n politician. Their married life proved to be a most unhappy one, and they were probably divorced towards the close of the year 46 B.C. Fam. 6.18.5. Tullia herself died in Feb., 45 B.C.,Schmidt, Briefw. p.271. and her father was plunged in the deepest grief, in which his friends Caesar, Lucceius, Sulpicius, and others sought to comfort him by letters of condolence. Att. 13.20.1; Fam. 4.5; 5.13; 5.14; Att. 12.13.1. Marcus Tullius Cicero filius. 54. Cicero's only son Marcus was born in 65 B.C. The father gave his personal attention for some time to the young man's education, and sent him later to Athens to pursue his studies, in the hope that he would take up the legal profession; but the young man's tastes were averse to study, and the appearance of Brutus at Athens, in 44 B.C., was enough to cause his enlistment in the army of the liberatores, in which he served with distinction. ad Brut. 2.3. He espoused the cause of Octavius against Antony, was made consul by the former i

no letter from Atticus. This state of things, together with the well-known fact that Atticus was a publisher, and that Cornelius Nepos says Nep. Att. 16. that such a collection of Cicero's letters, not yet published, was in the possession of Atticus, makes it almost certain that these letters were arranged for publication by him. It is probable that they were not published until after his death (32 B.C.).B├╝cheler (Rhein. Mus. 1879, p. 352) believes that they were published between 60 and 65 A.D., but his argument is not convincing. Some of the men of note upon whom Cicero had expressed unfavorable opinions were still living in 32 B.C., and the publication of these letters would therefore have been indiscreet. The books in the collection ad Att. stand in chronological order, and the letters within the books are arranged chronologically, but not with accuracy. With the Epistulae ad Quintum fratrem may be mentioned the Commentariolum Petitionis,Upon the authenticity of the Commentari
Frank Frost Abbott, Commentary on Selected Letters of Cicero, Letter I: ad Atticum 1.1 (search)
Letter I: ad Atticum 1.1 Rome, July, 65 B.C. The tenth letter of the extant correspondence; the earlier letters being Att. 1.5, 6, 7 (68 B.C.); 9, 8, 10, 11 (67 B.C.); 3, 4 (66 B.C.). The letter is interesting for the light which it throws in general upon methods of electioneering at Rome, and in particular upon Cicero's political plans and prospects a year before the elections at which he intended to be a candidate for the consulship. On the elections, cf. also Herzog, 1. pp. 654-661. Ciccf. below, more maiorum, praepropera prensatio, frontem ferias. more maiorum: to be joined closely with negatur; cf. similar expressions, Fam. 7.18.3 ego te Balbo more Romano commendabo, and Fam. 7.5.3. praepropera: Galba is canvassing in July, 65 B.C. , although the election will not take place before July, 64 B.C. cogitaramus and dicebat: epistolary tenses, representing respectively the perfect and present; cf. Intr. 84c. The statement is put in the form in which the facts would present them
Frank Frost Abbott, Commentary on Selected Letters of Cicero, Letter II: ad Atticum 1.2 (search)
Letter II: ad Atticum 1.2 Rome, the latter part of 65 B.C. The historical value of this letter springs from the fact that it fixes the date of the birth of Cicero's son (65 B.C.), that it contains the main point in the evidence with reference to C65 B.C.), that it contains the main point in the evidence with reference to Cicero's defense of Catiline against the charge of misappropriation of public money, and accounts for the absence of letters between Cicero and Atticus from 64-62 B.C. inclusive (cf. last sentence). L. Iulio Caesare C. Marcio Figulo consulibus: the the date of this letter, but the reference to the approaching trial of Catiline proves that it must have been written in 65 B.C., after the election of the new consuls, as the trial was begun and finished in that year. The brevity and apparent lack or abs te, cf. Ep. I.4 n. hoc tempore cogitamus: it will never be certainly known whether Cicero did defend Catiline in 65 B.C. or not, but this passage certainly indicates such an intention on his part, and there is no satisfactory reason for beli

iding consul in asking senators their views on the question before the senate. The rules of the Roman senate allowed a senator to depart from the special topic under consideration, and de summa republica dicere. Cf. Willems, II. 186. ille locus, etc., the following point was developed by me with telling effect. Lentulum: Catiline's fellow-conspirator, who was accused de peculatu in 60 B.C. , and at a later date underwent a similar experience. Catilinam: tried on a charge of 'repetundae' in 65 B.C. (cf. intr. to Ep. II.). He was again on trial, in 64 B.C. , for the murder of M. Marius Gratidianus. No mention is made here of the charge of incest brought in 73 B.C. against the Vestal Fabia, sister of Cicero's wife Terentia, in which Catiline was implicated. Cicero regarded the charge as unfounded, and wished, furthermore, to spare the good name of Terentia's family. immissum: properly used of wild beasts. Catiline is Compared to a wolf, Cic. in Cat. 2.2. reservarunt: Cicero address

XCVIII Cimber autem Tullius, Fam. 6 12 2 Balbi quoque Corneli, Fam 8.11.2 in Horace we read Fuscus Aristius, Musa Antonius, etc., in Livy, Gemmus Servilius, Antias Valerius, etc. In the writers of the Silver Age this innovation, like many others, was accepted without question. ambitio: e.g. in his purpose to defend Catiline in 65 B.C. ; cf. Ep. II.1. rogatu eorum: as when he defended Vatinius in 54 B.C. at the request of Caesar (Fam. 1.9.19), although he had bitterly attacked him in an oration delivered only two years before. humaniter: adverbs in -iter from adjectives in -us are peculiar in this period to colloquial Latin. In Cicero of these formations we find only naviter (Ep. XVIII. 3), firmiter, humaniter and its compounds; and these forms occur only in the Letters and in those writings to which Cicero intentionall

e dixit, ita maxime ab inimicis Caesaris collaudatur, and according to Dio Cassius 41.3 the consul Lentulus went so far as to summon them u(pecelqei=n pri\n ta\s yh/fous dienexqh=nai. The principle that the tribune could not be held responsible for his official acts seems to have been first called into question in the year 98 B.C. , in the case of C. Furius, who had been tribune in the preceding year, and similar prosecutions occurred in the years 94 B.C. , 86 B.C. , 74 B.C. , 66 B.C. , and 65 B.C. (cf. Herzog, 1.1167 ff.; Madvig, Verf. u. Verw. 1.467). The case before us would seem to have been the first instance when an attempt was made to hold a tribune accountable during his term of office. As Caesar puts it, de sua salute septimo die (of the calendar year) cogitare coguntur, B. C. 1.5. Cf. also Appian, Bell. Civ. 2.33. Cicero's words, therefore, nulla vi expulsi, while technically true, misrepresent the real state of the case. It was this infringement of the rights of the tri
