DXCIII (A XII, 47.3, 48.1)

YES, go on to publish Hirtius's book. As to Philotimus, I think the same as you do. I can see that the market value of your house will go up with Caesar for a neighbour. 1 I am expecting my letter-carrier today: he will give me news of Pilia and Attica. I can easily believe that you are glad to be at home. But I should like to know how much you have still to do, or whether you have finished by this time. I expect you at Tusculum, and the more because you wrote word to Tiro that you were coming, and added that you thought it necessary.

1 That is, a statue of Caesar in the temple of Quirinus on the Quirinal (Dio, 47, 45). The house of Atticus was on the Quirinal, near the temple of Salus. See vol. i., p.187 [A IV, 11].
