[120] Julius Secundus,1 had he lived longer, would undoubtedly have attained a great and enduring reputation. For he would have acquired, as he was actually acquiring, all that was lacking to his qualities, namely, a far greater pugnacity and a closer attention to substance as well as form.

1 Julius Secundus, a distinguished orator of the reign of Vespasian. One of the characters in the Dialogus of Tacitus.
