or Poplicŏla, Publius Valerius. A Roman who took a prominent part in the expulsion of the Tarquins, and who was therefore elected consul with Brutus (B.C. 509) and in three other years (B.C. 508, 507, 504). He did much to secure the rights of the plebeians, and secured the passage of a law giving to every citizen who was condemned by a magistrate the right of appeal to the people. He died in B.C. 503, and was mourned for ten days by the Roman matrons (Livy, i. 58; ii. 2- 16; Dionys. iv. 67; v. 12, 40; Plut. Publ.).
