Polla

1. The wife of D. Brutus, one of the murderers of Caesar. Cicero calls her simply Polla (ad Fam. 11.8), but we learn from a letter of Caelius (ad Fam. 8.7) that her full name was Paulla Valeria. She was a sister of the C. Valerius Triarius, who was tribune of the plebs B. C. 51, and who subsequently served in the civil war in Pompey's fleet. She divorced her husband, whose name is not mentioned, in B. C. 50, without being able to give any reason for so doing, and then married D. Brutus (ad Fam. 8.7).
