1. *foulbi/a, A Roman lady of rank, but of loose morality. She lived on terms of intimacy with Q. Curius, an accomplice of the Catilinarian conspiracy, who told her of the scheme that was afloat. As Curius had not the means of satisfying her extravagant demands upon him, she took vengeance by divulging his secret: she communicated it, among others also, to Cicero, and thus became the means of suppressing the conspiracy. (Saill. Cat. 3, 26, 28.)
