FRL III: ORATORY, PART 1

T 1 Cic. Brut. 94

[Cicero:] fuerunt etiam in oratorum numero mediocrium L. et Sp. Mummii fratres, quorum exstant amborum orationes; simplex quidem Lucius et antiquus, Spurius autem nihilo ille quidem ornatior, sed tamen astrictior; fuit enim doctus ex disciplina Stoicorum.

24 SP. (POSTUMIUS) ALBINUS

T 1 Cic. Brut. 94

[Cicero:] multae sunt Sp. Albini orationes.

24A AP. CLAUDIUS PULCHER

Ap. Claudius Pulcher (cos. 143, censor 136 BC; RE Claudius 295) was a supporter of his son-in-law Ti. Sempronius Gracchus (34) and served on his agrarian commission (Plut. Ti. Gracch. 4, 9.1, 13.1).

T 1 Cic. Brut. 108

24A AP. CLAUDIUS PULCHER

T 1 Cicero, Brutus

[Cicero:] In the ranks of orators of moderate ability there were also the brothers L. and Sp. Mummius, from both of whom orations are extant; Lucius, certainly simple and archaic; and Spurius, in no way, in fact, more elaborate, yet more concise; for he had training from the school of the Stoics.

24 SP. (POSTUMIUS) ALBINUS

The existence of many orations by Sp. Albinus is recorded in Cicero (T 1). The orator is presumably Sp. Postumius Albinus Magnus (cos. 148 BC; RE Postumius 47).

T 1 Cicero, Brutus

[Cicero:] The orations of Sp. Albinus are numerous.

24A AP. CLAUDIUS PULCHER

In Cicero, Ap. Claudius Pulcher is described as a fluent and rather fervid speaker (T 1).

T 1 Cicero, Brutus

[Cicero:] Appius Claudius’ manner of speaking was fluent, but a little too fervid.
