The accuracy and consistency of his claims are more or less beside the point, as is the question of whether in fact Horace regarded Lucilius as an “enemy,” as satirists often want their targets to be construed. Lucilius is, as it happens, the kind of target that Horace often likes to develop in his satires: a person with flaws, but flaws that may not be especially monumental ones and are often forgivable. Mockery of such characters can come across as softer, less vitriolic than attacks on people with grave, unredeemable vices, its humor more accessible and less private.
4 anyway, that Horace is fully comfortable with Lucilius’ Greek comic roots after all. 10, when he claims to endorse Lucilius’ “salty wit” – a phrase that can only imply sharp, sometimes painful mockery? Is it just a matter of degree – some is good, but too much is not? What, then, would be the force of multo in the phrase sale multo ? Horace seems to be saying, in other words, that Lucilius was great because he attacked the city with so much caustic humor. The section that immediately follows, lines 7–19, muddles things even further.

Brown (1993) 182–83). 10, once again, shows Horace playfully attacking Lucilius under the guise of offering a cogent literary theory of his own. In fact – and here I would suggest, just to be clear, that this was almost certainly by design – it all ends up a little garbled, and his criticisms of Lucilius are less trenchant than his rhetoric at first might lead one to believe.
