 Quintus Horatius Flaccus : Opera
Augustus bood hem ook het ambt van secretaris aan, zoals blijkt uit dit schrijven aan Maecenas: Voorheen was ik zelf in staat de brieven aan mijn vrienden te schrijven: maar nu ik het zeer druk heb en niet erg sterk ben, wil ik graag onze Horatius bij jou weghalen.
Zelfs toen Horatius weigerde, werd hij niet boos op hem of hield hij op hem zijn vriendschap te betuigen.
Horatius is geboren op 8 december, toen L. Cotta en L. Torquatus consul waren [65 v.Chr.], en overleed op 27 november, in het jaar dat C. Marcius Censorinus en C. Asinius Gallus consul waren [8 v.Chr.], negenenvijftig dagen na de dood van Maecenas, in zijn zevenenvijftigste levensjaar.
