3. The daughter of T. Pomponius Atticus. She is also called Caecilia, because her father was adopted by Q. Caecilius, and likewise Attica. She was born in B. C. 51, after Cicero had left Italy for Cilicia. She is frequently mentioned in Cicero's letters to Atticus, and seems at an early age to have given promise of future excellence. She was still quite young when she was married to M. Vipsanius Agrippa. The marriage was negotiated by M. Antony, the triumvir, probably in B. C. 36. She was afterwards suspected of improper intercourse with the grammarian Q. Caecilius Epirota, a freedman of her father, who instructed her. Her subsequent history is not known. Her husband Agrippa married Marcella in B. C. 28, and accordingly she must either have died or been divorced from her husband before that year. Her daughter Vipsania Agrippina married Tiberius, the successor of Augustus. (Cic. Att. 5.19, 6.1, 2, 5, 7.2, et alibi; Corn. Nep. Att. 12 ; Suet. Tib. 7, de Illustr. Gramm. 16.)
