Headword: *)api/kios *ma/rkos
Adler number: alpha,3213
Translated headword: Marcus Apicius
Vetting Status: high
[He] whose name has a great reputation for prodigality and extravagance and indolence of life and general depravity. Junius Blaesus and Lucius were the two consuls.[1] When Blaesus was invited to the feast, he brought with him Asconius Pedianus[2] like an uninvited follower,[3] for it was permitted to invite additionally certain extra guests like shadows of oneself. And [so] Apicius had to spend his substance both for friends and strangers. I have heard that to this banquet came also one Isidore by name, one of those who pass their whole time in the palaestra, already an old man and of great age, being 91 years old, firm and stout of limb, deep-chested, noble in the arms and the hands, sharp-sighted and keen of hearing, so that one would not believe he was more than 60 years old; in bouts of the wine-cup he competed in drinking with the young, and moreover he strove in eating-contests and drinking-contests and acted like a young man. They say that he was defeated in one respect: he left sooner than his fellow-banqueter. Other old men spoke on his skill in the palaestra and especially Junius Blaesus. And when he said this, he says he was 60 years old. I have heard that Servilius the consul[4] was long-lived; for he lived 90 years and in every way, reportedly, his body was without suffering. And indeed he preserved all his senses in enviable and impressive possession.
