29 L. SCRIBONIUS LIBO

T 1 Cicero, Brutus

[Cicero:] ...and in the same period L. Furius Philus was considered to speak Latin very well and in a more erudite manner than others ...

T 2 Cicero, On the Orator

= 20 T 6.

27+28 L. ET C. AURELII ORESTAE

Caius Aurelius Orestes (RE Aurelius 178), presumably a brother of the former. Cicero records the existence of orations by both (T 1).

T 1 Cicero, Brutus

[Cicero:] There are also [orations] of L. and C. Aurelius Orestes, who, I find, had some place among the orators.

29 L. SCRIBONIUS LIBO

L. Scribonius Libo (tr. pl. 149 BC; RE Scribonius 18) is described in Cicero as a not unskilled speaker, and there is a reference to extant speeches (T 1).

T 1 Cicero, Brutus

[Cicero:] And Libo himself as well was not, I note, an unskilled speaker, as may be gathered from his speeches.
