Gaius Valerius Pudens was a Roman politician and general of the late 2nd - early 3rd centuries.

Valerius Pudens, a native of Cuicul, now Djémila,[1] held command in Pannonia Inferior before becoming governor of Germania Inferior. Around 202 or 203 he became governor of Roman Britain, serving until c. 206.

An inscription at Bainbridge fort records new barracks being built under his governorship, possibly in connection with recent uprisings by the Brigantes.
