The gens Sicinia is a family of plebeian origin from Rome. In 49, the break between Pompey and Caesar is consummated. Caesar crosses the Rubicon, "Alea Jacta est!", on January 11 and invades Italy. The Senate entrusts the defense of Rome to Pompey. Quintus Sicinius is named by the prefect of the City and mints there until Caesar seizes it.
