Caecilius& his family Lucius Caecilius Iucundus and his family lived in Italy during the 1st century AD in Pompeii. He was a rich Pompeian banker &
businessman. When archeologists excavated his house, they discovered his accounts in a strongbox; these documents tell about his business dealings.
153 documents in the form of tax tablets were found in his house. They included receipts, contracts and loan documents. He inherited some of his money, but
made most of it through business activities. He dealt in slaves, cloth, timber, & property, ran a dyeing business, raised sheep & cattle, & had a contract for collecting local
taxes. Caecilius ROMAN NAMES A male Roman citizen usually had 3 names.
Praenomen-Lucius-personal name Nomen-Caecilius-name of the clan or the group of families to which he belonged Cognomen-Iucundus name of his own family and
close relatives. It is often descriptive. Iucundus means pleasant. Roman names Slaves usually had only one name. If their owner freed
them (which was common), they became freedmen, and they usually took the praenomen and nomen of their master, using their old name as their cognomen. For example, if Caecilius freed his slave Grumio, Grumio would probablly be Lucius Caecilius Grumio.
Girls and women usually had a feminine form of their fathers Nomen. For example, all the daughters of Caecilius would have been named Caecilia. If there were more than one, they would have been Caecilia Prima, Caecilia Secunda, etc.
