The Lex Ogulnia (300 BCE) is one of the results of the long class struggle between patricians and plebeians in ancient Rome. This law was named after tribune Quintus Ogulnius Gallus. With this law the priesthoods were open to plebeians. It also increased number of pontifices from five to nine (including pontifex maximus). The first plebeian pontifex maximus (Tiberius Coruncanius) was appointed in 254 BCE. Also it demanded five augurs to be plebeian.
