Hirpi'nus, Qui Nctius

a friend of Horace, who, according to the received titles of his poems, addressed to him an ode (Carm. 2.11), and an epistle (Epp. 1.16). In the former of these compositions he admonishes Hirpinus to relax from public cares, in the latter, if it relate to Hirpinus at all, to prefer solid to specious virtue.
