P. Turu'lius

or TURU'LLIUS, one of Caesar's assassins, was quaestor of Cassius Longinus in B. C. 43, and received the command of the fleet which had been raised by Tillius Cimber in Bithynia. After the battle of Philippi, in B. C. 42, Turulius joined Cassius Parmensis, and subsequently took refuge with Antony, with whom he lived on intimate terms. In order to please Octavian, Turulius was surrendered to him by Antony after the battle of Actium, and was put to death by order of Octavian in the island of Cos that he might appear to offer satisfaction to Aesculapius, the trees of whose sacred grove he had previously cut down for the use of Antony's navy. (Cic. Fam. 12.13; Appian, App. BC 5.2; D. C. 51.8 ; V. Max. 1.1.19.)
