This chapter provides an overview of Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 BCE) as orator. It surveys the number and types of speeches he delivered throughout his career as a public speaker (81–43 BCE), their distribution and their historical and procedural contexts. The relationship between delivered and published versions is discussed as well as possible reasons for writing up speeches; it is asked what can be recovered of the original performance situations. A number of rhetorical strategies and stylistic forms are indicated by paradigmatic examples. Cicero’s relationship to his contemporaries and the link between his oratory and his public career are being considered; the role of Cicero’s personality in his speeches is looked at. Cicero emerges as an orator who is well versed in the rules of the rhetorical handbooks, but is confident enough to develop his own styles and structures according to the respective contexts and who, partly due to his own publicity campaign, soon acquired the status of an exemplary orator.
