A prosopographic problem: one man, two sets of names?
Such a question concerns one Gaius Valerius Troucillus in Caesar's Bellum Gallicum 1.19 and Gaius Valerius Procillus at Bellum Gallicum 1.4<7.4> and 5<3.5>. There were of course any number of Gaii Valerii (see e.g. 1.47.4), the poet Catullus among them.
