Claudius Appius was a roman politician.

During his term as censor, starting in 312 BC, he built the Via Appia, an important and famous road between Rome and Capua, as well as the first aqueduct in Rome, the Aqua Appia.  He also published for the first time a list of legal procedures and the legal calendar, knowledge of which, until that time, had been reserved for the priests.

He sought support from the lower classes, allowing sons of freedmen to serve in the Senate, and extending voting privileges to men in the rural tribes who did not own land.
