Gaius Nautius Rutilus was the senior consul of the Roman Republic in 475 BC, with Publius Valerius Poplicola . He held the consulship a second time in 458 BC with Lucius Minucius Esquilinus Augurinus. During this consulship, he successfully carried on war against the Sabines. In the same year, the Aequi attacked the allied city of Tusculum and defeated his colleague, Minucius. Nautius Rutilus returned to Rome to oversee that the Roman Senate elected a dictator, Cincinnatus, to deal with the invaders.

He was the son of Spurius Nautius Rutilus, the consul of 488 BC.
