1. The Commentariolum Petitionis is not in the Codex Mediceus of Cicero's correspondence with his brother Quintus, but it appears at the end of the letters to Quintus in the other manuscripts. It starts in the normal manner of a letter (QVINTVS MARCO FRATRIS. D.) and is, or purports to be, a collection of tips on canvassing set in the particular context of M. Cicero's consular candidature in 64: a composition of his brother Quintus. It is printed as no. 12 in Tyrrell and Purser's collection of Cicero's Letters.

page 249 note 4 The argument of Buecheler, F., Quinti Ciceronis Fragmenta (Leipzig, 1869), p. 39Google Scholar (note on Comm. 19), that Asconius was wrong in thinking that the In toga Candida reference was to Q. Gallius, is singularly unconvincing, and is reasonably disregarded by Mühll, Von der, R.-E. vii. 672, no. 6 (Q. Gallius).Google Scholar
