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.
