LXXXVII (A III, 27)

TO ATTICUS (?AT ROME)
DYRRACHIUM (AFTER 25 JANUARY)
From your letter and from the bare facts I see that I am utterly ruined. 1 I implore you, in view of my deplorable position, to stand by my family in whatever respect they shall need your help. I shall, as you say, see you soon.


1 Perhaps he has just heard that the sitting of the senate on the 25th of January had been interrupted by Clodius's roughs. But other similar events happened, and there is no certain means of dating this note. The difficulty, as it stands, is that it implies Atticus's temporary return to Rome.
