Servius Sulpicius Galba

For other uses, see Galba (disambiguation).

Galba is an ancient Roman cognomen borne by a branch of the patrician gens Sulpicia.

The name is sometimes thought to be Celtic in origin, from a root related to Old Irish golb, "paunchy, fat."[1] Suetonius offers four possible derivations, including the Gaulish galba meaning "fat."[2]
