frater, more exactly frater patruelis, father's brother's son or first cousin (R. § 919), for which it is also used in Her.VIII. 28. Telamon and Peleus were both sons of Aeacus. The specialisation required in strictness by frater will be seen from de Fin. V. i. § 1, L. Cicero frater noster cognatione patruelis, amore germanus. So soror, ‘cousin,’ I. 351.
