Teaching, Terence and Another Cicero

Today in "Patriarchal Conventions and Convictions in Greece and Rome" we devote another day to Cicero -- but this time it's his brother Quintus we're hearing from, the Commentariolum Petitionis, his delightfully scathing advice for his famous brother as he seeks election as consul of Rome. We also take up Terence's Eunuchus, a comedy less funny than, but quite as fascinating as, a Euripidean war refugee tragedy. Knock wood, the cold seems to be in eclipse.
