Roman consul in company accepting cooked rice (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cicero

'roman consul' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'company accepting cooked rice' is the wordplay.
'company' becomes 'co' (abbreviation).
'accepting' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'cooked' indicates anagramming the letters.
'rice' with letters rearranged gives 'icer'.
'co' enclosing 'icer' is 'CICERO'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for cicero that I've seen before include "accomplished orator", "Philosopher", "Roman orator and master of prose", "Marcus Tullius -, Roman consul, orator and writer", "wartime spy".)
