2. Q. Axius, an intimate friend of Cicero and Varro, the latter of whom has introduced him as one of the speakers in the third book of his de Re Rustica. (Comp. Cic. Att. 3.15, 4.15.) Suetonius quotes (Caes. 9) from one of Cicero's letters to Axius, and Gellius speaks (7.3) of a letter which Tiro, the freedman of Cicero, wrote to Axius, the friend of his patron. Axius wasamanof wealth, and was accustomed to lend money, if at least the Axius to whom Cicero talked of applying in B. C. 61 (ad Att. 1.12), is the same as the above. In B. C. 49, however, we find that Axius was in Cicero's debt. (ad Att. 10.11, 13, 15.)
