This leaves out the considerable body of scholars (especially Mary Beard) who think that Marcus does not, in fact, equal M. Tullius Cicero in any substantive way. I'd refer you to the article in question, but my citation is in my other desk.
Happened to be looking at this issue recently. The appropriate references are:
Cicero and Divination: The Formation of a Latin Discourse Mary Beard, Journal of Roman Studies, Vol. 76, 1986 (1986) , pp. 33-46
Cicero for and against Divination, Malcolm Schofield, Journal of Roman Studies, Vol. 76, 1986 (1986) , pp. 47-65 Zeusnoos 19:22, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
The tag isn't appropriate for what you're suggesting; it's not the "factual accuracy" of the article that's in question, it's the interpretation of it. I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you (or Mary Beard, for that matter), I'm just saying that the tag is misleading. By all means include another section; I'm no expert on Roman philosophy, I just happened to be reading this a couple of years ago in Latin. --CaesarGJ 08:35, 20 December 2006 (UTC)
