Frank Frost Abbott, Commentary on Selected Letters of Cicero, Cicero's Family and Friends. (search)
Cicero, and others, Nep. Att. 15. made loans to individuals and towns, Nep. Att. 8; Cic. All. 1.13.1; 16.16a.4, 5. carried on the business of a publisher, Att. 2.1.2; 12.40.1; 12.45.3. and even kept trained bands of gladiators. Att. 4.4b.2; 4.8a.2. He abstained carefully from all participation in politics, and yet was on intimate terms with members of all political parties.

The intimate friendship which existed between Atticus and Cicero had a practical as well as a sentimental basis.

Atticus died in 32 B.C. Nep. Att. 22.

With the Epistulae ad Quintum fratrem may be mentioned the Commentariolum Petitionis,Upon the authenticity of the Commentariolum Petitionis, cf. Tyrrell, vol.1.2 pp. 110-121; Hendrickson, Amer.
