Atzuppius 1 was the father of pope Leo III (Leo 11): Lib. Pont. 98. 1 ("Leo, natione Romanus, ex patre Atzuppio"). He was presumably a native of Rome, like his son. For the name, cf. Atzypios 1. His wife was perhaps called Elisabeth; see Beck, "Die Herkunft des Papstes Leo III", in Frühmittelalterliche Studien: Jahrbuch des Instituts fur Frühmittelalterforschung der Universität Münster III (1969), 136, reprinted in Beck, Ideen und Realitäten in Byzanz (Variorum, 1972), VII.
