Descrizione: [APh] [Comment] At sat. 1, 6, 24-29 and 107-109 Horace gives a certain Tillius a prominent role as the personification of political ambition. This person may be L. Tillius Cimber (Seneca, epist. 83, 12 ; Cicero, fam. 6, 12, 2), one of the assassins of Caesar. The phrase « sumere depositum clauum » (25) can mean that Tillius reconsidered his decision to lay aside the « latus clauus » and chose again to pursue a political career. Tillius' career is the antithesis of the picture that Horace presents of himself.
