"Terentia was seventeen, boyishly flat-chested, with a head of short, tight black curls."

Terentia (98 BC – 4 AD) was born into a wealthy plebeian family and endowed with a huge dowry, including some very good income-generating property. Terentia’s dowry passed to Cicero, but she remained responsible for the affairs of her private property with the help of her steward and guardian Philotimus. Through times of success and hardship, Terentia was a supportive wife to Cicero and a passionate activist of his cause. Click here for more information about Terentia and her life with Cicero, but be aware that this page contains many plot spoilers for Imperium and its sequels.
