Sed feram, ut potero; sit modo annuum. Si prorogatur, actum est." Epist. ad Atticum, lib. v. 15.

The Romans had had many reasons for mistrusting their great enemy, the Carthaginians, and they used this expression, Fides Punica, which we have simply borrowed from the Latin. The Romans used the word sal, or "salt," in this sense of wit, and their expression sal Atticum shows the high opinion they had of the Athenians, from whom, indeed, they learned much in art and in literature.

He twice gives the work this name, in Laelius 4 and Att. 14, 21, 1. In the former passage he adds the descriptive words, addressed to Atticus, qui est scriptus ad te de senectute. In a third notice, De Div. 2, 3, he gives the description without the title, liber is quem ad nostrum Atticum de senectute misimus.

I am more afraid of that than of the chatter of my contemporaries." So Cicero meditated, thinking as usual of himself first and of his duty afterward the fatalest of all courses then and always.

Ad Atticum, i. 16.
