Quintus horatius flaccus is a character in the oxford latin course books. he is a homosexual boy growing up in italy and descovered his sexual orientation when he and his friend gaius 'exercised themselves in the field' although this is incomplete without the picture. The book follows the story of young quintus and his family, including his father Flaccus, mother Scintilla, sister Horatia, and the dog, Argus. The book is known for its interesting cartoons, where you cant tell if any of the characters are a boy or a girl. Seeing these awful cartoons makes my day.
