Servilia and her Family

Susan Treggiari

Oxford University Press

Servilia’s only son, Brutus, was probably born in 85. By 59 he had taken the name Q. Caepio Brutus, either by adrogation or by taking the name of Servilius Caepio as a condition of inheriting. The adopter may have been Servilia’s full brother. In 58–56 he served under Cato in Cyprus. About 55 he married Claudia, daughter of the rich and influential Ap. Claudius Pulcher. He held a quaestorship (?54) and served under Claudius in Cilicia. He lent money to foreigners at usurious rates. In 49 he joined his father’s enemy Pompey.
