clans, were added until, by 241BCE, the was 35 separate family-clans, despite a short-lived plan of 90BCE, to add another 10 family-clan-names, 35 family-clans remained as founding members of Rome, however, as the Roman Empire expanded creating new citizens, wherever they lived in the Roman Empire, these new citizens were allocated to one of the 35 family clans, the founding members of Rome, but, of course, unless they were close enough to the City of Rome to vote, the privilege of joining one of the 35 clans was just prestige only.
