A Note on the use of the Praenomen

Classical Quarterly 34 (1):238-239 (1984)
  Copy   BIBTEX


It is recognized that Romans of the late Republic did not normally address or refer to one another by praenomen alone. Most instances in which the praenomen is used alone are easily explicable ; either the persons concerned are members of the same family, with names otherwise identical, or the praenomen itself is particularly distinctive and aristocratic.
