Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Thursday, 28 June 2018 is Gnaeus Octavius.
Gnaeus Octavius was a name used for men among the gens Octavia. Gnaeus was one of the four chief praenomina used by the Octavii, the other three being Gaius, Marcus and Lucius. The most known member was the consul in 87 BC, distant relative of Augustus through his ancestor Gnaeus Octavius Rufus.
