Flaccus, C. Avia'nus

was an intimate friend of Cicero's, and had two sons, C. Avianus, and M. Avianus. (Cic. Fam. 13.35, 79.) Both father and sons seem to have been engaged in the farming of the public taxes. In B. C. 52, Cicero recommended Caius, the son, to T. Titius, one of Pompey's legates, who had the management of the corn-market, in accordance with the law which had conferred the superintendence of it upon Pompey (ad Fam. 13.75), and, B. C. 47, Cicero recommends both sons to A. Allienus, the proconsul of Sicily (ad Fam. 13.79).
