Rupilius, Publius

A Roman, consul in B.C. 132, who prosecuted with the utmost vehemence all the adherents of Tib. Gracchus, who had been slain in the preceding year. As proconsul in Sicily in the following year he made various regulations for the government of the province, which were known by the name of Leges Rupiliae. Rupilius was condemned in the tribunate of C. Gracchus, B.C. 123, on account of his illegal and cruel acts in the prosecution of the friends of Tib. Gracchus.
