DXIII (F XIII, 20)
TO SERVIUS SULPICIUS RUFUS (IN ACHAIA)I am intimate with the physician Asciapo of Patrae. 1 I found his society very agreeable, as well as his medical skill, which I have had experience of in the illnesses of my household. He gave me every satisfaction both by his knowledge of his profession and by his kindness. I therefore commend him to you, and beg you to see that he understands that I have written cordially about him, and that my recommendation has been of great service to him. It will be doing me a great favour.
