Virgil Bronze Statue
Sometime after the publication of the Eclogues. Virgil became part of the circle of Maecenas, Octavian's capable agent d'affaires who sought to counter sympathy for Antony among the leading families by rallying Roman literary figures to Octavian's side. Virgil came to know many of the other leading literary figures of the time, including Horace, in whose poetry he is often mentioned, and Varius Rufus, who later helped finish the Aeneid.
Virgil spent the ensuing years on the long didactic hexameter poem called the Georgics which he dedicated to Maecenas.
