The gens Veturia, anciently called Vetusia, was a patrician family at Rome, which also had plebeian branches. The patrician branch was of great antiquity; according to tradition, one of their number, Mamurius Veturius, lived in the time of Numa Pompilius, and made the sacred ancilia. The Veturii are also mentioned in the early times of the Republic, and one of them, Publius Veturius Geminus Cicurinus, was consul in the eleventh year of the Republic, B.C. 499. The Veturii rarely occur in later times of the Republic, and after the year B.C. 206, when Lucius Veturius Philo was consul, their name disappears from the Fasti.
