Sicca

a friend of Cicero, who took refuge at his estate at Vibo, in the country of the Bruttii, when he left Rome in B. C. 58. Here he received intelligence of his banishment, and forthwith set out for Brundisium, where he expected to meet Sicca, but was disappointed, as Sicca had left Brundisium before he arrived there. (Cic. Att. 3.2, 4, ad Fam. 14.4.6). Plutarch (Cic. 32) appears to refer to the same person, but calls him Οὐίριος Σικελὸς ἀνήρ, "Vibius, a Sicilian," as if he had mistaken the name Sicca ; but he relates that this Vibius refused Cicero hospitality at Vibo. Sicca is next mentioned at the breaking out of the civil war in B. C. 49, when L. Domitius sent him with a letter and orders to Pompey. In B. C. 44 Cicero again took refuge in Sicca's house at Vibo. (Cic. Att. 8.12, c. 12.23, 14.19, 16.6, 11.)
