The gens Lecania was a minor family of ancient Rome. The only member who attained the consulship was Gaius Lecanius in AD 65.

Members

  • Gaius Lecanius, consul in AD 65.
  • Quintus Lecanius Bassus, mentioned by Pliny the Elder as a contemporary who died after puncturing a carbuncle on his left hand. Possibly the same person as the consul Gaius Lecanius.
  • Lecanius, a soldier in the year of the four emperors, AD 69, and one of several persons said to have given Galba his death-blow.
  • Lecanius Areius, a Greek physician, who probably lived in or before the first century AD. Few details of his life are known, but he was quoted in at least one passage by Galen, and perhaps on several subsequent occasions, although his identification is uncertain. He may have written on the life of Hippocrates.
