'Verginius left his beautiful young daughter Verginia in the care of her nurse', c1912 (1912). In 452 the senate of Rome appointed a commission to write down a code of law, which was led by Appius Claudius. Abusing his position of authority, Appius Claudius tried to force the daughter of a plebeian named Lucius Verginius into slavery, prompting her father to kill her. The scandal caused a popular uprising, resulting in the commission's resignation. From The Story of Rome, by Mary MacGregor. [Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1912]
