    The lives of Catullus and Horace overlap by a dozen years in the first century BC. Yet, though they are the undisputed masters of the lyric voice in Roman poetry, Horace directly mentions his great predecessor, Catullus, only once, and this reference has often been taken as by: Biography. Catullus came from a leading equestrian family of Verona in Cisalpine Gaul, and according to St. Jerome, he was born in the family was prominent enough for his father to entertain Caesar, then proconsul of both Gallic provinces. [1] In one of his poems Catullus describes his happy return to the family villa at Sirmio on Lake Garda near Verona.

Gaius Valerius Catullus (/ k ə ˈ t ʌ l ə s / kə-TUL-əs, Latin: [kaˈtʊllʊs]; c. 84 – c. 54 BCE) was a Latin poet of the late Roman Republic who wrote chiefly in the neoteric style of poetry, which is about personal life rather than classical heroes.
