Cicero Biography

Comprehensive source for Cicero's texts, a chronology of his life, and a bibliography.

 

Cicero by Plutarch - Internet Classics Archive

Written 75 A.C.E. Translated by John Dryden

Excerpt:


IT is generally said, that Helvia, the mother of Cicero, was both well-born and lived a fair life; but of his father nothing is reported but in extremes.  For whilst some would have him the son of a fuller, and educated in that trade, others carry back the origin of his family to Tullus Attius, anillustrious king of the Volscians, who waged war not without honour against the Romans. However, he who first of that house was surnamed Cicero seems to have been a person worthy to be remembered; since those who succeeded him not only did not reject, but were fond of that name, though vulgarly made a matter of reproach. For the Latins call a vetch Cicer, and a nick or dent at the tip of his nose, which resembled the opening in a vetch, gave him the surname of Cicero.
