Verginius

Roman - A centurion. Father of Verginia. He was away from Rome with the army when he learned that his daughter, Verginia, had been declared a slave at the instigation of Appius Claudius who wanted her for himself. He hurried back to Rome and, when prevented by force from saving his daughter from the hands of Appius, stabbed her to death. Occasionally identified as Verginius.
