Gens Fonteia was a plebeian family at Rome. Members of this gens are first mentioned toward the end of the third century.

In his oration, Pro Fonteio, Cicero mentions that the Fonteii came originally from Tusculum, of which municipium it was one of the most distinguished families. The Fonteii claimed descent from Fontus, the son of Janus.
