A Neapolitan courtesan, whose real name was perhaps Gratidia, beloved by Horace; but when
she deserted him he revenged himself by holding her up to contempt as an old sorceress (
Sat. i. 8
), though his famous palinode (
Carm. i. 16
), beginning O matre pulchra filia pulchrior
is thought by some to have been intended as an apology to her.
