T. Voltu'rcius

or VULTU'RCIUS, of Crotona, one of Catiline's conspirators, was sent by Lentulus to accompany the ambassadors of the Allobroges to Catiline. Arrested along with the ambassadors on the Mulvian bridge, and brought before the senate by Cicero, Volturcius turned informer upon obtaining the promise of pardon, and after giving his evidence was amply rewarded by the senate. (Sall. Cat. 44, 45, 47, 50 ; Cic. Cat. 3.2, 4, 4.3; Appian, App. BC 2.4.)
