Catullus 58b is a poem written by the Roman poet Catullus (ca. 84 BC – ca. 54 BC). In this poem he tells that he would be wearied of searching for his friend, the Camerius of Catullus 55 no matter what. The meter is hendecasyllabic, the same as Catullus 55. There is debate as to the provenance of the poem. Some scholars have tried to tie it to Catullus 55, though the only connection may be that the writer chose to cut it out of 55. Others believe that it was an earlier draft of the poem. Still others feel it was a separate poem entirely and that it stands well as such. A discarded view is that Catullus did not write 58B.
