Consular Aviola, Clarus, Faustinus, Glabrio, Priscus, Rufus, Strabo

Republican Consuls, Tribunes with consular power, Dictators, Magister Equitum, Censors 6
Imperial Consuls and Emperors 17 incl. 0 emperors Assuming cos 54 and councillor of 82 are not the same person.
Notes: Glabrii became Patrician under Empire.
Alternative stemma at bottom where Acilius Glabrio and Acilius Aviola are one family.  The discovery of a Aviola as cos suff in 82 makes this scenario less likely.
Articles: Syme:"Superior Suffect Consuls" , in Roman Papers V, pp.494-498 on consulate of L. Acilius Rufus in 106.
Paul Gallivan: "Who Was Acilius?", in Historia: Zeitschrift für Alte Geschichte, Bd.27, 1978, pp.621-625 supports identifying Aviola cos 54 with Glabrio.
Settipani: Continuite Gentilice, p.167-178 and stemma p.198 who supports merging Glabriones and Aviolae. See also his addendum.
Monique Dondin-Payre: "Exercice du pouvoir et continuite gentilice. Les "Acilii Glabriones". Du IIIe siecle av. J.-C. au Ve siecle ap. J.-C. ", Ecole Francaise de Rome, 1993 who argues against
identifying Aviola cos 54 with Glabrio.
