4. M. Tullius
, on whose behalf Cicero spoke in B. C. 71.
It is quite uncertain who this M. Tullius was.
He was not a freedman, as appears from Cicero's speech, but it is equally clear that he was a different person both from M. Tullius Decula, consul B. C. 81. and from M. Tullius Albinovanus.
The fragments of Cicero's speech for Tullius were published for the first time from a palimpsest manuscript by Angelo Mai.
An analysis of it is given by Drumann. (Geschichte Roms,
vol. v. p. 2.58, foil.)
