the name of a patrician family of the Cornelia gens. The family was of old date. They seem to have kept up an old fashion of wearing their arms bare, to which Horace alludes in the words cinctuti Cethegi (Ars Poet. 50); and Lucan (2.543) describes the associate of Catiline [see No. 8] thus, exsertique manus vesana Cethegi.
