Naso, Q. Voco'nius

the judex quaestionis in the trial of Cluentius, B. C. 66. Since Cicero in one passage calls him Q. Naso (pro Cluent. 100.53), and in another Q. Voconius (Ibid. 100.54), Garatoni and Klotz, in their notes upon Cicero's oration, make two different persons out of Q. Voconius Naso, namely Q. Voconius, the judex quaestionis, and Q. Naso, the praetor. But Madvig has shown satisfactorily (de Ascon. p. 121), that Cicero refers only to one person, the judex quaestionis, pointing out moreover that the judices quaestionum were appointed to preside in those cases which the praetors, from their limited number, could not attend to, and that accordingly a praetor and a judex quaestionis would not be in the same court. This opinion of Madvig is also adopted by Zumpt (ad Cic. Ver. p. 234). Cicero in his oration for Flaccus, B. C. 59, speaks (100.21) of Q. Naso, as having been praetor, but the year of his praetorship is unknown. (Orelli, Onom. Tull. p. 649.)
