Starting with an analysis of a section of Cicero’s history of Roman oratory,Brutus (167). the intention of this chapter is to throw new light on the biography and oratorical activity of C. Titius, who was active in the second century BC. First of all, the chapter aims to delineate the chronological contours of Titius’ life through the evidence gained from an examination of an extract from the Saturnalia by fifth-century AD writer Macrobius (3.16.15 s.), in which a broad fragment of Titius’ suasio legis Fanniae is presented. In the second place, the chapter offers some hypothesis on the activity of Titius as a dramatic poet.
