4. C. Publilius, a youth who had given himself up to slavery (as a nexus), in order to pay the debts of his father, and whose cruel treatment by the usurer, L. Papirius, so roused the indignation of the people, as to lead to the enactment, in B. C. 326, of the Lex Poetelia Papiria, which abolished imprisonment for debt in the case of the nexi (Liv. 8.28). Valerius Maximus (6.1.9) calls this youth T. Veturius.
