3. Q. Caecilius, a Roman knight, a friend of L. Lucullus, and the uncle of Atticus, acquired a large fortune by lending money on interest. The old usurer was of such a crabbed temper, that no one could put up with him except his nephew Atticus, who was in consequence adopted by him in his will, and obtained from him a fortune of ten millions of sesterces. He died in B. C. 57. (Nepos, Att. 5; Cic. Att. 1.1, 12, 2.19, 20, 3.20.)
