He was a friend of Catullus, who dedicates his poems to him (I.3), Cicero and Titus Pomponius Atticus.

- Cornelius Nepos

His friends there included the poets Licinius Calvus, and Helvius Cinna, Quintus Hortensius (son of the orator and rival of Cicero) and the biographer Cornelius Nepos, to whom Catullus dedicated a libellus of poems, the relation of which to the extant collection remains a matter of debate.
