Notes: The republican Anicii come from Praeneste. The imperial Anicii seem not to be connected to them. 
Since the Anicii family from c.200 directly continues after 284 I hve chosen to continue the stemma beyond 284 to the 6th century. Please note that scholars disagree
with the descent. The version chosen below does not claim to be the truth. I have added an alternative stemma at bottom, but variations are plentiful.
