C. Caepa'sius

and L. Caepa'sius, two brothers, contemporaries of the orator Hortensius, obtained the quaestorship, though they were unknown men, by means of their oratory. They were very industrious and laborious, but their oratory was of rather a rude and unpolished kind. (Cic. Brut. 69, pro Cluent. 20, 21; Julius Victor, p. 248, ed. Orelli ; Quint. Inst. 4.2.19, 6.1.41, 3.39.)
