"Publius" was the name chosen by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay as the author of each of the eighty five Federalist Papers, published between October 1787 and August 1788 to advocate in favor of the new Constitution being drafted to replace the Articles of Confederation for governing the United States. The name honors Publius Valerius Publicola, a Roman consul who was among the founders of the Roman Republic.
