and the journey to Spain like the later one with Piso (cf. § 70) may well have been on the staff of a provincial governor, - probably about 60 B.C., as the reference to Lesbia indicates (cf c. 13.11 n.). 70. The Piso unfavorably commented upon in cc. 28 and 47 (cf. § 68) is probably L. Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus, consul in 58 B.C. (the year of Cicero's exile), and in 57-55 governor of Macedonia, where he made an honorable record. After his return to Rome in 55 B.C. he attempted to reply to certain strictures of Cicero uttered in his absence, and drew down upon himself the overwhelming invective power of his adversary in the famous speech In Pisonem, in which the whole life, character, and actions of Piso were held up to undeserved obloquy. 71. The service of Catullus on the staff of C. Memmius,

An address of sympathy to Veranius and Fabullus on their return in poverty from an absence in Macedonia on the staff of Piso, the governor. This absence of theirs is not to be confounded with their earlier trip to Spain mentioned in Catul. 9.1ff. and elsewhere (cf. Intr. 68ff.).—Date, about 55 B.C. Meter, Phalaecean. Pisonis: i.e. L. Calpurnius Piso Caesonianus, on whom see Intr. 70. comites: i.e. members of the cohors, or staff, of a provincial governor; cf. Catul. 11.1; Catul. 46.9. inanis: penniless, for Piso cared only to enrich himself, and Cicero scores him for his avarice in Cic. Pis. 35.86; cf. Catul. 64.288 vacuus. aptis: i.e. accommodated to the circumstances of their bearers, as definitely explained by inanis; th

An expression of indignation that two unworthy men should have enriched themselves as members of the cohors of Piso in Macedonia (cf. Catul. 28.1ff.), while Veranius and Fabullus came back poor. With the interrogative form throughout cf. Catul. 60.1ff., and see Catul. 9.10n. —Date, about 55 B.C. (see Intr. 68). Meter, Phalaecean. Porci et Socration: otherwise unknown, though the good Roman name of the former may indicate that he was a man of some social position, while the latter, being a Greek, was perhaps one of the favorites mentioned by Cic. Pis. 27.67 Graeci stipati quini in lectis, saepe plures. sinistrae: i.e. accomplished assistants in plundering rascality; cf. Catul. 12.1n., and the familiar English expression ‘his right-hand men.’ Pisonis: see Intr. 70. <

referring to this passage, says that Berenice (whom he calls the daughter of Ptolemy Philadelphus) once saved her father's life by mounting a horse and rallying his wavering troops. But this would not have won her husband. The reference is doubtless to the story told by Justin (Just. 26.3) that Berenice's mother was opposed to her betrothal to Ptolemy, and desired to marry her rather to Demetrius, brother of Antigonus, king of Macedonia. Demetrius, however, formed a criminal connection with the mother, and was assassinated by a band of conspirators, at whose head stood Berenice, who thereby was enabled to fulfil her former engagement. coniugium = maritum; cf. Catul. 68.107; Tac. Ann. 2.13.3 matrimonia ac pecunias hostium praedae destinare . quod … alis: i.e. a deed which none other would dare, and prove him
