Caedicia (gens)

The gens Caedicia was a plebeian family at Rome. Members of this gens first came to prominence in the early decades of the Republic, but the first who obtained the consulship was Quintus Caedicius Noctua in 289 BC. The family faded from public life during the later Republic, but one of the Caedicii was known to Juvenal, who lived toward the close of the 1st century.[1][2]

The only cognomen occurring in this gens is Noctua. It seems to have been a personal cognomen, as it was not borne by later Caedicii. Other members of the gens bore no surname.[4]
