C. Va'lgius Rufus

1. Horace, in the tenth satire of his first book, composed, according to Bentley, not later than B. C. 38, where he defends and explains the criticism he had formerly passed upon Lucilius, ranks Valgius (b. 81) along with Varius, Maecenas and Virgil among those friends of genius and sound judgment whose approbation far more than compensated for the annoyance caused by the attacks of his detractors.
