Dear 100 Hour Board,

My friend claims that there exists an exact date of Vergil's birth--day, month, year. I don't believe him and think that any birth date would have to be an estimate. Do you know if there's reliable information about Vergil's birthday?

A: Dear Boy,

His birthday is apparently October 15, 70 BC (the Ides of October). That date is given by a number of sources so I assume it's exact and not an estimate.
