de [gap in text] commodis: a commission of ten was appointed by the senate to divide lands among the veterans of D. Brutus and Octavius (cf. Fam. 11.21.2, 5), and probably the troops of Plancus were similarly favored. Cicero apparently proposed the measure and was a member of the commission. On de, cf. Intr. 91 and Ep. XC.8n.
novissime : cf. novissima, Ep. LXXXVI.3n.
omni omnium: the so-called figura etymologica, of which one of the most striking cases is optumo optume optumam operam das, Plaut. Amph. 278; cf. also occidione occisum, Ep. XXXIV.7n. Combinations of various forms of omnis are special favorites.
