Among the scrolls of (mostly) Philodemus found at the Villa of the Papyri in Herculaneum, there is a copy of a play by the (apparently) famous-in-Rome comic playwright Caecilius Statius. I've only just recently discovered that Caecilius was the author of a quote I have always seen attributed to Cicero—for Cicero does quote him directly;
One plants trees for the benefit of another age.
I'm struggling to find much in English on this writer. In addition to the above, here are a few quotes attributed to him:
***note; I have not verified these selections***
Fear created the first gods in the world
The whole world is a man's birthplace
Grant us a brief delay; impulse in everything is but a worthless servant.
Wisdom oft lurks beneath a tattered coat.
I'm wondering whether anybody else has come across him. I know Hiram has delved deeply into Philodemus' scrolls. I'm just wondering if he should be on our radar?
