In spring of 56 BC Cicero delivered a speech before the senate in which he attempted to prove that a recent earthquake prodigy arose as a result of the actions of his political opponent, Publius Clodius.  Cicero employs evidence that resembles Varro’s three different ways of treating the divine: the mythic, the civic, and the philosophical. This essay examines the intersections between Cicero’s tactics and  the so-called ‘tripartite theology’ of Varro.
