Historical background


(43 BC)

The Petillia gens is a family of plebeian origin. Petillius Capitolinus, one of its members, who is not to be identified with the monetary triumvir, is accused of stealing the golden crown from the statue of Capitoline Jupiter. He is judged. Being a friend of Octave, he is acquitted, as Horace reports (Sat. I, 4. 24).
