This chapter explores the poem of Tullius Laurea from a number of angles — literary-critical, sociohistorical, archaeological, literary-theoretical — but and also addresses its most striking feature, and that is its abnormally marked connection to physical nature. It argues that ‘consecration’ of the name of Cicero is precisely what Laurea’s poem helped to achieve.

Keywords:   Cicero, Pliny the Elder, Tullius Laurea, physical nature
