Extractions: Britannica CD Index Articles Dictionary Help (b. 55-43 BC, Assisi, Umbria [Italy]d. after 16 BC, Rome), greatest elegiac poet of ancient Rome. The first of his four books of elegies , published in 29 BC, is called Cynthia after its heroine (his mistress, whose real name was Hostia); it gained him entry into the literary circle centring on Maecenas. Very few details of the life of Sextus Propertius are known. His father died when he was still a boy, but he was given a good education by his mother. Part of the family estate was confiscated ( c. 40 BC) to satisfy the resettlement needs of the veteran troops of Octavian, later the emperor Augustus, after the civil wars. Propertius' income was thus severely diminished, though he was never really poor. With his mother, he left Umbria for Rome, and there ( c. 34 BC) he assumed the dress of manhood. Some of his friends were poets (including Ovid and Bassus), and he had no interest in politics, the law, or army life. His first love affair was with an older woman, Lycinna, but this was only a passing fancy when set beside his subsequent serious attachment to the famous "Cynthia" of his poems. The first of Propertius' four books of elegies (the second of which is divided by some editors into two) was published in 29 BC, the year in which he first met "Cynthia," its heroine. It was known as the

Some say, his father was a knight, and a man of considerable authority who, becoming a partizan with Antony , on the capture of Perusia, was made prisoner, and killed by Augustus ’s order, at the altar erected to Caesar when his estate was forfeited of course. This which happened when the poet was very young, he alludes to in one of his elegies, and laments the ruin of his family in that early season of his life. His wit and learning soon recommended him to the patronage of Maecenas and Gallus and among the poets of his time, he was very intimate with Ovid and Tibullus. We have no particular account of his life, or t%e manner of his death; only he mentions his taking a journey to Athens , probably in company with his patron Maecenas, who attended Augustus in his progress through Greece . Those that make him live the longest carry his age no higher than forty-one. His death is usually placed B. C. 10. The great object of his imitation was Callimachus Mimnermus and Philetas were two others, whom he likewise admired and followed in his elegies. Quintilian tells us, that Propertius disputed the prize with Tibullus, among the critics of his time and the younger Pliny, speaking of Passienus, an eminent and learned elegiac poet of his acquaintance, says, that this talent was hereditary and natural for that he was a descendant and countryman of Propertius. Propertius however was inferior to Tibullus in tenderness, and to
