The second wife of Cicero the orator, whom he married in B.C. 46, when he was sixty years of age and she quite young. The marriage caused great scandal, as it was generally believed that Cicero was simply in love with her fortune. The marriage proved unhappy, and Publilia was divorced by her husband in B.C. 45 (Ad Att. xii. 32; Dio Cass. xlvi. 18). See Cicero; Tullia.
