The aim of this paper is to reflect on the laudatio Porciae, an oratio scripta, written by Cicero to praise Porcia, Cato of Utica’s sister, on her son’s Domitius request and her nephew Brutus. Since there is no part of this eulogy it is only possible to suppose its contents, basing on the characteristics of the others feminine laudationes known of the I century B.C. In this way, it seems also very useful to make a comparison with a piece of a letter written by Cicero, in which he quotes the spontaneous abortion of Tertulla, Cassius’ wife and Brutus’ sister. Both Porcia and Tertulla belonged to Cato’s family and they got married with filo-republican politicians. According to this perspective, their function of trait d’union between politically famous families at the time arises, above all through maternity, making them praiseworthy.
