Biography of Lucio Icilio (s. V a.C.)

Tribune of the Roman people, chosen in 493 BC claimed for the tribunes the right to convene the Senate, and did pass a law that gave the Aventine hill to the commoners, compensating the patricians by constructions which he had made. He was one of the instigators of the insurrection against the decimvir, and after the death of Virginia, led the insurgents to the sacred mountain, and forced the judges to resign power, which reestablished the Court.
