Page  [unnumbered] Ourxebs' $etits of Latin StooI ooa&s. PUBLISHED BY CROCKER AND BREWSTER, 47 WASHINGTON STREET, BOSTON. THE LATIN SCHOOL BOOKS prepared by Prof. E. A. AsDREWS, exclnsive of his' Latin-English Lexicon, founded on the Latin-German Lexicon of Dr. Freund, constitute two distinct series, adapted to different and distinct purposes. The basis of the First Series is Andrews' First Latin Book; of the Second, Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar. FIRST SERIES. This Series is designed expressly for those who commence the study of Latin at a very early age, and for such as intend to pursue it to a limited extent only, or merely as subsidiary to the acquisition of a good English education. It consists of the following works, viz.:1. Andrews' First Latin Book or Progressive Lessons in Reading and Writing Latin. This small volume contains most of the leading principles and grammatical forms of the Latin language, and, by the logical precision of its rules and definitions, is admirably ftted to serve as an introduction to the study of general grammar. The work is divided into lessons of convenient length, which are so arranged that the student will, in all cases, be prepared to enter upon the study of each successive lesson, by possessing a thorough knowledge of those which preceded it. The lessons generally consist of three parts:-lst. The statement of important principles in the form of rules or definitions, or the exhibition of orthographical or etymological forms; 2d. Exercises, designed to illustrate such principles- or forms; and 3d. Questions, intended to assist the student in preparing his lesson. In addition to the grammatical lessons contained in this volume, a few pages of Reading Lessons are annexed, and these are followed by a Dictionary comprising all the Latin words contained in the work. This book is adapted to the use of all schools above the grade'of primary schools, including also Academies and Female Seminaries. It is prepared in such a manner that it can be used with little difficulty by any intelligent parent or teacher, with no previous knowledge of the language. 2. The Latin Reader, with a Dictionary and Notes, containing explanations of difficult idioms, and numerous references to the Lessons contained in the First Latin Book. 3. The Viri Romae, with a Dictionary and Notes, referring, like those of the Reader, to the First Latin Book. This series of three small volumes, if faithfully studied according to the directions contained in them will not only render the student a very tolerable proficient in the principles of the Latin language and in the knowledge of its roots, from which so many words of his English language are derived, but will constitute the best preparation for a thorough' study of the English grammar. SECOND SERIES. NoTE.-The " Latin Reader" and the " Viri Romme," in this series, are the same as in the first series. This Series is designed more especially for those who are intending to become thoroughly acquainted with the Latin language, and with the principal classical authors of that language. It consists of the following works:1. Latin Lessons. This small volume is designed for the younger classes of Latin students, who intend ultimately to take up the larger Grammar, but to whom that work would, at first, appear too formidable. It contains the prominent principles of Latin grammar, expressed in the same language as in the larger Grammar, and likewise Reading and Writing Lessons, with a Dictionary of the Latin words and phrases occurring in the Lessons. 1

Page  [unnumbered] NEW SERIES OF LATIN SCHOOL BOOKS. 2. Latin Grammar. Revised, with Corrections and Additions. A Grammar of the Latin Language, for the use of Schools and Colleges. By Professors E. A. ANDREWS and S. STODDARD. This work, which for many years has been the text-book in the department of Latin Grammar, claims the merit of having first introduced into the schools of this country the subject of grammatical analysis, which now occupies a conspicuous place in so many grammars of the English language. More than twenty years have elapsed since the first publication of this Grammar, and it is hardly necessary to say that its merits-placing it in a practical view, preeminently above every other Latin -Grammar-have been so fully appreciated that it has been adopted as a Text Book in nearly every College and Seminary in the country. The present edition has not only been thoroughly revised and corrected (two years of continuous labor having been devoted to its careful revision and to the purpose of rendering it conformable in all respects to the advanced position which it aims to o(cupy,) but it contains at least one third more matter than the previous editions. To unite the acknowledged excellencies of the older English manuals, and of the more recent German grammars, was the splecial aim of the authors of this work; and to this end particular attention was directed:-1st. To the preparation of more extended rulesfor the pronunciation of the.language; 2d. To a clear e.pition of its inflectional changes; 3d. To a proper basis of its syntax; and 4th. To qreater precision in rules and definitions. 3. Questions on the Grammar. This little volume is intended to aid the student in preparing his lessons, and the teacher in conducting his recitations. 4. A Synopsis of Latin Grammar, comprising the Latin Paradigms, and the Principal Rules of Latin Etymology and Syntax. The few pages composing this work contain those portions of the Graimnar to which the student has occasion to refer most frequently in the preparation of his daily lessons. 5. Latin Reader. The Reader, by means of two separate and distinct sets of notes is equally adapted for use in connection either with the First Latin Book or the Latin Grammar. 6. Viri Romse. This volume, like the Reader, is furnished with notes and references, both to the First Latin Book and to the Latin Grammar. The principal difference in the two sets of notes found in each of these volumes consists in the somewhat greater fulness of those which belong to the smaller series. 7. Latin Exercises. This work contains exercises in every department of the Latin Grammar, and is so arranged that it may be studied in connection with the Grammar through every stage of the preparatory course. It is designed to prepare the way for original composition in the Latin language, both in prose and verse. 8. A Key to Latin Exercises. This Key, in which all the exercises in the preceding volume are fully corrected, is intended'for the use of teachers only. 9. Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War, with a Dictionary and Notes. The text of this edition of Caesar has been formed by reference to the best German editions. The Notes are principally grammatical. The Dictionary, which, like all the others in the series, was prepared with great labor, contains the usual significations of the words, together with an explanation of all such phrases as might otherwise perplex the student. 10. Sallust. Sallust's Jugurthine War and Conspiracy of Cataline, with a Dictionary and Notes. The text of this work, which was based upon that of Cortius, has been modified by reference to the best modern editions, especially by those of Kritz and Geriach; and its orthography is, in 2

Page  [unnumbered] NEW SERIES OF LATIN SCHOOL BOOKS. general, conformed to that of Pottier and Planche. The Dictionaries of Caesar and Sallust connected with this series are original works, and, in connection with the Notes in each volume~ furnish a very complete and satisfactory apparatus for the study of these two authors. 11. Ovid. Selections from the Metamorphoses and Heroides of Ovid, with Notes, Grammatical References, and Exercises in Scanning. These selections from Ovid are designed as an introduction to Latin poetry. They are accompanied with numerous brief notes explanatory of difficult phrases, of obscure historical or mythological allusions, and especially of grammatical difficulties. To these are added such Exercises in Scanning as serve fully to introduce the student to a knowledge of Latin prosody, and especially of the structure and laws of hexameter and pentameter verse. In announcing the Revised Edition of ANDREWS AND STODDARD'S LATIN GRAMMAR, the Publishers believe it to be quite unnecessary to speak of the merits of the work. The fact that in the space of about Twenty Years, SIXTYFIVE EDITIONS, numbering above Two Hundred Thousand Copies, have been required for the purpose of meeting the steadily increasing demand for the work, sufficiently evinces the estimation in which it has been hel. In preparing this Revised and Enlarged Edition, every portion of the original work has been reconsidered in the light of the experience of twenty years spent by the present editor in studies connected with this department of education, and with the aid of numerous publications in the same department, which, during this period, have issued from the European press. The results of this labor are apparent on almost every page, in new modifications of the old materials, and especially in such additional information in regard to its various topics as the present advanced state of classical education in this country seemed obviously to demand. The publishers commend this new edition to the attention of Teachers throughout the country, and express the hope that in its present form it will be deemed worthy of a continuance of the favor which it has so long received. The following are extracts from a few of the many letters the Publishers have received from teachers from all parts of thecountry in commendation of this work:The revised edition of Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar is without doubt the best published in America. I have no doubt that the time is near at hand when this series of works will, by all lovers of the classics, be considered as the' National Series.' The pronunciation is now by the same class considered the American Standard. I will hail with joy the day when every college and school in our country shall have adopted Prof Andrews' series as the foundation of true classic knowledge. As such I consider it. and for that reason have I used it since I first knew its existence.-Mfaritin Armstrong, Potomac Semiuary, Romney, Va. Allow me to say, after a careful examination, that, in my judgment, it is the best manual of Latin Grammar to be found in the English language. In revising it the author has preserved the happy medium between saying tpo much and too litle, so desirable for a Latin text-book for this country. In philosophical arrangement, simplicity of expression, and for brevity and fulness. it must entitle the author to the first rank in American classical scholarship. I shall use it in my classes, and recommend it to all teachers of Latin in this country. —. E. Cobleigh, Professor of Ancient Languages and Literature, in Lawrence University, Appleton, Wis. I most heartily concur in the above recommendation.-F. 0. Blair, Professor in Lawrence University. The Grammar, as revised, is, I think, for school purposes superior to any work of the kind yet published in America. Philosophic in its arrangement and definitions, and full and accurate in its details, it sets forth the results of the learned researches of the Germans in language easy of comprehension and suitable for reference in daily recitations.L. H. Deneen, Lebanon, Illinois. I am highly pleased with the Revised Edition, 4nd consider the additions as decided improvements In my opinion Dr. Andrews' works surpass all others in the market. I see no reason why the Grammar should not now supersede even Zumpt's, both in the study and recitation rooms.-Sidney A. Norton, Hamzilton, Ohio. 3

Page  [unnumbered] NEW SERIES OF LATIN SCHOOL BOOKS. I have reason to believe that the improvements, introduced into the last edition of Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Gramniar by my respected and lamented friend Dr. Andrews. a little before his death, add very decidedly to the value of a work, which has done more to give the knowledge of that language to the youth of this country than any, perhaps than all others. —Theodore W. Woolsey, President of Yale College, New Haven. No book, probably, has done more to improve classical training in American schools than Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar. Its use is almost universal; and where it has not itself been adopted as a manual, it has made grammars of similar excellence necessary. The last edition, the sixty-fifth, was carefully revised by the lamented Dr. Andrews, not long before his death, by whom it was greatly enlarged by the incorporation of much valuable information, derived mainly from the last edition of the Latin Grammar of Professor Zumpt. It will therefore be found to be much improved as a repository of the principles and facts of the Latin language.- Thomas A. Thacher, Professor of Latin in Yale College, New Haven. It is unnecessary to commend a Latin Grammar, which has been for twenty years in common use in our Colleges, and has generally superseded all others. The Revised Edition contains the results of the labors of Dr. Andrews, during all that time, on various Latin Classics, and on his great Latin Lexicon; and cannot, therefore, but be greatly improved.-Edward Robinson, D. D., LL. D., Prof. of Biblical Literature in Union Theol. Seminary, New York City. 1I regard Andrews' and Stoddard's new Latin Grammar, as an exceedingly valuable work. It evidently contains the results of the Author's careful and long continued investigation, and from itz fulness, clearness, and accuracy, will undoubtedly become the Standard Latin Grammar of this Continent. In Western New York, we have for a long time been using the earlier editions, and they have rapidly won upon the public regard. This new edition will give it a stronger claim upon our favor. It must rapidly supersede all others. I can unhesitatingly recommend the New Grammar as the best in use.Lewis H. Clark, Principal of Sodus Academy, Wayne Co., N. Y. I have looked over the new edition of the Grammar with great interest. It is now eighteen years since I introduced it into this college, and I have never felt inclined to change it for any other. The revision, without changing its general character, has added greatly to its fulness and completeness. It is now fully equal to Zumpt's in these respects, and far superior to it in adaptation to the class room. There is no other school grammar that can pretend to compare with.it. I have introduced the new edition here, and have no idea I shall ever wish to substitute another. The services of Prof. Andrews in the cause of classical learning in the United States cannot be over estimated.-M. Sturgus, Professor in Hanover Co'lege, Indiana. I am willing to say that I am decidedly in favor of Andrews' Latin Series.- Geo. Gale, Galesville University, Wisconsin. Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar I consider decidedly the best Latin Grammar ever published.-Ransom Norton, North Livermore, Maine. Such a work as Andrews and Stoddard's Revised Latin Grammar needs no recommendation, it speaks for itself.-A. A. Keen, Professor of Greek and Latin, Tufts College, Medford, Ms. I have examined the revised edition of Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, and think it a complete success. I see it has all of Zumpt's merits and none of his defects, and welcome its advent with great pleasure.-James M. Whiton, Hopkins Grammar School, New Haven, Conn. I have examined Andrews, and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, and say. without hesitation, that the principles of the Latin language can be more easily and systematically acquired from it than any work I have ever seen. The arrangement and simplicity of its terms are such as to make it easily comprehended by the beginner, while, at the same time, its copiousness is sufficient for the most advanced student. The author has evidently noted and profited by the defects in this respect of most of the Latin Grammars now in use. —C. W. Field4, Mauch Chunk. Pa. The superior merits of the original work. are too well known and appreciated to neel any commendation from me. I have had some means of knowing how great pains and labor Dr. Andrews has bestowed upon this final revision and improvement of the work, and. therefore, was not unprepared to find its acknowledged excellence materially increased, and I do not hesitate to say, that its value has been greatly enhanced, and that it has been brought as near as practicable to the present state, of philological science.John D. Philbrick, Superintendent of Public Schools, city of Boston. I have looked the Grammar through with much care and a great degree of satisfaction, and I unhesitatingly pronounce it superior to any Latin Grammar in method and manner of discussion, and happily adapted to the wants of both teachers and pupils. —J. W. Simonds, Principal of New England Christian Institute, Andover, N. H. 4

Page  [unnumbered] NEW SERIES OF LATIN SCHOOL BOOKS. We have lately introduced the Revised Edition, and regard it as a great improvement upon former editions. We shall use it exclusively in future.-E. Flint, Jr., Principal of Lee High School. After a due examination, I am happy to state that the Author has admirably accomplished the objects which he aimed at in making this last revision. He has added much that is in the highest degree valuable without materially changing the arrangement of the original work. The work appears to me well adapted to the daily use of our Classical Schools, and I shall hereafter direct my classes to use it.- C. L. Cushman, Principal of Peabody High School, South Danvers, Ms. The Revised Grammar seems to me greatly improved and to be every thing a scholar could wish.-Z. B. Sturgis, Charlestown, Indiana. I have subjected the Revised Edition to the test of actual use in the recitation room, and am persuaded that in its present form it decidedly surpasses every other Latin Grammar in point of adaptation to the wants of students in our Academies, High Schools and Colleges.-William S. Palmer; Central High School, Cleaveland, Ohio. I think Andrews' Series of Latin Works the most systematic and best arranged course I have ever seen,-and believe if our pupils would use them altogether, we should find them much better scholars. I shall use them wholly in my school.-A. C. Stockin, Principal of Monmouth Academy, Mlaine. The examination of the Revised Edition has afforded me very great pleasure, and leads me to express the deep and sincere conviction that it is the most complete Grammar of the Latin language with which I am acquainted, and best adapted for ready consultation upon any subject connected with the study of Latin Authors. The paper, the typography, and the binding,-the whole style of publication-are such as to commend the good taste and judgment of the Publishers.-J. R. Boyd, Principal of Mapleswood Young Ladies Institute, Pittsfield, Mass. I find the Revised Edition to be just what is needed for a Latin Grammar,-clear, comprehensive, yet concise, in the subject matter. I shall introduce it as a permanent textbook.-B. F. Dake, Principal of Clyde High School, Wayne Co., N. Y. I have carefully examined your Revised Edition throughout, particularly the Corrections and Additions. It now appears to me all that can be desired. It seems like parting with a familiar friend to lay aside the old edition, with its many excellencies, and adopt the neow. but I shall cheerfully make the sacrifice for the greater benefit that will accrue to those commencing the study of Latin from time to time.-J. H. Graham, Principal of Northfield Institution, Vermont. I thought before that the old edition was entitled to the appellation of " The Latin Grammar," but I perceive its value has been much increased by the numerous emendations and additions of Prof. Andrews. The Grammar is now fitted to be a complete hand-book for the Latin scholar during his whole course.-E. W. Johnson, Canton Academy, Canton, N. Y. I unhesitatingly pronounce the Revised Edition of Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar the best Grammar of the Latin Language, and shall certainly use my influence in its behalf.-H. E. J. Clute, Edinboro', Pa. After a thorough examination, I have no hesitation in pronouncing it the best Latin Grammar for the purposes of the recitation room that I have Ever examined. In its present form it ought certainly to displace a large majority of the Grammars in common use. Its rules of Syntax are expressed with accuracy and precision, and are in fact, what all rules ought to be, reliable guides to the learner.-James W. Andrews, Principal of Ilopewell Academy, Penn. Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, in the arrangement and adaptation to the learner. has excelled all others, and the revised edition is certainly a great improvement, and I do believe is better adapted to the wants of the student than any other. The whole seems to be critically revised and corrected. Prof. Andrews Was truly the student's benefactor.-M. L. Severance, North Troy, Vermont. It gives me great pleasure to bear my testimony to the superior merits of the Latin Grammar edited by Professor Andrews and Mr. Stoddard. I express most cheerfully, unhesitatingly, and decidedly, my preference of this Grammar to that of Adam which has, for so long a time, kept almost undisputed sway in our schools.-Dr. C. Beck, Cambridge. I know of no Grammar published in this country, which promises to answer so well the purposes of elementary classical instruction, and shall be glad to see it introduced Into our best schools.- Charles K. Dillaway, Boston. Your new Latin Grammar appears to me much better suited to the use of students than any othergrammar I am acquainted with.-Prof. TWm. M. Holland, Hartford, Ct. 5

Page  [unnumbered] NEW SERIES OF LATIN SCHOOL BOOKS. I have adopted the Latin Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard in the school under my charge, believing it better adapted, upon the whole, for elementary instruction than any similar work which I have examined. It combines the improvements of the recent Ger. man works on the subject with the best features of that old favorite of the schools, Dr. Adam's Latin Grammar.-Henry Drisler. Professor of Latin in Columbia College. A careful review of the Revised Edition of Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar, shows that this favorite text-book still continues to deserve the affections and confidence of Teachers and Pupils, incorporating as it does the results of Prof. Andrews' own constant study for many years with the investigations of English and German Philologists. No other Grammar is now so well fitted to meet the wants of the country as the rapid demand for it will show beyond doubt.-A. S. Hartwell, University of St. Louis. This Grammar of the Latin Language. now universally pronounced the very best. is greatly improved by the corrections, revisions and additions of this revised edition. We do not believe a text-book was ever written which introduced so great an improvement in the method of teaching Latin, as this has done. We wish the revised edition the greatest success, which we are sure it merits.-Rhode Island Schoolnmaster. I have examined your revised edition with considerable care, and do not hesitate to pronounce it a great improvement upon the old editions, and as near perfection as we are likely to have. I have no doubt it will come into general use.-A. Williams, Professor of Latin, Jefferson College, Canonlsburg, Pa. I have been much interested in the Revised Edition. The improvement is very striking, and I shall no longer think of giving it up and putting Zumpt in its place. I am much pleased with the great improvement in the typography. You have given to our schools a book fifty per cent better in every respect, and I trust you will have your reward in largely increased sales.-William J. Rolfe, Master of Oliver High School, Lawrence, Ms. I can with much pleasure say that your Grammar seems to me much better adapted to the present condition and wants of our schools than any one with which I am acquainted, and to supply that which has long been wanted-a good Latin Grammar for common use.-F. Gardner, Principal of Boston Latin School. The Latin Grammar of Andrews and Stoddard is deserving, in my opinion, of the approbation which so many of our ablest teachers have bestowed upon it. It is believed that, of all the grammars before the public, this has greatly the advantage, in regard both to the excellence of its arrangement, and the accuracy and copiousness of its information.-H. B. Hackett, Prof. of Biblical Literature in Newton Theological Seminary. The universal favor with which this Grammar is received was not unexpected. It will bear a thorough and discriminating examination. In the use of well-defined and expressive terms, especially in the syntax, we know of no Latin or Greek grammar which is to be compared to this.-American Quarterly Register. These works will furnish a series of elementary publications for the study of Latin altogether in advance of any thing which has hitherto appeared, either in this country or in England.-American Biblical Repository. I cheerfully and decidedly bear testimony to the superior excellence of Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar to any manual of the kind with which I am acquainted. Every part bears the impress of a careful compiler. The principles of syntax are happily developed in the rulestwhilst those relating to the moods and tenses supply an important deficiency in our former grammars. The rules of prosody are also clearly and fully exhibited.-Rev. Lyman Coleman, Manchester, Vt. This work bears evident marks of great care and skill, and ripe and accurate scholarship in the authors. We cordially commend it to the student and teacher.-Biblical Repository. Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar is what I expected it would be-an excellent book. We cannot hesitate a moment in laying aside the books now in use, and introducing this.-Rev. J. Penney, D. D., New York. Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar bears throughout evidence of original and thorough investigation and sound criticism. It is, in my apprehension, so far as simplicity is concerned, on the one hand. and philosophical views and sound scholarship on the other, far preferable to other grammars; a work at the same time highly creditable to Its authors and to our country.-Professor A. Packard, Bowdoin College, Maine. I do not hesitate to pronounce Andrews and Stoddard's Latin Grammar superior to any other with which I am acquainted. I have never seen, any where, a greater amount of valuable matter compressed within limits equally narrow.-Hon. John Hall, Principal of EUington School, Conn. We have no hesitation in pronouncing this Grammar decidedly superior to any now in use.-Boston Recorder. 6

A Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament, including the Biblical Chaldee. Translated from the Latin of William Gesenius, late Professor of Theology in the University of Halle-Wittemberg. By EDWARD ROBINSON, D. D., LL. D. Professor of Biblical Literature in the Union Theological Seminary, New York. A new edition, with corrections and large additions, partly furnished by the author in manuscript, and partly condensed from his larger Thesaurus as compiled by Roediger. These corrections and additions were made by br. Gesenius, during an interval of several years, while carrying his Thesaurus through the press, and were transcribed and furnished by him expressly for this edition. They will be found to be very numerous. every page having been materially corrected and enlarged, and a large number of articles having been re-written. It is printed on a new type, the face and cut of which is very beautiful, and has been highly commended and approved. Dr. Robinson had already been trained to the business of lexicographical labor, when he began the translation of the present work. He is, in an uncommon degree, master of his own native tongue. He has diligence, patience, perseverance-yea, the iron diligence of Gesenius himself. For aught that I have yet been able to discover, all that can reasonably be expected or desired. has been done-by the translator; not only as to renderiag the work into English, but as to the manner and the accuracy of printing. The work will speak for itself, on the first opening. It does honor, in its appearance, to editor, printers, and publishers. I have only to add my hearty wish, that its beautiful white pages may be consulted and turned over, until they become thoroughly worn with the hands of the purchasers.-Prof. Stuart, in the Bibliosl Repository. There is no lexicon in English that can be put on a level with Robinson's. I recommend the present as the best Lexicon of the Hebrew and Biblical Ohaltee whieh an English scholar can have. —Rev. Dr. Samuel Davidson, of London. Gesenius' Lexicon is known wherever Hebrew is studied. On the merits of this work criticism has long ago pronounced its verdict of approval.-London Jewish Chronicle. This is a very beautiful and complete edition of the best Hebrew Lexicon ever yet produced. Gesenius, as a Hebrew philologist, is unequalled.-London Clerical Journal. This is decidedly the most complete edition of Gesenius' Manual Hebrew Lexicon.London Journal of Sacred Literature. ohItnson's 3atfrmon of thte tosaes, ina rtek. A Harmony of the Four Gospels, in Greek, according to the text of Hahn. Newly arranged, with Explanatory Notes, by EDWARD ROBINSON, D. D., LL.

This work of Dr. Robinson confines itself to the legitimate sphere of a Harmony of the Gospels; and we do not hesitate to say that in this sphere it will be found to be all that a Harmony need or can be. The original text is printed with accuracy and elegance. It is a feast to the eyes to look upon a page of so much beauty. Its arrangement is distinguished for simplicity and convenience. No one will ever be able to comprehend the relations of the Gospels to each other, or acquire an exact knowledge of their contents, unless he studies them with the aid of a Harmony. The present work furnishes in this respect just the facility which is needed; and we trust that among its other effects, it will serve to direct attention more strongly to the importance of this mode of study.Prof. Hackett, of Newton Theological Seminary. la lII r''s r'itl ttit.

A Harmony of the Four Gospels, in English, according to the common version; newly arranged, with Explanatory Notes. By ED)VARD ROBINSON, D. I)., LL. D. The object of this work is to obtain a full and consecutive account of all the facts of our Lord's life and ministry. In order to do this, the four gospel narratives have been so brought togetlier, as to present as nearly as possible the true chronological order, and where the same transaction is described by more than one writer, the different accounts are placed side by side, so as to fill out and supply each other. Such an arrangement affords the only full and perfect survey of all the testimony relating to any and every portion of our Lord's history. The evangelists are thus made their own best interpreters; and it is shown how wonderfully they are supplementary to each other in minute as well as in important particulars, and in this way is brought out fully and clearly the fundamental characteristics of their testimony, unity in diversity. To Bible classes, Sabbath schools, and all.vho love and seek.the truth in their closets and in their families, this work will be.found a useful assistant. I have used " Robinson's English Harmony " in teaching a Bible Class. The result, in my own mind, is a conviction of the great merits of this work, and its adaptation to impart the highest life and interest to Bible Class exercises, and generally to the diligent study of the Gospel. It is much to be desired that every one accustomed to searching the Scriptures should have this invaluable aid.-Rev. Dr. Skinner, New York. gobil sfn's ittitllarg of tt-e bible.

Page  3 PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION. The first edition of Sallust by the present editor having been favorably received by the public, no alteration in its plan has been thought necessary In preparing a second edition, however, every part has been carefully revised. The text, in the former edition of the Jugurthine War was based upon that of Cortius. It was not until nearly the whole of that portion of the work was printed off, that the editor was able to obtain the highly valuable editions, which, within a few years past, have issued from the German press. Of these such use was made in the remainder of the work, as the brief time allowed for this purpose would permit. The text of Cortius was distinguished from those previously in common use by frequent ellipses, especially of particles, pronouns, and the substantive verb These ellipses gave to the author's style an appearance of peculiar harshness; and rendered the connexion at times obscure and difficult. Besides other valuable improvements in the text of this author, the German editors, after the most careful collation of manuscripts and early editions have in many instances restored the words omitted by Cortius. The text adopted in both parts of the present edition is, in general, that of Kritz. but modified by reference to the editions of Planche, Burnouf, Gerlach, Herzog and the Bipont editors. The alterations made in this edition will, it is believed, commend themselves to all, who shall examine them with care, as serving to remove many of the difficulties found in the common editions. The orthography of the first edition, which, with few exceptions, was that adopted by the Bipont editors and by Planche, has been retained. The following extracts from the preface to the first edition will sufficiently explain its general plan. "In arranging the two treatises of Sallust constituting the text of this work, the first place has been assigned to the War against Jugurtha. Such an arrangement seemed to be expedient in a work intended for the use of students not previously familiar with Roman history; inasmuch as the History of Catiline's Conspiracy, which occurred many years after the war against Jugurtha, contains numerous allusions to persons engaged in that war, and to political events connected with it. 3

Page  4 4 PREFACE. As some of the most prominent difficulties in Latin syntax arise from the use of the oratio obliqua, the occurrence of this construction has generally been denoted by means of single inverted commas, while direct quotations are distin guished by the usual marks. To the preparation of the accompanying Dictionary, much time and labor have been devoted. The design has been to unite, so far as a due regard to brevity would permit, the advantages of a Lexicon Sallustianum with those of a general dictionary." To this end the common significations of each word are given, whether occurring in Sallust or not, but in noting the constructions of words, those only are mentioned, which are found in this author. "The plan of the work did not permit the introduction of extended discussions relating to points of history or biography, customs or laws. For minute information on these and kindred subjects, it was thought better to refer the student to his Classical Dictionary and Roman Antiquities, and especially to some good Roman history; such, for example, as Ferguson's Roman Republic. In preparing the notes of this edition, it has been the aim of the editor to supply such information only, as could not properly be inserted in the Dictionary He has endeavoured to furnish precisely such aid as he supposed a diligent student would need, and to present it in such a form as would direct his mvestiga. tions, instead of superseding them. A free use has been made of the materials contained in the notes of Burnouf, Planche and Kritz, and such other notes have been added as the design of the work seemed to require. In explaining the grammatical constructions, the editor has generally contented himself with a simple reference to that part of the grammar in which a solution of the difficulty may be found, leaving it to the student's own reflection to make the application

Page  5 LIFE OF CAIUS CRISPUS SALLUSTIUS. SALLUST, the celebrated Roman historian, was born at Amiterum, a town, in the Sabine territory, in the year of Rome 668, 86 years before the birth of Christ, and in the consulship of Cinna and Carbo. While young he removed to Rome, where he devoted himself to literary pursuits, under the direction of Atteius Praetextatus, a celebrated Athenian grammarian, and an instructor in the art of rhetoric. At an early age, probably about the year of Rome 695, he obtained the questorship, and consequently became entitled to a seat in the senate. In the year 701, during a period of great civil commotion, he was made a tribune of the people; and in the dissensions consequent upon the death of Clodius, he took an active part in opposition to Milo. To this course he was probably moved not less by personal hostility to Milo, whom he had greatly injured, and from whom he had received a severe, but well merited chastisement, than by attachment to the party of Clodius. In the year 704 the censors, Appius Claudius and Calpurnius Fiso, degraded him from his rank as senator, on account of the infamy of his private character. It was probably about this time, that he wrote the Illstory of the Catilinarian Conspiracy, with the exception, perhaps, of the part relating to the characters of Caesar and Cato, though some ascribe to the whole work a later date. Of most of the events connected with this conspiracy, Sallust had been an eye witness, and, with few exceptions, lie appears to have recorded them with exemplary impartiality. Though at a later period, the bitter enemy of Cicero, he manifests no such hostility in his account of this conspiracy, unless it be found in the somewhat faint praise which he bestows upon that illustrious orator and patriotic statesman. Notwithstanding he expressed the determination in the introduction of this history, of spending the remainder of his days remote from the agitations of public life, he yet entered soon after with renewed ardor into the violent strug. gles which arose between the parties of Pompey and Caesar. In this contest he espoused the cause of Caesar, to whom he was personally attached, and through whose influence, in the year of the city 706, he was again made questor, and consequently reinstated in the senate. In the following year by the same influence he was raised to the pretorship, and about this time also he married Terentia, whom Cicero had recently divorced. 1* 5

Page  6 6 LIFE OF CAIUS CRISPUS SALLUSTIUS. Soon after these events the civil war was renewed in Africa, where the remnants, of the senatorial party had been assembled under the command of Scipio and Cato. To oppose these Sallust was directed to conduct a detachment of several legions, by the way of Capua to the shores of Campania, where they were to embark for Africa. On arriving at the port of embarkation, a mutiny arose among the troops on account of their unwillingness to leave Italy, and to encounter anew the hardships and dangers to which they had been so long exposed. Sallust found his authority of no avail to suppress the insurrection, and was compelled to secure his own safety by a precipitate flight to Rome, whither he was followed by a great number of the troops. Order being at length restored by the presence and authority of Caesar, the legions consented to embark, and shortly afterwards landed in Africa. Subsequently inan expedition entrusted to his command, against the island of Cercina, Sallust is said to have evinced considerable courage, military skill and prowess. After the close of this war, he was appointed to the command of the African province, where he acquired immense riches by oppressing the people. On his return home, he was accused by the Numidians, of mal-administration of the affairs of his province, but escaped punishment through the friendship of Caesar with whom he is reported to have shared his spoils. Scarcely, however, had he been acquitted, when Caesar, on whom all his fortunes depended, was assassinated, on the ides of March, in the year of Rome 710. With this event terminated the political career of Sallust, who thenceforward devoted himself wholly to the pursuits of private life. In his retirement, besides other historical works of which a few fragments now remain, he composed the History of the Jugurthine War, for which he had collected ample materials during his residence in Africa. He also erected a magnificent residence upon the Quirinal Hill, and laid out those beautiful gardens, which afterwards bore his name, and which were long considered as the pride and ornament of Rome. After his decease, which occurred in the year 718, his house and gardens became the favorite residence of successive Roman emperors. As a historian, Sallust has few equals. His style is in a high degree concise resembling in this and in other respects that of Thucydides, whom, he seens to have taken as his model. He is distingaished also for his uncommon talent at graphic description, and his masterly delineations of character. In his writings he is ever the advocate of virtue, and the stern, uncompromising foe of corruption in every form, whether exhibited in the renal administration of government, or in the obscurer vices of private ii'e. Unfortunately for his memory, the principles of virtue inculcated in his writings seem to have had but little influence in the conduct of his life; and posterity has shown the less indulgence to his faults, from the contrast which they exhibit to his own moral precepts

Nam contra reputando neque majus aliud neque prestabilius invenies, magisque natura industriam hominum quam vim aut tempus deesse. Sed dux atque imperator vitas mortalium animus est; qui ubi ad gloriam virtutis via grassatur, abund6 pollens potensque et clarus est, neque fortuna eget: quippe que probitatem, industriam aliasque artes bonas neque dare neque eripere cuiquam potest. Sin, captus pravis cupidinibus, ad inertiam et voluptates corporis pessum datus est, perniciosa libidine paulisper usus, ubi per socordiam vires, tempus, ingenium defluxere, nature infirmitas accusatur: suam quisque culpam auctores ad negotia transferunt. Quod si hominibus bonarum rerum tanta cura esset, quanto studio aliena ac nihil profutura multumque etiam periculosa petunt, neque regerentur magis, quam regerent casus, et eo magnitudinis procederent, uti pro mortalibus gloriA wterni fierent. 11. Nam uti genus hominum compositum est ex corpore et aninia, ita res cunct.e studiaque omnia nostra, corpo

Igitur praBclara facies, magne divitike, ad hoc vis corporis et alia omniahujuscemodi brevi dilabuntur; at ingenii egregia facinora, sicuti anima, immortalia sunt. Postremo corporis et fortunae bonorum ut initium, sic finis est, omniaque orta occidunt, et aucta senescunt: animus incorruptus, seternus, rector humani generis, agit atque habet cuncta, neque ipse habetur. Quo magis pravitas eorum admiranda est, qui, dediti corporis gaudiis, per luxum atque ignaviam wetatem agunt, ceterum ingenium, quo neque melius neque amplius aliud in natura mortalium est, incultu atque socordia torpescere sinunt, quum prwesertim tam multae variseque sint artes animi, quibus summa claritudo paratur. III. Veruim ex his magistratus et imperia, postremo omnis cura rerum publicarum minime mihi hac tempestate cupienda videntur; quoniam neque virtuti honos datur, neque illi, quibus per fraudem is fuit, utique tuti, aut eo magis honesti sunt. Nam vi quidem regere patriam aut parentes quamquam et possis, et delicta corrigas, tamen importunum est; quum preosertim omnes rerum mutatipnes coedem, fugam aliaque hostilia portendant. Frustra autem niti, neque aliud se fatigando nisi odium qu.erere, extremn dementite est: nisi forte queln inhonesta et perniciosa libido tenet potentiae paucorum decus atque libertatem suam gratificari. IV. Ceterum ex aliis negotiis, quoe ingenio exercentur, in primis magno usui est memoria rerum gestarum: cujus de virtute quia multi dixere, praetereundum puto, simul, ne per insolentiam quis existimet memet studium meum laudando extollere. Atque ego credo fore, qui, quia decrevi procul a republica aetatem agere, tanto tamque utili labori meo nomen inertiae imponant;. certe,

Page  3 JUGURTHA. 3 quibus maxima industria videtur salutare plebem et conviviis gratiam quearere. Qui si reputaverint, et quibus ego temporibus magistratus adeptus sim, et quales viri idem assequi nequiverint, et postea que genera hominum in senatum pervenerint, profecto existimabunt me magis merito quam ignavia judicium animi mei mutavisse, majusque commodum ex otio meo, quam ex aliorum negotiis,reipublicee venturum. Nam seepe ego audivi, Q. Maximum, P. Scipionem, praterea civitatis nostrae prseclaros viros solitos ita dicere,'quum majorum imagines intuerentur, vehementissime sibi animum ad virtutem accendi.' Scilicet non ceram illam neque figuram tantam vim in sese habere, sed memoria rerum gestarum eam flammam egregiis viris in pectore crescere, neque priuis sedari, quam virtus eorum famam atque gloriam adaequaverit. At contra quis est omnium his moribus, quin divitiis et sumptibus, non probitate neque industria cum majoribus suis contendat? Etiam homines novi, qui antea per virtutem soliti erant nobilitatem antevenire, furtim et per latrocinia potius quam bonis artibus ad imperia et honores nituntur; proinde quasi prastura et consulatus atque alia omnia hujuscemodi per se ipsa clara et magnifica sint, ac non perinde habeantur, ut eorum, qui ea sustinent, virtus est. Veruim ego liberius altiusque processi, dum me civitatis morum piget taedetque: nunc ad inceptum redeo. V. Bellum scripturus sum, quod populus Romanus cum Jugurtha, rege Numidarum, gessit: primum, quia mag. num et atrox variaque victoria fuit; dein, quia tune primum supe'biae nobilitatis obviam itum est. Quse contentio divina et humana cuncta permiscuit, e6que vecordim processit, uti studiis civilibus bellum atque vastitas Italiwa

Page  4 4 C. CRISPI SALLUSTI1 finem faceret. Sed priusquam hujuscemodi rei initium expedio, pauca supra repetam, quo ad cognoscendum omnia illustria magis magisque in aperto sint. Bello Punico secundo, quo dux Carthaginiensium Hannibal post magnitudinem nominis Romani Italiae opes maxima attriverat, Masinissa rex Numidarum, in amicitiam receptus a P. Scipione, cui postea Africano cognomen ex virtute fuit, multa et praclara rei militaris facinora fecerat, ob qure, victis Carthaginiensibus et capto Syphace, cujus in Africa magnum atque late imperium valuit, populus Romanus, quascumque urbes et agros manu ceperat, regi dono dedit. Igitur amicitia Masinissae bona atque honesta nobis permansit: imperii vitaque ejus finis idem fuit. Deinde Micipsa filius regnum solus obtinuit, Manastabale et Gulussa fratribus morbo absumptis. Is Adherbalem et Hiempsalem ex sese genuit; Jugurthamque, Manastabalis fratris filium, quem Masinissa, quod ortus ex concubin& erat, privatum reliquerat, eodem cultu, quo liberos suos, domi habuit. VI. Qui ubi primum adolevit, pollens viribus, decora facie, sed multo maxime ingenio validus, non se luxu neque inertia corrumpendum dedit; sed, uti mos gentis illius est, equitare, jaculari, cursu cum requalibus certare: et, quum omnes gloria antei'ret, omnibus tamen carus esse; ad hoc pleraque tempora in venando agere, leonem atque alias feras primus aut in primis ferire; plurimum facere, et minimum ipse de se loqui. Quibus rebus Micip. sa tametsi initio letus fuerat, existimans virtutem Jugur. thin regno suo glorive fore, tamen, postquam hominem adolescentem, exacta sua tetate, et parvis liberis, magis magisque crescere intellegit, vehementer eo negotio permotus, multa cum animo suo volvebat. Terrebat eum

Page  5 JUGURTHA. 5 natura mortalium avida imperii et praeceps ad explendam animi cupidinem, praeterea opportunitas suse liberorumque atatis, qua etiam mediocres viros spe praeda transversos agit, ad hoc studia Numidarum in Jugurtham accensa, ex quibus, si talem virum interfecisset, ne qua seditio aut bellum oriretur, anxius erat. VII. His difficultatibus circumventus, ubi vide* neque per vim neque insidiis opprimi posse hominem tam acceptum popularibus, quod erat Jugurtha manu promptus et appetens gloriaE militaris, statuit eum objectare periculis. et eo modo fortunam tentare. Igitur bello Numantino Micipsa quum populo Romano equitum atque peditum auxilia mitteret, sperans vel ostentando virtutem vel hostium sevitia facile eum occasurum, prmefecit Numidis, quos in Hispaniam mittebat. Sed ea res longe aliter, ac ratus erat, evenit. Nam Jugurtha, ut erat impigro atque acri ingenio, ubi naturam P. Scipionis, qui tune Romanis imperator erat, et morem hostium cognovit, multo labore multaque cura, praeterea modestissime parendo et saepe obviam eundo periculis in tantam claritudinem brevi pervenerat, ut nostris vehementer carus, Numantinis maximo terrori esset. Ac sane, quod difficillimum in primiS est, et prcelio strenuus erat, et bonus consilio; quorum alterum ex providentia timorem, alterum ex audacia temeritatem afferreplcrumque solet. Igitur imperator omnes fere res asperas per Jugurtham agere, in amicis habere, magis magisque eum in dies amplecti; quippe cujus neque consilium neque inceptum ullum frustra erat. Huc accedebat munificentia animi et ingenii solertia, quis rebus sibi multos ex Romanis familiari amicitia conjunxerat. VIII. Ea tempestate in exercitu nostro fudre complures novi atque nobiles, quibus divitiae bono honestoque potio

Page  6 6 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII res erant, factiosi domi, potentes apud socios, clari magis quam honesti, qui Jugurthae non mediocrem animum pollicitando accendebant,'si Micipsa rex occidisset, fore, uti solus imperii Numidias potiretur: in ipso maximam virtutem; Romee omnia venalia esse.' Sed postquam, Numantia deleta, P. Scipio dimittere auxilia et ipse reverti domum decrevit, donatum atque laudatum magnifice pro concione Jugurtham in praetbrium abduxit, ibique secreto monuit,' uti potius publice quam privatim amicitiam populi Romani coleret, neu quibus largiri insuesceret; periculose a paucis emi, quod multorum esset. Si permanere vellet in suis artibus, ultro illi et gloriam et regnum venturum; sin properantius pergeret, suamet ipsum pecunia prvecipitem casurum.' IX. Sic locutus, cum litteris eum, quas Micipse redderet, dimisit. Earum sententia hkec erat: "Jugurthae tui bello Numantino long6 maxima virtus fuit; quam rem tibi certo scio gaudio esse. Nobis ob merita sua carus est: uti idem senatui et populo Romano sit, summa ope nitemur. Tibi quidem pro nostra amicitia gratulor. Eni habes virum dignum te atque avo suo Masinissa." Igitur rex, ubi ea, quae fama acceperat, ex litteris imperatoris ita esse cognovit, quum virtute tur gratia viri permotus, flexit animum suum, et Jugurtham beneficiis vincere aggressus est; statimque eum adoptavit, et testamento pariter cum filiis heredem instituit. Sed ipse paucos post annos, morbo atque aetate confectus, quum sibi finem vitam adesse intelligeret, coram amicis et cognatis, itemque Adherbale et Hiempsale filiis, dicitur hujuscemodi verba cum Jugurtha habuisse. X. "Paivum ego te, Jugurtha, amisso patre, sine spe sine opibus in meum regnum accepi, existimans non

Page  7 JUGURTHA. 7 miniIs me tibi quam [liberis,] si genuissen, ob beneficia carum fore: nequde ea res falsum me habuit. Nam, ut alia magna et egregia tua omittam, novissime, rediens Numiantia, meque regnumque meum gloria honoravisti, tuique virtute nobis Romanos ex amicis amicissimos fecisti; in Hispania nomen familis renovatum est; postrerm, quod difficillimum inter mortales est, gloria invidiam vicisti. Nunc, quonianm mihi natura finem vitae facit, per hanc dextram, per regni fidem moneo obtestorque te, uti hos, qui tibi genere propinqui, beneficio meo fratres sunt, caros habeas; neu malis alienos adjungere, quam sanguine conjunctos retinere. Non exercitus neque thesauri praesidia regni sunt, verum amici, quos neque armis cogere, neque auro parare queas; officio et fide pariuntur. Quis autem amicior, quam frater fratri? aut quem alienum fidurn invenies, si tuis hostis fueris? Equidem ego vobis regnum trado firmum, si boni eritis; sin mali, imbecillum. Nam concordia parvae res crescunt, discordia maximae dilabuntur. Ceterum ante hos te, Jugurtha, qui aotate et sapientia prior es, ne aliter quid eveniat, providere decet; nam in omni certamine, qui opulentior est, etiam si accipit injuriam, tamen quia plus potest, facere videtur. Vos autem, Adherbal et Hiempsal, colite, observate talem hune virum; imitammni virtuter, et enitimini, ne ego meliores liberos sumpsisse videar, quam genuisse." XI. Ad ea Jugurtha, tametsi regem ficta locutum intelligebat, et ipse longe aliter animo agitabat, tamen pro tempore benigne respondit. Micipsa paucis post diebus moritur. Postquam illi more regio justa magnifice fecerant, reguli in unum convenere, uti inter se de cunctis negotiis disceptarent. Sed Hiempsal, qui minimus ex illis 2

Page  8 8 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII erat, natura fejox, et jam ante ignobilitatem Jugurtha3, quia materno genere impar erat, ldespiciens, dextera Adherbalem assedit, ne medius ex tribus, quod apud Numidas honori ducitur, Jugurtha foret. Dein tarnen uti etati concederet fatigatus a fratre, vix in partem alteram transductus est. Ibi quum multa de administrando imperio dissererent, Jugurtha inter alias res jacit,'oportere quinquennii consulta et decreta omnia rescindi; nam per ea tempora confectum annis- Micipsam parum animo valuisse.' Turn' idem' Hiempsal'placere sibi' respondit;'nam ipsum illum tribus proximis annis adoptatione in regnium pervenisse.' Quod verbum in pectus Jugurthae altius, quam quisquam ratus erat, descendit. Itaque ex eo tempore ira et metu anxius moliri, parare, atque ea rnodo animo habere, quibus Hiempsal per dolum caperetur. Quae ubi tardius procedunt, neque lenitur animus ferox, statuit quovis modo inceptum perficere. XII. Primo conventu, quem ab regulis factum supra memoravi, propter dissensionem placuerat dividi thesauros, finesque imperii singulis constitui. Itaque tempus ad utramque rem decernitur, sed maturius ad pecuniam distribuendam. Reguli interea in loca propinqua thesauris, alius alio, concessere. Sed Hiempsal in oppido Thirmida forte ejus domo utebatur, qui proximus lictor Jugurtha carus acceptusque ei semper fuerat.. Quem ille casu ministrum oblatum promissis onerat, impellitque, uti tamquam suam visens domum eat, portarum claves adulterinas paret, nam verse ad Hiempsalem referebantur; ceterum,' ubi res postularet, se ipsum cum magna manu venturum.' Numida mandata brevi confecit, atque, ut doc tus erat, noctu Jugurtha milites introducit. Qui post quam in aedes irrupdre, diversi regem querere, dormien

XIII. Ceterum fama tanti facinoris per omnem Africam brevi divulgatur: Adherbalem omnesque, qui sub imperio Micipsae fuerant, metus invadit. In duas partes discedunt Numidee: plures Adherbalem sequuntur, sed illurn alterum bello meliores. Igitur Jugurtha quam maximas potest copias armat, urbes partim vi, alias voluntate imperio suo adjungit, omni Numidiae imperare parat. Adherbal, tametsi Romam legatos miserat, qui senatum docerent de eade fratris et fortunis suis, tamen fretus multitudine militum parabat armis'contendere. Sed ubi res ad certamen venit, victus ex prcelio profugit in provinciam, ac deinde Romam contendit. Turn Jugurtha, patratis consiliis, postquam omnis Numidiae potiebatur, in otio facinus suum cum animo reputans timere populum Romanum, neque adversus iram ejus usquam, nisi in avaritia nobilitatis et pecunia sua, spem habere. Itaque paucis diebus cum auro et argento muto legatos Romam mittit, quis kraecepit, primum' uti veteres amicos muneribus expleant, deinde novos acquirant, postremo quecumque possint largiendo parare, ne cunctentur.' Sed ubi Romam legati venere, et ex praecepto regis hospitibus aliisque, quorum ea tempestate in senatu auctoritas pollebat, magna munera misere, tanta commutatio incessit, uti ex maxima invidia in gratiam et favorem nobilitatis Jugurtha veniret, quorum pars spe, alii prxemio inducti singulos ex senatu ambiendo nitebantur, ne graviis in

Page  10 10 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII eum consuleretur. Igitur ubi legati satis confidunt, die constituto senatus utrisque datur. Turn Adherbalem hoc modo locutum accepimus: XIV. "Patres conscripti, Micipsa pater meus moriens mihi praecepit,' uti regni Numidime taritummodo procurationem existimarem meam, ceteruim jus et imperium ejus penes vos esse: simul eniterer domi militioeque quam maximo usui esse populo Romano; vos mihi cognatorum, vos affinium loco ducerem: si ea fecissem, in vestra amicitia exercitum, divitias, munimenta regni me habiturum.' Quae quum prrecepta parentis mei agitarem, Jugurtha, homo omniur, quos terra sustinet, sceleratissimus, contempto imperio vestro, Masinissae me nepotem, et jam ab stirpe socium atque amicum populi Romani, regno fortunisque omnibus expulit. Atque ego, patres conscripti, quoniam e6 miseriarum venturus eram, vellem potius ob mea quarn ob majorum meorum beneficia posse a vobis auxilium petere, ac maxime deberi mihi beneficia a populo Romano, quibus non egerem; secundum, ea si desideranda erant, uti debitis uterer. Sed quoniam parum tuta per se ipsa probitas est, neque mihi in manu fuit, Jugurtha qualis foret, ad vos confugi, patres conscripti, quibus, quod mihi miserrimum est, cogor prius oneri quam usui esse. Ceteri reges aut bello victi in amicitiam a vobis recepti sunt, aut in suis dubiis rebus societatem vestram appetiverunt: familia nostra cum populo Romano bello Carthaginiensi amicitiam instituit, quo tempore magis fides ejus. quam fortuna petenda erat. Quorum progeniem vos, patres conscripti, nolite pati me, nepotem Masinisse. frustra a vobis auxilium petere. Si ad impetrandum nihil causma haberem preiter miserandam fortunam, quod paulo ante rex genere, fama

Verum ego his finibus ejectus sum, quos majoribus meis populus Romanus dedit; unde pater et avus meus una vobiscum expulere Syphacem et Carthaginienses. Vestra beneficia mihi erepta sunt, patres conscripti, vos in mea injuria despecti estis. Eheu me miserum! Huccine, Micipsa pater, beneficia tua evasere, uti, quem tu parem cum liberis tuis, regniqueparticipem fecisti, is potissimum stirpis tuse extinctor sit? Numquam ergo familia nostra quieta erit? semperne in sanguine, ferro, fuga versabimur? Dum Carthaginienses incolumes fuere, jure omnia saeva patiebamur: liostes ab latere, vos amici procul, spes omnis in armis erat. Postquam illa pestis ex Africa ejecta est, aeti pacem agitabamus: quippe quis hostis nulnls erat, nisi forte quem vos jussissetis. Ecce autem ex improviso Jugurtha intoleranda audacia, scelere atque superbia sese efferens, fratre meo atque eodem propinquo suo interfecto, primum regnum ejus sceleris sui praedam fecit: post, ubi me iisdem dolis nequit capere, nihil minus quam vim aut bellum exspectantem in imperio vestro, sicuti videtis, extorrem patria, domo, inopem et coopertum miseriis effecit, ut ubivis tutius quam in meo regno essem. "( Ego sic existimabam, patres conscripti, ut praedicantem audiveram patrem meum,'qui vestram amicitiam diligenter colerent, eos multum laborem suscipere, ceterum ex omnibus maxime tutos esse.'

Quid agam? aut quo potissimum infelix accedam? Generis presidia omnia exstincta sunt: pater, uti necesse erat, naturae concessit; fratri, quemr minirma decuit, propinquus per scelus vitam eripuit; affines, amicos, propinquos ceteros, alium alia clades oppressit: capti ab Jugurtha pars in crucem acti, pars bestiis objecti sunt; pauci, quibus relicta est anima, clausi in tenebris cum mcerore et luctu morte graviorem vitam exigunt. Si omnia, quae aut amisi, aut ex necessariis adversa facta sunt, incolumia manerent, tamen, si quid ex improviso mali accidisset, vos implorarem, patres conscripti, quibus pro magnitudine imperii jus et injurias omnes curse esse decet. Nunc vero exsul patria, domo, solus atque omnium honestarum rerum egens, qu6 accidam, aut quos appellem? nationesne an reges, qui omnes familie nostra ob vestram amicitiam infesti sunt? an qubquam mihi adire licet, ubi non majorum meorum hostilia monumenta plurima sint? aut quisquam nostri misereri potest, qui aliquando vobis hostis fuit? Postremo Masinissa nos ita instituit, patres conscripti,'ne quem coleremus nisi populum Romanum, ne societates, ne foedera nova acciperemus; abunde magna prsesidia nobis in vestra amicitia fore; si huic imperio fortuna mutaretur, un niobis occidendum esse.' Virtute ac dis volentibus, magni estis et opulenti, omnia secunda et obedientia sunt; quo faciiius sociorum injurias curare licet.

Jam jam frater animo meo carissime, quamquam tibi immaturo, et unde minime decuit, vita erepta est, tamen letandum magis quam dolendum puto casum tuum: non enim regnum, sed fugam, exsilium, egestatem et omnes has, qume me prerunt, erumnas cum anima simul amisisti. At ego infelix, in tanta mala przecipitatus ex patrio regno, rerum humanarum spectaculum praebeo, incertus quid agam, tuasne injurias persequar, ipse auxilii egens, an regno consulam, cujus vitar necisque potestas ex opibus alienis pendet. Utinam emori fortunis meis honestus exitus esset, neu vivere contemptus viderer, si defessus malis injuriae concessissem. Nune neque vivere libet, neque mori licet sine dedecore. Patres conscripti, per vos, per liberos atque parentes vestros, per majestatem populi Romani, subvenite misero mihi, ite obviam injuriae, nolite pati regnum Numidiae, quod vestrum est, per scelus et sanguinem familime nostrae tabescere." XV. Postquam rex finem loquendi fecit, legati Jugurthie, largitione magis quam causa freti, paucis respondent:'Hiempsalem ob saevitiam suam ab Numidis interfectum: Adherbalem ultro bellum inferentem, postquan superatus sit, queri, quod injuriam facere nequivisset: Jugurtham ab senatu petere, ne se alium putarent, ac Numantiae cognitus esset, neu verba inimici ante facta

Fautores legatorum, praeterea magna pars gratia depravata, Adherbalis dicta contemnere, Jugurthae virtutem extollere laudibus; gratia, voce, denique omnibus modis pro alieno scelere et flagitio, sua quasi pro gloria, nitebantur. At contra pauci, quibus bonum et aequum divitiis carius erat,'subveniendum Adherbali, et Hiempsalis mortem severe vindicandam' censebant: sed ex omnibus maximae Emilius Scaurus, homo nobilis, impiger, factiosus, avidus potentile, honoris. divitiarum, ceteruim vitia sua callide occultans. Is postquam videt regis largitionem famosam impudentemque, veritus, quod in tali re solet, ne polluta licentia invidiam accenderet, animum a consueta libidine continuit. XVI. Vicit tamen in senatu pars illa, qume vero pretium aut gratiam anteferebat. Decretum fit,'uti decem legati regnum, quod Micipsa obtinuerat, inter Jugurtham et Adherbalem dividerent.' Cujus legationis princeps fuit L. Opimius, homo clarus et tune in senatu potens; quia consul, C. Graccho et M. Fulvio Flacco interfectis, acerrim6 victoriam nobilitatis in plebem exercuerat. Eum Jugurtha tametsi Romae in inimicis habuerat, tamen accuratissime recepit: dando et pollicitando multa perfecit, uti famae, fidei, postremo omnibus suis rebus commodum regis anteferret. Reliquos legatos eadem via aggressus, plerosque capit: paucis carior fides quam pecunia fuit. In divisione, quae pars Numidiae Mauretaniam attingit, agro virisque opulentior, Jugurthab traditur; illam alteram specie quam usu potiorem, quee portuosior et aodificiis magis exornata erat, Adherbal possedit. XVII. Res postulare videtur Africae situm paucis exponere, et eas gentes, quibuscum nobis bellumaut amicit

Page  15 JUGURTHA. 15 ia fuit, attingere. Sed quae loca et nationes ob calorem aut asperitatem item solitudines minuis frequentata sunt, de iis haud facile compertum narraverim; cetera quam paucissimis absolvam. In divisione orbis terrae plerique in partem tertiam Africam posuere: pauci tantummodo Asiam et Europam esse, sed Africam in Europa. Ea fines habet ab occidente fretum nostri maris et Oceani; ab ortu solis declivem latitudinem, quem locum Catabathmon incolae appellant. Mare seevum, importuosum; ager frugum fertilis, bonus pecori, arbore infecundus; ccelo terraque penuria aquarum. Genus hominum salubri corpore, velox, patiens laborum: plerosque senectus dissolvit, nisi qui ferro aut bestiis interiere, nam morbus haud saepe quemquam superat. Ad hoc malefici generis plurima animalia. Sed qui mortales initio Africam habuerint, quique postea accesserint, aut quomodo inter se permixti sint, quamquam ab ea fama, quae plerosque obtinet, diversum est, tamen, uti ex libris Punicis, qui regis Hiempsalis dicebantur, interpretatum nobis est, utique rem sese habere cultores ejus terram putant, quam paucissimis dicam: ceterum fides ejus rei penes auctores erit. XVIII. Africam initio habu.re Gaetuli et Libyes, asperi incultique, quis cibus erat caro ferinaatque humipabulum, uti pecoribus. Hi neque moribus neque lege, aut imperio cujusquam regebantur: vagi, palantes, qua nox coegerat, sedes habebant. Sed postquam in Hispania Hercules, sicuti Afri putant, interiit, exercitus ejus, compositus ex variis gentibus, amisso duce, ac passim multis, sibi quisque, imperium petentibus, brevi dilabitur. Ex eo numero Medi, Persae et Armenii, navibus in Afrlcan) transvecti, proximos nostro mari locos occupav6re, sed

Page  16 16 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII Persai intra Oceanum magis: hique alveos navium inversos pro tuguriis habuere, quia neque materia in agris, neque ab Hispanis emendi aut mutandi copia erat:,mare magnum et ignara lingua commercia prohibebant. Hi paulatir per connubia Gaetulos secum miscuere; et quia seepe tentantes agros, alia deinde alia loca petiverant, semet ipsi Nomadas appellavere. Ceterum adhuc adificia Numidarum agrestium, quse mapalia illi vocant, oblonga, incurvis lateribus tecta, quasi navium carinae sunt. Medi autem et Armenii, accessere Libyes; (nam hi propius mare Africum agitabant, Gaetuli sub sole magis, haud procul ab ardoribus:) hique mature oppida habuere; nam freto divisi ab Hispanih&mutare res inter se instituerant. Nomen eorum paulatim Libyes corrupere, barbara lingua Mauros pro Medis appellantes. Sed res Persarum brevi adolevit; ac postea, nomine Numidae, propter multitudinem a parentibus digressi, possedere ea loca, quae proxime Carthaginem Numidia appellatur. Deinde utrique alteris freti, finitimos armis aut metu sub imperium suum coegere, nomen gloriamque sibi addidere; magis hi, qui ad nostrum mare processerant, quia Libyes quam Gaetuli minus bellicosi. Denique Africa: pars inferior pleraque ab Numndis possessa est; victi omnes in gentem nomenque imperantium concessere. XIX. Postea Phcenices, alii multitudinis domi minuendae gratia, pars imperii cupidine, sollicitata plebe ct aliis novarum rerum avidis, Ilipponem, Hadrumetum, Iptim aliasque urbes in ora maritima condidere; hecque brevi multum auctas, pars originibus suis praesidio, aliae decori fuere. Nam de Cartllagine tacere melius puto quam parum dicere, quoniam alio properare tempus monet. Igitur ad Catabathmon, qui locus iEgyptum ab

Page  17 JUGURTHA. 17 Africa dividit, secundo mari prima Cyrene est colonia Therm6n, ac deinceps duam Syrtes, interque eas Leptis, deinde Philano6n are, quem locum rEgyptum versus finem imperii habuere Carthaginienses; post aliae Punice trl)es. Cetera loca usque ad Mauretaniam Numidra lenent: proxime Hispaniam Mauri sunt. Super Numidiam Gxetulos accepimus, partim in tuguriis, alios incultius vagos agitare, post eos _Ethiopas esse, dein loca exusta solis ardoribus. Igitur bello Jugurthino pleraque ex Punicis oppida et fines Carthagiensium, quos novissime habuerant, populus Romanus per magistratus administrabat: Gatulorum magna pars, et Numida uisque ad flumen Mulucham sub Jugurtha erant: Mauris omnibus rex Bocchus imperitabat, praeter nomen cetera ignarus populi Romani, itemque nobis neque bello neque pace antea cognitus. De Africa et ejus incolis ad necessitudinem rei satis dictum. XX. Postquam, diviso regno, legati Africa decessdre, et Jugurtha contra timorem animi proemia sceleris adeptum sese videt, certum ratus, quod ev amicis apud Numantiam acceperat, omnia Romae vepalia esse, simul et illorum pollicitationibus accensus, quos paulo ante muneribus expleverat, in regnum Adherbalis animum intendit. Ipse acer, bellicosus; at is, quem petebat, quietus, imbellis, placido ingenio, opportunus injuriae, metuens magis quam metuendus. Igitur ex improviso fines ejus cum magna manu invadit; multos mortales cum pecore atque alia praeda capit, aedificia incendit, pleraque loca hostiliter cum equitatu accedit: deinde cum omni multitudine in regnum suumn convertit; existimans dolore permotum Adherbalem injurias suas manu vindicaturum,

Page  18 18 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII. eamque rem belli causam fore. At ille, quod neque se parem armis existimabat, et amicitia populi Romani magis quam Numidis fretus erat, legatos ad Jugurtham de injuriis questum misit: qui tametsi contumeliosa dicta retulerant, prius tamen omnia pati decrevit, quam bellum sumere, quia tentatum antea secus cesserat. Neque eo magis cupido Jugurthae minuebatur; quippe qui totum ejus regnum animo jam invaserat. Itaque non, ut antea, cum praedatoria manu, sed magno exercitu comparato bellum gerere ccepit, et aperte totius Numidice imperium petere. Ceterum, qua pergebat, urbes, agros vastare, praedas agere; suis animum, hostibus terrorem augere. XXI. Adherbal ubi intellegit e6 processum, uti regnum aut relinquendum esset, aut armisretinendum,necessario copias parat, et Jugurthm obvius procedit. Interim haud longe a mari, prope Cirtam oppidum, utriusque consedit exercitus, et quia diei extremum erat, prselium non inceptum. Sed ubi plerumque noctis processit, obscuro etiamtum lumine, milites Jugurthini, signo dato, castra hostium invadunt; semisornnos partim, alios arma sumentes fugant funduntque. Adherbal cum paucisequitibus Cirtam profugit; et, ni multitudo togatorum fuisset, quae Numidas insequentes mcenibus pronibuit, uno die inter duos reges cceptum atque patratum bellum foret. Igitur Jugurtha oppidum circumsedit, vineis turribusque et machinis omnium generum expugnare aggreditur; maxime festinans tempus legatorum antecapere, quos, ante proelium factum, ab Adherbale Rornammissosaudiverat. Sed postquam senatus de bello eorum accepit, tres adolescentes in Africam legantur, qui ambos reges adeant, senatus populique Romani verbis nuntient, vello

Page  19 JUGURTHA, 19 et censere eos ab armis discedere; de controversiis suis jure potiuis quam bello disceptare: ita seque illisque dignum esse' XXII. Legati in Africam maturantes veniunt, eo magis, quod Romae, dum proficisci parant, de proelio facto et oppugnatione Cirtze audiebatur: sed is rumor clemens erat. Quorum, Jugurtha, accepta oratione, respondit:'sibi neque majus quicquam neque carius auctoritate senati esse; ab adolescentia ita se enisum, uti ab optimo quoque probaretur: virtute, non malitia P. Scipioni, summo viro, placuisse; ob easdem artes ab Micipsa, non )enuria liberorum, in regnum adoptatum esse. Ceterlum quo plura bene atque strenue fecisset, eo animum suum iljuriam minus tolerare. Adherbalem dolis vitee suae insidiatum; quod ubi comperisset, sceleri ejus obviam tsse. Populum Romanum neque recte neque pro bono facturum, si ab jure gentium sese prohibuerit. Postremo de omnibus rebus iegatos Romam bre.vi missurum.' Ita utrique digrediuntur. Adherbalis appellandi copia non fuit. XXIII. Jugurtha ubi eos Africa decessisse ratus est, neque propter loci naturam Cirtam armis expugnare potest, vallo atque fossa mcenia circumdat,'turres exstruit, easque presidiis firmat: prmaterea dies noctesque aut per vim, aut dolis tentare; defensoribus moenium prcomia modo, modo formidinem ostentare; suos hortando ad virtutem arrigere; prorsus intentus cuncta parare. Adherbal ubi intellegit omnes suas fortunas in extremo sitas, hostem infestum, auxilii spem nullam, penuria rerum necessariarum bellum trahi non posse, ex his, qui una Cirtam profugerant, duos, maxime impigros delegit; eos multa pollicendo ac miserando casuni suum con3

Page  20 20 C. CRISPI SALLUSITI firmat, uti per hostium munitiones noctu ad proximun mare, dein Romam pergerent. XXIV. Numidce paucis diebus jussa efficiunt; litters Adherbalis in senatu recitatse, quarum sententia haec fuit. "Non mea culpa saepe ad vos oratum mitto, patres conscripti, sed vis Jugurthas subigit, quem tanta libido exstinguendi me invasit, uti neque vos necue deos immortales in animo habe'at, sanguinem meum quam omnia malit. Itaque quintum jam menseml socius et amicus populi Romani armis obsessus teneor, neque mihi Micipsae patris mei beneficia; neque vestra decreta auxiliantur: ferro an fame acritis urgear, incertus sum. Plura de Jugurtha scribere dehortatur me fortuna mea, et jam antea expertus sum parum fidei mriseris esse: nisi tamen intelligo ilium supra, quam ego sum, petere, neque simul amicitiam vestram et regnum meum sperare: utrum gravius existimet, nemini occultumn est. Nam initio occidit Iliempsalem, fratrem meum, deinde patrio regno me expulit. Quae sane fuerint nostree injuriae, nihil ad vos. Verum nunc vestrum regnum armis tenet, me, quemn vos imperatorem Numidis posuistis, clausum obsidet; legatorum verba quanti fecerit, pericula mea declarant. - Quid reliquum, nisi vis vestra, quo moveri possit? Nam ego quidem vellem, et hrec, quao scribo, et illa, qum antea in senatu questus sum, vana forent potiis, quam miseria mea fidem verbis faceret. Sed quoniameo natus sum, ut Jugurtha? scelerum ostentui essem, non jam mortem neque arumnas, tantummodo inimici imperium et cruciatus corporis deprecor. Regno Numidixe, quod vestrum est, uti libet, consulite: me manibusimpiiseripite, per majestatem imperii, per amicitime fidem, si ulla npud vos memoria remanet avi mei Masinissae."

Page  21 JUGURTHA. 21 XXV. His litteris recitatis, fuere, qui'exercitum in Africam mittendum' censerent,' et quam primum Adherbali subveniendum: de Jugurtha interim utl consuleretur, qloniam legatis non paruisset.' Sed ab iisdem illis regis fautoribus summa ope enisum, ne tale decretum ficret. Ita bonum publicum, ut in plerisque negotiis solet, privata gratia devictum. Legantur tamen in Africam majores natu, nobiles, amplis honoribus usi; in quis fuit M. Scaurus, de quo supra memoravimus, consularis, et tune in senatu princeps. Hi, quod res in invidia erat, simul et ab Numidis obsecrati, triduo navim ascendere: deinde brevi Uticam appulsi litteras ad Jugurtham mittunt,'quam ocissime ad provinciam accedat, seque ad eum ab senatimissos.' Ille ubi accepit homines claros, quorum auctoritatem Roma pollere audiverat, contra inceptum suum venisse, primo commotus, metu atque libidine diversus agitabatur. Timebat iram senati, ni paruisset legatis: porro animus cupidine caecus ad inceptum scelus rapiebat. Vicit tamen in avido ingenio pravum consilium. Igitur, exercitu circumdato, summa vi Cirtam irrumpere nititur; maxime sperans, diducta manu hostium, aut vi aut dolis sese casum victorise inventurum. Quod ubi secus procedit, neque, quod intenderat, efficere potest, uti priuis, quam legatos conveniret, Adherbalis potiretur, ne amplius morando Scaurum, quem plurimum metuebat, incenderet, cum paucis equitibus in provinciamn venit. Ac tametsi senati verbis graves minm nuntiabantur, quod ab oppugnatione non desisteret, multa tamen oratione consumpta, legati frustra discessere. XXVI. Ea postquam Cirte audita sunt, Italici, quorum virtute mcenia defensabantur, confisi, deditione facta propter magnitudinem populi Romani inviolatos sese fore

Page  22 ~22 ~ C. CRISPI SALLUSTII Adherbali suadent;' uti seque et oppidum Jugurthae tradat; tantum ab co vitam paciscatur, de ceteris senatui curoe fore.' At ille, tametsi omnia potiora fide Jugurtha, rebatur, tamen, quia penes eosdem, si adversaretur, cogendi potestas erat, ita, uti censuerant Italici, deditionem facit. Jugurtha in primis Adherbalem excruciatum necat; deinde omnes puberes Numidas et negotiatores promiscue, uti quisque armatis obvius fuerat, interfecit. XXVII. Quod postquam Romoe cognitum est, et res in scnatu agitari ccepta; iidem illi ministri regis interpellando, ac saepe gratia interdum jurgiis trahendo tempus, atrocitatern facti leniebant. Ac ni C. Memmius, tribunus plebis designatus, vir acer et infestus potentiae nobilitatis, populum Romanum edocuisset't agi, uti per paucos factiosos Jugurthae scelus condonaretur,' profecto omnis invidia prolatandis consultationibus dilapsa foret: tanta vis gratiam atque pecuniee regis erat. Sed ubi senatus delicti conscientia populum timet, lege Sempronia provinciae futuris consulibus Numidia atque Italia decretae, consules declarati P. Scipio Nasica, L. Bestia Calpurnius. Calpurnio Numidia, Scipioni Italia obvenit. Deinde exercitus, qui in Africam portaretur, scribitur: stipendium aliaque, quse bello usui forent, decernuntur. XXVIII. At Jugurtha, contra spem nuntio accepto, quippe cui Romae omnia venum ire in animo hleseiat, filium et cum eo duos familiares ad senatum legatos mit. tit; hisque, ut illis, quos Hiempsale interfecto miserat, pracepit,'omnes mortales pecunia aggrediantur.' Qui postquam Romam adventabant, senatus a Bestia consultus est,'placeretne legatos Jugurthm recipi mcenibus: iique decrevere,'nisi regnum ipsumque deditum venissent. uti in diebus proximis decem Italia decederent

Page  23 JUGURTHA. 23 Consul Numidis ex senati decreto nuntiari jubet: ita infectis rebus illi domum discedunt. Interim Calpurnius, parato exercitu, legat sibi homines nobiles, factiosos, quorum auctoritate, quxe deliquisset, munita fore sperabat: in quis fuit Scaurus, cujus de natura et habitu supra memoravimus. Nam in consule nostro multme bonaeque artes animi et corporis erant, quas omnes avaritia prepediebat. Patiens laborum, acri ingenio, satis providens, belli haud ignarus, firmissimus contra pericula et insidias. Sed legiones per Italiam Rhegium atque inde Siciliam, porro ex Sicilia in Africam transvecta. Igitur Calpurnius initio, paratis commeatibus, acriter Numidiam ingressus est, multosque mortales et urbes aliquot pugnando cepit. XXIX. Sed ubi Jugurtha per legatos pecunia tentare, bellique, quod administrabat, asperitatem ostendere ccepit, animus cager avaritia facile conversus est. Ceterurn socius et administer omnium consiliorum assumitur Scaurus; qui tametsi a principio, plerisque ex factione ejus corruptis, acerrime regem impugnaverat, tamen magnitudine pecunim. a bono honestoque in pravum abstractus est. Sed Jugurtha primo tantummodo belli moram redimebat, existimans sese aliquid interim Roma pretio aut gratia effecturum; postea vero quam participem negotii Scaurum accepit, in maximam spem adductus recuperandae pacis, statuit cumn is de omnibus pactionibus praesens agere. Ceterum interea fidei causa mittitur a consule Sextius qusestor in oppidum Jugurthm Vaccam; cujus rei species erat acceptio frumenti, quod Calpurnius palam legatis imperaverat, quoniam deditioms morli inducise agitabantur. Igitur rex, uti constituerat, in castra venit; ac pauca, preesenti consilio, locutus 3*

Page  24 24 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII de invidia facti sui, atque in deditionem uti acciperetur. reliqua cum Bestia et Scauro secreta transigit: dein postero die, quasi per saturam exquisitis sententiis, in deditionem accipitur. Sed, uti pro consilio imperatum erat, elephanti triginta, pecus atque equi multi cum parvo argenti pondere quaestori traduntur. Calpurnius Romam ad magistratus rogandos proficiscitur. In Numidia et exercitu nostro pax agitabatur. XXX. Postquam res in Africa gestas, quoque modo acte forent, fama divulgavit, Romte per omnes locos et conventus de facto consulis agitari. Apud plebem gravis invidia; patres solliciti erant; probarentne tantum flagitium, an decretum consulis subverterent, parum constabat: ac maxime eos potentia Scauri, quod is auctor et socius Bestia ferebatur, a vero bonoque impediebat. At C. Memmius, cujus de libertate ingenii et odio potentice nobilitatis supra diximus,i(inter dubitationem et moras senati concionibus popuium ad vindicandum hortari, monere, ne rempublicam, ne libertatem suam desererent; multa superba et crudelia facinora nobilitatis ostendere' prorsus intentus omni modo plebis animum accendebat. Sed, quoniam ea tempestate Romeo Memmii facundia clara pollensque fuit, decere existimavi unam ex tam multis orationem ejus perscribere, ac potissimum ea dicam, que in concione post reditum Bestia hujuscemodi verbis disseruit. XXXI. "Multa me dehortantur a vobis, Quirites, ni studium reipublica omnia superet, opes factionis, vestra patientia, jus nullum, ac maxime, quod innocentia plus periculi quam honoris est. Nam illa quidem piget dicere, his annis quindecim quam ludibrio fueritis superbias paucorum; quam foede quamque inulti perierint

Sed quamquam haec talia sunt, tamen obviam ire factionis potentiae animus subigit. Certe ego libertatem, qua mihi a parente tradita est, experiar: verum id frustra an ob rem faciam, in vestra manu situm est, Quirites. Neque ego vos hortor, quod sepe majorcs vestri fecere, uti contra injurias armati eatis. Nihil vi, nihil secessione opus est: necesse est, suomet ipsi more praecipites eant. Occiso Tiberio Graccho, quem reg. num parare aiebant, in plebem Romanam quzestiones habitze sunt. Post C. Gracchi et M. Fulvii caedem, item vestri ordinis multi mortales in carcere necati sunt: utriusque cladis non lex, verutm libido eorum finem fecit. Sed sane fuerit regni paratio plebi sua restituere: quidquid sine sanguine civium ulcisci nequitur, jure facturn sit, Superioribus annis taciti indignabamini aerarium expilari, reges et populos liberos paucis nobilibus vectigal pendere, penes eosdem et summam gloriam, et maximas divitias esse: tamen hac talia facinora impune suscepisse parum habuere, itaque postrerno leges, majestas vestra, divina et humana omnia hostibus tradita sunt. Neque cos, qui ca fecere, pudet aut pcenitet, sed incedunt per ora vestra magnifici, sacerdotia et consulatus, pars triumphos sues ostentantes, perinde quasi ea honori, non praedw habeant. Servi were parati imperia injusta domino. rum non perferunt: vos, Quirites, imperio nati, equo animo servitutem toleratis? At qui sunt hi, qui rempublicanl occupavCre? Homines sceleratissimi, cruentis manibus, immani avaritia, nocentissimi iidemque superbissimi; quis fides, decus, pietas, postremo honesta atque inho

Ita quam quisque pcssime fecit, tam maxime tutus est; metum a scelere suo ad ignaviam vestram transtulere: quos omnes eadem cupere, eadem odisse, eadem metuere in unum coegit: sed haec inter bonos amicitia, inter malos factio est. Quod si tam vos libertatis curam haberetis, quam illi ad dominationem accensi sunt, profecto neque respublica, sicuti nunc, vastaretur, et beneficia vestra penes optimos, non audacissimos forent. Majores vestri parandi juris et majestatis constituende gratia bis per secessionem arrnati Aventinum occupavere: vos pro libertate, quam ab illis accepistis, non summa ope nitemini? atque eo vehementius, quod majus dedecus est parta amittere, quam omnino non paravisse. Dicet aliquis: "Quid igitur censes?" Vindicandum in eos, qui hosti prodidere rempublicam; non manu neque vi, quod magis vos fecisse quam illis accidisse indignum est, verum quaestionibus et indicio ip sius Jugurthae, qui si dedititius est, profecto jussis vestris obediens erit; sin ea contemnit, scilicet existimabitis qualis illa pax aut deditio sit, ex qua ad Jugurtham scelerum impunitas, ad paucos potentes maximae divitiae, in rempublicam damna atque dedecora pervenerint. Nisi forte nondum etiam vos dominationis eorum satietas tenet, et illa quam hEec tempora magis placent, quum regna, provinciae, leges, jura, judicia, bella, atque, paces, postremo divina et humana omnia penes paucos erant; vos autem, hoc est populus Romanus, invicti ab hostibus, imperatores omnium gentium, satis habebatis animam retinere; nar servitutem quidem quis vestrum recusare audebat? Atque ego, tametsi flagitiosissimum existimo impune injuriam

Page  27 JUGURTHA. 21 acceisse, tamen vos hominibus sceleratissimis ignoscere, quoniam cives sunt, sequo animo paterer, nisi misericordia in perniciem casura esset. Nam et illis, quantum importunitatis habent, parum est impune male fecisse, nisi deinde faciendi licentia eripitur, et vobis mterna sollicittdo remanebit, quum intelligetis aut serviendum esse, aut per rnanus libertatem retinendam. Nam fidei quidem aut concordise quze spes est? Dominari illi volunt, vos liberi esse; facere illi injurias, vos prohibere; postremo sociis vestris veluti hostibus, hostibus pro sociis utuntur. Potestne in tam diversis mentibus pax aut amicitia esse? Quare moneo hortorque vos, ne tantum scelus impunitum omittatis..-Non peculatus terarii factus est, neque per vim sociis ereptae pecunite; quse quamquam gravia sunt, tamen consuetudine jam pro nihilo habentur: hosti acerrimo prodita senati auctoritis, proditum imperium vestrum; domi militikeque respublica venalis fuit. Quae nisi quaesita erunt, ni vindicatum in noxios, quid erit reliquum, nisi ut illis, qui ea fecere, obedientes vivamus? nam impune qu3elibet facere, id est regem esse. Neque ego vos, Quirites, hortor, ut malitis cives vestros perperam quam rect6 fecisse, sed ne ignoscendo malis bonos perditum eatis. Ad hoc in republica multo praestat beneficii quam maleficii immemorem esse; bonus tantummodo segnior fit, ubi negligas, at malus improbior. Ad hoc si injuriae non sint, haud szepe auxilii egeas." XXXII. HaEc atque alia hujuscemodi scpe dicendo,.Memmius populo persuadet, uti L. Cassius, qui tune prUe. tor erat, ad Jugurtham mitteretur, eumque, interpositt fide publica, Romam duceret, quo facilius indicio regs, Scauri et reliquorum, quos pecunia captae arcessebant, delicta patefierent. Dum hlec Romae geruntur, qui in

Page  28 28 CC. CRISPI SALLUSTII Numidia' relicti a Bestia exercitui prveerant, secuti morenl imperatoris sui, plurima et flagitiosissima facinora fecire. Fuere, qui auro corrupti elephantos Jugurthae traderent: alii perfugas vendere, pars ex pacatis praedas agebant: tanta vis avaritime animos eorum veluti tabes invaserat. At Cassius, perlata rogatione a C. Memmio, ac perculs omni nobilitate, ad Jugurtham proficiscitur; ~Eque timido et ex conscientia diffidenti rebus suis persuadet,'quoniam se populo Romano dedidisset, ne vim quam misericordiam ejus experiri mallet.' Privatim prseterea fidem suam interponit, quam ille non minoris quam publicam ducebat. Talis ea tempestate fama de Cassio erat. XXXIII. Igitur Jugurtha, contra decus regium, cultu quam maxime miserabili cum Cassio Romam venit. Ac tametsi in ipso magna vis animi erat, confirmatus ab omnibus, quorum potentia aut scelere cuncta ea gesserat, quT supra diximus C. Baebium tribunum plebis magna mercede parat, cujus impudentia contra jus et injurias omnes munitus foret. At C. Memmius, advocata concione, quamquam regi infesta plebes erat, et pars'in vincula duci' jubebat, pars,' ni socios sceleris sui aperiret, more majorum de hoste supplicium sumi,' dignitati quam irme magis consulens, sedare motus, et animos eorum mollire; postremo confirmare'fidem publicam per sese inviolatam fore.'

Si verum aperiat, in fide et clementia populi Romani magnam spem illi sitam: sin reticeat, non sociis saluti-fore, sed se suasque spes corrupturum.'

Page  29 JUGURTHA. 29 XXXIV. Deinde, ubi Memmius dicendi finem fecit, et Jugurtha respondere jussus est, C Baebius tribunus plebis, quem pecunia corruptum supra diximus, regem tacere jubet: ac tametsi multitudo, quae in concione aderat, vehementer accensa terrebat eum clamore, vultu, saepe impetu atque aliis omnibus, qume ira fieri amat, vicit tamen impudentia. Ita populus ludibrio habitus ex concione discedit: Jugurthae Bestiamque et ceteris, quos illa quaestio exagitabat, animi augescunt. XXXV. Erat ea tempestate Romm Numida quidam, nomine Massiva, Gulussae filius, Masinissse nepos; qui, quia, in dissensione regum Jugurthae adversus fuerat, dedita Cirta, et Adherbale interfecto, profugus ex Africa abierat. Huic Sp. Albinus, qui proximo anno post Bestiam cum Q. Minucio Rufo consulatum gerebat, persuadet,' quoniam ex stirpe Masinissee sit, Jugurthamque ob scelera invidia cum metu urgeat, regnum Numidie ab senatu petat.' Avidus consul belli gerendi moveri, quam senescere omnia malebat; ipsi provincia Numidia, Minucio Macedonia evenerat.'Que postquam Massiva agitare cepit, neque Jugurthe in amicis satis presidii est, quod eorum alium conscientia, alium mala fama et timor impediebat, Bomilcari, proximo ac maxime fido sibi, imperat,'pretio,' sicuti multa confecerat,'insidia. tores Massivae paret, ac maxime occultS, sin id parum procedat, quovis modo Numidam interficiat.' Bomilcar mature regis mandata exsequitur; et per homines talis negotii artifices itinera egressusque ejus, postremo loca atque tempora cuncta explorat; deinde, ubi res postulabat, insidias tendit. Igitur unus ex eo numero, qui ad caedem parati erant, paulo inconsultiis Massivamaggreditur, illum obtruncat; sed ipse deprehensus, multis hor

At Jugurtha manifestus tanti sceleris non prius omisit contra verum niti, quam animum advertit supra gratiam atque pecuniar suam invidiam facti esse. Igitur, quamquam in priore actione ex amicis quinquaginta vades dederat, regno magis quam vadibus consulens clam in Numidiam Bomilcarem dimittit, veritus ne reliquos populares metus invaderet parendi sibi, si de illo supplicium sumptum foret, et ipse paucis diebus profectus est, jussus ab senatu Italia decedere. Sed postquam Roma egressusest,fertur smepe e6 tacitus respiciens postremo dixisse:' urbem venalem et mature perituram, si emptorem invenerit.' XXXVI. Interim Albinus, renovato bello, commeatum, stipendium aliaque, qume militibus usui forent, maturat in Africam portare; ac statim ipse profectus, uti ante comitia, quod tempus haud longe aberat, armis aut deditione aut quovis modo bellum conficeret. At contra Jugurtha trahere omnia, et alias, deinde alias moree causas facere; polliceri deditionem, ac deinde metum simulare; instanti cedere, et paulo post, ne sui diffiderent, instare: ita belli modo, modo pacis mora consulem ludificare. Ac fuire, qui tum Albinum haud ignarum consilii regis existimarent; neque ex tanta properantia tam facile tractumn bellum socordia magis quam dolo crederent. Sed postquam, dilapso tempore, comitiorum dies adventabat, Albinus, Aulo fratre in castris pro prcetore relicto, Romam decessit. XXXVII. Ea tempestate Romas seditionibus tribuniciis atrociter respublica agitabatur. P. Lucullus et L.

Page  31 JUGURTHA. 31 Annius, tribuni plebis, resistentibus collegis, continuare magistratum nitebantur: qute dissensio totius anni comitia impediebat. Ea mora in spem adductus Aulus, quern pro prietore in castris relictum supra diximus, aut confiieendi belli aut terrore exercitus ab rege pecunia capiendae, milites mense Januario ex hibernis in expeditionenl evocat, rrmagnisque itineribus, hieme aspera, pervenit ad oppidum Suthul, ubi regis thesauri erant. Quod quaniquam et saevitia temporis et opportunitate loci neque capi neque obsideri poterat; nam circum murum, situm in praerupti montis extremo, planities limosa hiemalibus aquis paludem fecerat; tamen, aut simulandi gratia, quo regi formidinem adderet, aut cupidine caocus ob thesauros oppidi potiundi, vineas agere, aggerem jacere, aliaque, quae incepto usui forent, properare. XXXVIII. At Jugurtha, cognita vanitate atque imperitia legati, subdolus ejus augere amentiam, missitare supplicantes legatos, ipse quasi vitabundus per saltuosa loca et tramites exercitum ductare. Denique Aulum spe pactionis perpulit, uti, relicto Suthule, in abditas regiones sese veluti cedentem insequeretur:'ita delicta occultiora fore.' Interea per horines callidos die noctuque exercitum tentabat; centuriones ducesque turmarum, partim uti transfugerent, corrumpere; alii, signo dato, locum uti desererent. Quae postquam ex sententia instruit, intempesta nocte de improviso multitudine Numidarum Auli castra circumvenit. Milites Romani, perculsi tumultu insolito, arma capere alii, alii se abdere, pars territos confirmare; trepidare omnibus locis vis magna hostium, celum nocte atque nubibus obscuratum, periculum anceps: postremo fugere an manere tutius foret, in incerto erat. Sed ex eo numero, quos 4

Page  32 32 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII paulo ante corruptos diximus, cohors una Ligurum cum duabus turmis Thracum et paucis gregariis militibus transierc ad regem, et centurio primi pili tertiee legionis per munitionem, quarn, uti defenderet, acceperat, locum hostibus introeundi dedit, eaque Numide cuncti irrupere. Nostri fceda fuga, plerique abjectis armis proximum collem occupavere. Nox atque prmeda castrorum hostes, quo.minus victoria uterentur, remorata sunt. Deinde Jugurtha postero die cum Aulo in colloquio verlba facit:'tametsi ipsum cum exercitu fame ferroque clausum tenet, tamen se humanarum rerum memorem, si secum fredus faceret, incolumes omnes sub jugum missurum: prmeterea, uti diebus decem Numidia dlcederet.' Quae quamquam gravih et flagitii plena erant, tamen, quia mortis metu mutabant, sicuti regi libuerat, pax convenit. XXXIX. Sed ubi ea Romie comperta sunt, metus atque mceror civitatem invasdre. Pars dolere pro gloria imperii, pars insolita rerum bellicarum timere libertati: Aulo omnes infesti, ac maxime, qui bello ssepe preciari fuerant, quod armatus dedecore potiuis quam manu salutem quaesiverat. Ob ea consul Albinus ex delicto fratris invidiam ac deinde periculum timens, senatum de fcedere consulebat; et tamen interim exercitui supplementum scribere, ab sociis et nomine Latino auxilia arcessere, denique modis omnibus festinare. Senatus ita, uti par fuerat, decernit,'suo atque populi injussu nullum potuisse fcedus fieri.' Consul impeditus a tribunis plebis, ne, quas paraverat copias, secum portarct, paucis diebus in Africam proficiscitur: nam omnis ex'ercitus, uti convenerat, Numidia deductus, in provincia hiemabat. Postquam eo venit, quamquam persequi Ju

XL. Interea Romse C. Mamilius Limetanus tribunus plebis rogationem ad populum promulgat,' Uti quaereretur in eos, quorum consilio Jugurtha senati decreta neglexisset; quique ab eo in legationibus aut imperiis pecunias accepissent; qui elephantos, quique perfugas tradidissent; item, qui de pace aut bello cum hostibus pactiones fecissent.' Huic rogationi partim conscii sibi, alii ex partium invidia pericula metuentes, quoniam aperte resistere non poterant, quin illa et alia talia placere sibi faterentur. occulte per amicos, ac maxime per homines nominis Latini et socios Italicos impedimenta parabant. Sed plebes incredibile memoratu est, quam intenta fuerit, quantaque vi rogationem jusserit, decreverit, voluerit, magis odio nobilitatis, cui mala illa parabantur, quam cura reipublicae: tanta libido in pajtibus erat.ylgitur ceteris metu perculsis, M. Scaurus, quem legatum Bestir fuisse supra docuimus, inter lketitiam plebis et suorum fugam, trepida etiamtum civitate, qnum ex Mamilii rogatione tres qusesitores rogarentur, effecerat, uti ipse in eo numero crearetur. Sed quoestio exercita aspere violenterque, ex rumore et libidine plebis. Ut swpe nobilitatem, sic ea tempestate plebem ex secundis rebus insolentia ceperat. XLI. Ceteruim mos partium popularium et senati factionum, ac deinde omnium malarum artium, paucis ante annis Romae ortus est, otio et abundantia earum rerum, qurI prima mortales ducunt. Nam ante Carthaginem deletam populus et senatus Romanus placide modesteque inter se rempublicam tractabant: neque glorim neque

Page  34 34 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII dominationis certamen inter cives erat: metus hostilis in bonis artibus civitatem retinebat. Sed ubi illa fornido mentibus decessit, scilicet ea, quaw secundae res amant, lascivia atque superbia incessere. Ita, quod in advcrsis rebus optaverant otium, postquam adepti sunt, asperius acerbiusque fuit. Namque ccepere nobilitas dignitatem in dominationem, populus libertatem in libidinem vertere: sibi quisque ducere, trahere, rapere. Ita omnia in duas partes abstracta sunt; respublica, quas media fierat, dilacerata. Ceterum nobilitas factione magis pollebat; plebis vis, soluta atque dispersa in multitudine, minus poterat. Paucorum arbitrio belli domique agitabatur; penes eosdem zerarium, provincise, magistratus, gloriam triumphique erant; populus militia atque inopia urgebatur. Praedas bellicas imperatores cum paucis diripiebant: interea parentes aut parvi liberi militum, ut quisque potentiori confinis erat, sedibus pellebantur. Ita cum potentia avaritia sine modo modestiaque invadere, polluere et vastare omnia, nihil pensi neque salcti habere, quoad semet ipsa praecipitavit. Nam ubi primium ex nobilitate reperti sunt, qui veram gloriam injustapotentite anteponerent, moveri civitas, et dissensio civilis, quasi permixtio terrae, oriri cacpit. XLII. Nam postquam Tiberius et C. Gracchus, quorum najores Punico atque aliis bellis multum reipublicae addiderant, vindicare plebem in libertatem, et paucorurn scelera patefacere ccepere, nobilitas noxia, atque eo perculsa, rnodo per socios ac nomen Latinum, interdum per equites Romanos, quos spes societatis a plebe dimoverat, Gracchorum actionibus obviam ierat; et primno Tiberium, dein paucos post annos eadem ingredientem Caium tribunum alterum, alterum triumvirum coloniis deducen

Page  35 JUGURTHA. 35 dis, cum M. Fulvio Flacco ferro necaverat. Et sane Grracchis cupidine victoriae haud satis modoratus animus fuit: sed bono vinci satius est, quam malo more injuriam vincere. Igitur ea victoria nobilitas ex libidine suL usa, inultos mortales ferro aut fuga exstinxit; plusque in reliquum sibi timoris quam potentiae addidit. Quee res pleruimque magnas civitates pessum dedit, dum alteri alteros vincere quovis modo, et victos acerbiuis ulcisci volunt. Sed de studiis partium et omnis civitatis moribus si singulatim aut pro magnitudine parem diserere, tempus quam res maturiuis me deseret: quamobrem ad inceptum redeo. XLIII. Post Auli fcedus exercitusque nostri fcedam fugam, Q. Metellus et M. Silanus, consules designati, provincias inter se partiverant, Metelloque Numidia evenerat, acri viro, et, quamquam adverso populi partium, fama tamen equabili et inviolata. Is ubi primuim magistratum ingressus est, alia omnia sibi cum collega ratus, ad bellum, quod gesturus erat,'animum intendit. Igitur diffidens veteri exercitui, milites scribere, presidia undique arcessere, arma, tela, equos et cetera instrumenta militias parare, ad hoc commeatum affatim, denique omnia, quae in bello vario et multarum rerum egenti usui esse solent. Ceterum ad ea patranda, senatus auctoritate socii nomenque Latinum et reges ultro auxilia mittere; postrem6 ornis civitas summo studio adnitebatur. Itaque, ex sententia omnibus rebus paratis compositisque, in Nurmidiam proficiscitur magna spe civium, quum propter bonas artes, tum maxime, quod adversuim divitias invictum animum gerebat; et avaritia magistratuum ante id ternpus in Numidia nostrae opes contusae, hostiumque auctee erant. 4*

Page  36 36 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII XLIV. Sed ubi in Africam venit, exercitus ei traditur Sp. Albini proconsulis inert, imbellis, neque periculi neque laboris patiens, lingua quam manu promptior praedator ex sociis et ipse praeda hostium, sine imperio et modestia habitus. Ita imperatori novo plus ex malis moribus sollicitudinis, quam ex copia militum auxilii aut bonme spei accedebat. Statuit tamen Metellus, quamquam et eestivorum tempus comitiorum mora imminuerat, et exspectatione eventus civium animos intentos putabat, non prius bellum attingere, quam majorum disciplina milites laborare coegisset. Nam Albinus, Auli fratris exercitusque clade perculsus, postquam decreverat non egredi provincia, quantum temporis estivorum in imperio fuit, pleruimque milites stativis castris habebat; nisi quum odos aut pabuli egestas locum mutare subegerat. Sed neque muniebantur ea, neque more militari vigilise deducebantur: uti cuique libebat, ab signis aberat. Lixae permixti cum militibus die noctuque vagabantur, et palantes agros vastare, villas expugnare, pecoris et mancipiorum predas certantes agere, eaque mutare cum mercatoribus vino advectitio et aliis talibus; prrterea frumentum publice datum vendere, panem in dies mercari: postremo, qusecumque dici aut fingi queunt ignavia3 luxuriaeque probra, in illo exercitu cuncta fuere, et alia amplius. XLV. Sed in ea difficultate Metellum non minius quam in rebus hostilibus magnum et sapientem vil um fuisse comperior, tanta temperantia inter ambitionem scevitiamque moderatum. Namque edicto primum adjumenta ignavia sustulisse;'ne quisquam in castris panem aut quemn alium coctum cibum venderet; ne lixae exercitum sequerentur; ne miles gregarius in cas

Praeterea transversis itineribus quotidie castra movere, juxta ac si hostes adessent, vallo atque fossa munire, vigilias crebras ponere, et eas ipse cum legatis circumire: item in agmine in primis modo, modo in postremis, saepe in medio adesse, ne quisquam ordine egrederetur, uti cum signis frequentes incederent, miles cibum et arma portaret. Ita prohibendo a delictis magis quam vindicando exercitum brevi confirmavit. XLVI. Interea Jugurtha, ubi, que Metellus agebat, ex nuntiis accepit, simul de innocentia ejus certior Roma factus, diffidere suis rebus; ac tum demum veramdedit. ionem facere conatus est. Igitur legatos ad consulern cum suppliciis mittit, qui tantummodo ipsi liberisque vitam peterent, alia omnia dederent populo Romano. Sed Metello jam antea experimentis cognitum erat genus Numidarum infidum, ingenio mobili, novarum rerum avidum esse. Itaque legatos alium ab alio diversos aggreditur; ac paulatim tentando, postquam opportunos sibi cognovit, multa pollicendo persuadet,' uti Jugurtham maxime vivum, sin id parum procedat, necatum slbi traderent:' ceterfim palam, qume ex voluntate forent, regi nuntiari jubet. Deinde ipse paucis diebus, intento atque infesto exercitu, in Numidiam procedit; ubi, contra belli faciem, tuguria plena hominum, pecora cultoresque in agris erant; ex oppidis et mapalibus prefecti regis obvii procedebant, parati frumenturn dare, commeatum portare, postremo omnia, lque imperarentur, facere. Neque Metellus idcirco minus, sed pariter ac si hostes adessent, munito agmine incedere, lath explorare omnia, illa deditionis signa ostentui credere, et insidiis locum tentari. Itaque ipse cum expeditis cohorti

Page  38 38 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII bus, item funditorum et sagittariorum delecta manu apud primos erat; in posaremo C. Marius legatus curn equitibus curabat: in utrumque latus auxiliarios equites tribunis legionum et praefectis cohortium dispertiverat, uti cum his permixti velites, quacunque accederent equitatus hostium, propulsarent. Nam in Jugurtha tantus dolus tantaque peritia locorum et militiae erat, ut, absens an prsesens, pacem an bellur gerens perniciosior esset, in incerto haberetir. XLVII. Erat haud longe ab eo itinere, quo Metellus pergebat, oppidum Numidarum, nomine Vacca, forum rerum venalium totius regni maxime celebratum; ubi et incolere et mercari consueverant Italici generis multi mortales. Huc consul, sirnul tentandi gratia, et, si paterentur, opportunitate loci presidium imposuit; praeterea imperavit frumentum et alia, quce bello usui forent, comportare;: ratus, id quod res monebat,,frequentiam negotiatorum et commeatum juvaturum exercitum, et jam paratis rebus munimento fore. Inter haec negotia Jugurtha impensius modo legatos supplices mittere, pacem orare, praiter suam liberorumque vitam omnia Metello dedere. Quos item, uti priores, consul illectos ad proditionem domum dimittebat: regi pacem, quam postulabat, neque abnuere neque polliceri, et inter eas moras promissa legatorum exspectare. XLVIII. Jugurtha ubi Metelli dicta cum factis composuit, ac se suis artibus tentari animadvertit; quippe cui verbis pax nuntiabatur, ceterum re bellum asperrimum erat, urbs maxima alienata, ager hostibus cognitus, animi popularium tentati; coactus rerum necessitudine, statuit armis certare. Igitur explorato hostium itinere, in spem victoriae adductus ex opportunitate loci, quam maximas potest copias omnium generum parat, ac per

Page  39 JUGURTHA. 39 tramites occultos exercitum Metelli antevenit. Erat in ea parte Numidi., quam Adherbal in divisione possederat, flumen oriens a meridie, nomine Muthul; a quo aberat mons ferme millia viginti, tractu pari, vastus ab natura et humano cultu: sed ex eo medio quasi collis oriehatur, in immensum pertingens, vestitus oleastro ac myrtetis aliisque generibus arborum, ~qe humi arido atque arenoso gignuntur. Media autem planities deserta penuria aquae, prieter flumini propinqua loca; ea consita arbustis pecore atque cultoribus frequentabantur, XLIX. Igitur in eo colle, quem transverso itinere porrectum docuimus, Jugurtha, extenuata suorum acie, consedit: elephantis et parti copiarum pedestrium Bomilcarem prsefecit, eumque edocet, que ageret; ipse propior montem cum omni equitatu pedites delectos collocat: dein singulas turmas atque manipulos circumiens monet atque obtestatur,' uti memores pristine virtutis et victoria sese regnumque suum ab Romanorum avaritia defendant: cum his certamen fore, quos antea victos sub jugum miserint. ducem illis, non animum mutatum. Qume ab imperatore decuerint, omnia suis provisa; locum superiorem, uti prudentes cum imperitis, ne pauciores cum pluribus, aut rudes cum bello melioribus manum consererent. Proinde parati intenticque essent, signo dato, Romanos invadere: illum diem aut omnes labores et victorias confirmaturum, aut maximarum verumnarum initium fore.' Ad hoc viritim, uti quemque ob militare facinus pecunia aut honore extulerat, commonefacete beneficii sui, et eum ipsum aliis ostentare: postremo pro cujL'sque ingenio, pollicendo, minitando, obtestando alium alio modo excitare; quum interim Metellus, ignarus hostium, monte degrediens cum exercitu, conspica

Page  40 40 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII tur, primo dubius, quidnam insolita facies ostenderet, (nam inter virgulta equi Numideque consederant, neque plane occultati humilitate arborum, et tamen incerti, quidnam esset, quum natura loci, turn dolo ipsi atque signa militaria obscurati); dein, brevi cognitis insidiis, paulisper agmen constituit. Ibi commutatis ordinibus, in dextero latere, quod proximum hostes.erat, triplicibus subsidiis aciem instruxit; inter manipulos funditores et sagittarios dispertit, equitatum omnem in cornibus locat, ac pauca pro tempore milites hortatus, aciem, sicuti instruxerat, transversis principiis, in planum deducit. L. Sed ubi Numidas quietos, neque colle degredi animadvertit, veritus ex anni tempore et inopia aquae, ne siti conficeretur exercitus, Rutilium legatum cum expeditis cohortibus et parte equitum praemisit ad fumen, ut locum castris antecaperet; existimans hostes crebro impetu et transversis prceliis iter suum remoraturos, et, quoniam armis diffiderent, lassitudinem et sitim militum tentaturos. Deinde ipse pro re atque loco, sicuti monte descenderat, paulatim procedere: Marium post principia habere: ipse cum sinistrse alae equitibus esse, qui in agmine principes facti erant. At Jugurtha, ubi extremum agmen Metelli primos suos praetergressum videt, prassidio quasi duum millium peditum montem occupat, qua Metellus descenderat, ne forte cedentibus adversariis receptui ac post munimento foret; dcin repente, signo dato, hostes invadit. Numidae, alii postremos caedere, pars a sinistra ac dextera tentare, infensi adesse atque instare, omnibus locis Romanorum ordines conturbare; quorum etiam qui firnioribus animis obvii hostibus fuerant, ludificati incerto prcelio, ipsi rnodo eminus sauciabantur neque contra feriendi aut manum conserendi copia erat

Page  41 JUGURTHA. 41 Antea jam docti ab Jugurtha equites, ubicumque Rom. anorurn turma insequi cceperat, non confertim, neque in unum sese recipiebant, sed alius alio quam maxime divcrsi. Ita numero priores, si a persequendo hostes deterrere nequiverant, disjectos ab tergo aut lateribus circumveniebant: sin opportunior fugae collis, quam campi fuerant, ea vero consueti Numidarum equi facile inter virgulta evadere; nostros asperitas et insolentia loci retinebat. LI. Ceterim facies totius negotii varia, incerta, fceda atque miserabilis: dispersi a suis, pars cedere, alii insequi; neque signa neque ordines observare; ubi quemque periculum ceperat, lbi resistero ac propulsare: arma tela, equi viri, hostes atque cives permixti; nihil consilio neque imperio agi; fors omnia regere. Itaque multum diei processerat, quum etiamtum eventus in incerto erat Denique omnibus labore et sestu languidis, Metellus, ubi videt Numidas minus instare, paulatim milites in unum conducit, ordines restituit, et cohortes legionarias quatuor adversum pedites hostium collocat. Eorum magna pars superioribus locis fessa consederat Simul orare, hortari milites,'ne deficerent, neu paterentur hostes fugientes vincere: neque illis castra esse, neque munimentum ullum, quo cedentes tenderent: in armis omnia sita.' Sed nec Jugurtha quidem interea quietus erat; circumire, hortari, renovare prcelium,,et ipse cum delectis tentare omnia, subvenire suis, hostibus dubiis instare, quosfirmoscognoverat, eminus pugnando retinere. LII. Eo modo inter se duo imperatores, summi viri, certabant, ipsi pares, ceterum opibus disparibus: nam Metello virtus militum erat, locus adversus; Jugurth2e alia omnia praeter milites opportuna. Denique Ro

Amisso loco, Numidwe fusi fugatique: pauci interiere, plerosque velocitas et regio hostibus ignara tutata sunt. Interea Bomilcar, quem elephantis et parti copiarum pedestriurn praefectum ab Jugurtha supra diximus, ubi eum Rutilius praetergressus est, paulatim suos in sequum locum deducit: ac, dum legatus ad flumen, quo preemissus erat, festinans pergit, quietus, uti res postulabat, aciem exornat; neque remittit, quid ubique hostis ageret, explorare. Postquam Rutilium consedisse jam, et animo vacuum accepit, simulque ex Jugurthee prcelio clamorem augeri, veritus, ne legatus, cognita re, laborantibus suis auxilio foret, aciem, quam,: diffidens virtuti militum, art6 statuerat, quo hostium itineri officeret, latius porrigft, eoque modo ad Rutilii castra-procedit. LIII. Romani ex improviso pulveris vim magnam animadvertunt, nam prospectum ager arbustis consitus prohibebat; et primo rati humum aridam vento agitari; post, ubi equabilem manere, et, sicuti acies movebatur, magis magisque appropinquare.vident, cognitA re, properantes arma capiunt, ac pro castris, sicuti imperabatur, consistunt.

Elephanti quatuor capti, reliqui omnes, numero quadraginta, interfecti. At Romani, quamquam itinere atque opere castrorum et prcelio fessi lassique

Page  43 JUGURTHA. 43 erant, tamen, quod Metellus amplius opinione morabatur, instructi intentique obviam procedunt: nam dolus Numidarum nihil languidi neque remissi patiebatur. Ac prirno, obscura nocte, postquam baud procul inter se erant, strepitu, velut hostes, adventare, alteri apud alteros formidinem simul et tumultum facere: et pene imprudentia admissum facinus miserabile, ni utrimque preemissi equites rem exploravissent. Igitur pro metu repente gaudium exortum; milites alius alium laeti appellant, acta edocent atque audiunt; sua quisque fortia facta ad ccelum ferre. Quippe res humanae ita sese habent: in victoria vel ignavis gloriari licet; adversac res etiam bonos detrectant. LIV. Metellus, in iisdem castris quatriduo moratus, saucios cum cura reficit, meritos in preliis more militia donat, universos in concione laudat, atque agit gratias: hortatur,'ad cetera, quee tlevia sunt, parem animum gerant: pro victoria satis jam pugnatum, reliquos labores pro praeda fore.' Tamen interim transfugas et alios opportunos, Jugurtha ubi gentium, aut quid agitaret, cum paucisne esset, an exercitum haberet, uti sese victus gereret, exploratum misit. At ille sese in loca saltuosa et natura munita receperat, ibique cogebat exercitum numero hominum ampliorem, sed hebetem infirmumque, agri ac pecoris magis quam belli cultoreMi. Id ea gratia eveniebat, quod proeter regios equites nemo omnium Numidarum ex fuga regem sequitur; quo cujusque animus fert, eo discedunt, neque id flagitium militime ducitur; ita se mores habent. Igitur Metellus ubi videt etiamtum regis animum ferocem esse, bellum renovan, quod nisi ex illius libidine geri non posset, praeterea iniquum certamen sibi cum hostibus, minore detrimento 5

Page  44 44 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII illos vinci, quam suos vincere, statuit non prceliis neque acie, sed alio more bellum gerendum. Itaque in Numid.ie loca opulentissima pergit, agros vastat, multa castella ct oppida, temere munita aut sine prmesidio, capit incenditque; puberes interfici jubet, alia omnia militum praedam esse. Ea formidine multi mortales Romanis dediti obsides; frurnentum et alia, quae usui forent, affatim praebita; ubicumque res postulabat, presidium inpositum. Quaw negotia multo magis, quam prcelium inale pugnatum ab suis, regem terrebant: quippe cui spes omnis in fuga sita erat, sequi cogebatur; et, qui sua loca defendere nequiverat, in alienis bellum gerere. Tamen ex copia, quod optimum videbatur, consilium capit: exercitum plerumque in iisdem locis opperiri jubet; ipse cum delectis equitibus Metellum sequitur, nocturnis et aviis itineribus ignoratus Romanos palantes repente aggreditur. Eorum plerique inermes cadunt, multi capiuntur, nemo omnium intactus profugit; et Numidiae, priusquam ex castris subveniretur, sicuti jussi erant, in proximos coles discedunt. LV. Interim Romae gaudium ingens ortum, cognitis Metelli rebus; ut seque et exercitum more majorum gereret, in adverso loco victor tamen virtute fuisset, hostium agro potiretur, Jugurtham, magnificum ex Auli socordia, spem salutis in solitudine aut fuga coegisset habere. Itaque senatus ob ea feliciter acta dis immortalibus supplicia decernere; civitas, trepida antea et sollicita de belli eventu, leta agere; de Metello fama prae clara esse. Igitur eo intentior ad victoriam niti, omnibus modis festinare; cavere tamen, necubi hosti opportunus fieret; meminisse, post gloriam invidiam seqdi. Ita quo clarior eo magis anxius erat, neque post insidias Ju

Sed igni magis quam praeda ager vastabatur. Duobus locis haud longe inter se castra faciebant: ubi vi opus erat, cuncti aderant; ceterim, quo fuga atque formido latiuts cresceret, diversi agebant. Eo tempore Jugurtha per colles sequi, tempus aut locum pugnm quaerere, qua venturum hostem audierat, pabulum et aquarum fontes, quorum penuria erat, corrumpere, modo se Metello, interdum Mario ostendere, postremos in agmine tentare, ac statim in colles regredi, rursus aliis, post aliis minitari,neque prcelium facere, neque otium pati, tantummodo hostem ab incepto retinere. LVI. Romanus imperator ubi se dolis fatigari videt, neque ab hoste copiam pugnandi fieri, urbem magnam et in ea parte, QU'& sita erat, arcem regni, nomine Zamam, statuit oppugnare; ratus, id quod negotium poscebat, Jugurtham laborantibus suis auxilio venturum, ibique prcelium fore. At ille, que parabantur, a perfugis edoctus, magnis itineribus Metellum antevenit; oppidanos hortatur,' mcnia defendant;' additis auxilio perfugis, quod genus ex copiis regis, quia fallere nequibat, firmissimum erat: proeterea pollicetur,' in tempore semet cum exercitu affore.' Ita compositis rebus, in loca quam maxime occulta discedit, ac post paulo cognoscit Marium ex itinere frumentatum cum paucis cohortibus Sic. cam missurnm; quod oppidum primum omnium post ma]am pugnam ab rege defecerat. Eo cum delectis equitlbus noctu pergit, et jam egredientibus Romanis, in pcrta pugnam facit: simul magna voce Siccenses hortatur uti cohortes ab tergo circumveniant: fortunam illis praT

Ac ni Marius signa inferre atque evadere oppido properavis set, profecto cuncti aut magna pars Siccensium fidem mutavissent: tanta mobilitate sese Numidoe agunt. Sed milites Juglrthini, paulisper ab rege sustentati, postquam majore vi hostes urgent, paucis amissis, profugi discedunt. LVII. Marius ad Zaram pervenit. Id oppidum, in campo situm, magis opere quam natura munitum erat, nullius idonee rei egens, armis virisque opulentum. Igitur Metellus, pro tempore atque loco paratis rebus, cuncta maenia exercitu circumvenit; legatis imperat, ubi quisque curaret; deinde, signo dato, undique simul clamor ingens oritur. Neque ea res Numidas terret; infensi intentique sine tumultu manent. Prcelium incipitur. Romani, pro ingenio quisque, pars eminus glande aut lapidibus pugnare, alii succedere, ac murum modo suffodere, modo scalis aggredi, cupere prcelium manibus facere. Contra ea oppidani in proximos saxa volvere; sudes, pila, prmeterea pice et sulphure tedam mixtam, ardenti mittere. Sed ne illos quidem, qui procul manserant, timor anrmi satis muniverat: nam plerosque jacula tormentis aut manu emissa vulnerabant; pariquepericulo, sed fama impari boni atque ignavi erant. LVIII. Dum apud Zamam sic certatur, Jugurtha ex improvise castra hostium cum magna manu invadit: remissis, qui in preesidio erant, et omnia magis quam proelium exspectantibus, portam irrumpit. At nostri, repentino metu perculsi, sibi quisque pro moribus consulunt: alii fugere, alii arma capere; magna pars vulnerati aut occisi. Ceteruim ex omni multitudine non

Interim letellus, quum acerrime rem gereret, clamorem hostilem ab tergo accepit: deinde, converso equo, animadvertit fugam ad se versum fieri; qum res indicabat populares esse. Igitur equitafum omnem ad castra propere mittit, ac statim C. AMarium cum cohortibus sociorum; eumque lacrymans per amicitiam perque rempublicam obsecrat,'ne quam contumeliam remanere in exercitu victore, neve hostes inultos abire sinat.' Ille brevi mandata efficit. At Jugurtha munimento castrorum impeditus, quum alii super vallum praecipitarentur, alii in angustiis ipsi sibi properantes officerent, multis amissis, in loca munita sese recepit. Metellus, infecto negotio, postquam nox aderat, in castra cum exercitu revertitur. LIX. Igitur postero die, prius quam ad oppugnandum egrederetur, equitatum omnem in ea parte, qua regis adventus erat, pro castris agitare jubet; portas et proxima loca tribunis dispertit; deinde ipse pergit ad oppidum, atque, ut superiore die, murum aggreditur. Interim Jugurtha ex. occulto repente nostros invadit. Qui in proxirno locati fuerant, paulisper territi perturbantur; reliqui cito subveniunt, neque diutius Numidme resistero. quivissent, ni pedites cum equitibus permixti magnam cladem in congressu facerent. Quibus illi freti, non, ut equestri prcelio solet, sequi, dein cedere, sed adversis equis concurrere, implicare ac perturbare aciem: ita expeditis oeditibus suis hostes pene victos dare. 5 *

Page  48 48 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII LX. Eodem tempore apud Zamam magna vi certabatur. Ubi quisque legatus aut tribunus curabat, eo acerrime niti; neque alius in alio magis quam in sese spem habere: pariterque oppidani agere. Oppugnare, aut parare onnibus locis: avidius alteri alteros sauciare, quam semet tegere: clamor permixtus hortatione, letitia,gemitu, item strepitus armorum ad ccelum ferri, tela utrimque volare. Sed illi, qui mcenia defensabant, ubi hostes paulum modo pugnam remiserant, intenti prcelium equestre prospectabant. Eos, uti qumeque Jugurthae res erant, ketos modo, modo pavidos animadvcrteres; ac sicuti audiri a suis aut cerni possent, monere alii, alii hortari, aut manu significare, aut niti corporibus, et ea huc illuc, quasi vitabundi aut jacientes tela, agitare. Quod ubi Mario cognitum est, (nam is in ea parte curabat), consulto lenius agere, ac diffidentiam rei simulare; pati Numida-s sine tumultu regis prcelium visere. Ita, illis studio suorum adstrictis, repente magna vi murum aggreditur; et jam scalis egressi milites prope summa ceperant: quum oppidani concurrunt, lapides, ignem, alia prseterea tela ingerunt. Nostri primo resistere; deinde, ubi unae atque alterne scale comminutme, qui supersteterant, afflicti sunt; ceteri quoquo modo potuere, pauci integri, magna pars confecti vulneribus abeunt. Denique utrimque prcelium nox diremit. LXI. Metellus postquam videt frustra inceptum, ne. que oppidum capi, neque Jugurtham nisi ex insidiis aut suo loco pugnam facere, et jam aestatem exactam esse, ab Zama discedit, et in his urbibus, quam ad se defecerant, satisque munitat loco ant mcenibus erant, praesidia imponit: ceterum exercitum in provinciam, qua; proxima est Numidise, hiemandi gratia collocat. Neque id tem

Page  49 JUGURTHA. 49 pus ex aliorum more quieti aut luxuriT concedit; sed, quoniam armis bellurn parum procedebat, insidias regi per amicos tendere, et eorum perfidia pro armis uti parat. Igitur Bomilcarem, qui Romae cum Jugurtha fuerat, et inde, vadibus datis, clam de Massivae nece judicium fugeiat, quod ei per maximam amicitiam maxima copia fallendi erat, multis pollicitationibus aggreditur. Ac prim6 efficit, uti ad se colloquendi gratia occultus veniat: deinde fide data,'si Jugurtham vivum aut necatum tradidisset, fore, ut illi senatus impunitatem et sua omnia concederet,' facile Numidae persuadet, quum ingenio infido, tum metuenti, ne, si pax cum Romanis fieret, ipse per conditiones ad supplicium traderetur. LXII. Is, ubi primum opportunum fuit, Jugurtham anxium ac miserantem fortunas suas accedit; monet atque lacrymans obtestatur' uti aliquando sibi liberisque et genti Numidarum optime merenti provideat: omnibus prceliis sese victos, agrum vastatum, multos mortales captos aut occisos, regni opes comminutas esse: satis saepe jam et virtutem militum et fortunam tentatam: caveat, ne, illo cunctante, Numida sibi consulant.'. His atque talibus aliis ad deditionem regis animum impellit. Mittuntur ad imperatorem legati, qui'Jugurtham imperata facturum' dicerent,'ac sine ulla pactione sese regnumque suum in illius fidem tradere.' Metellus propere cunctos senatorii ordinis ex hibernis arcessiri jubet: eorum atque aliorum, quos idoneos ducebat, consilium habet. Ita more majorum ex consilii decreto per legatos Jugurihee imperat argenti pondo ducenta millia, elephantos omnes, equorum et armorum aliquantum. Qure postquain sine mora facta sunt, jubet'omnes perfugas vinctos addueL' Eorum magna pars, ut jussum crat, adducti,

Page  50 hO C. CRISPI SALLUSTII pauci, quum primuim deditio ccepit, ad regem Bocchum in Mauretaniam abierant. Igitur Jugurtha, ubi armis virisque et pecunia spoliatus est, quum ipse ad imperandum Tisidium vocaretur, rursus ccepit flectere animurn suum, at ex mala conscientia digna timere. Denique multis diebus per dubitationem consumptis, quum modo taedio rerumn adversarum omnia bello potiora duceret, interdum secum ipse reputaret, quam gravis casus in servitium ex regno foret, multis magnisque praesidiis nequidquam per. ditis, de integro bellum sumit. Et Romae senatus de pro. vinciis consultus Numidiam Metello decreverat. LXIII. Per idem tempus Uticm forte C. Mario per hostias dis supplicanti magna atque mirabilia portendi' haruspex dixerat:'proinde, quae animo agitabat, fretus dis ageret; fortunam quam saepissime experiretur, cuncta prospera eventura.' At illum jam antea consulats ingens cupido exagitabat, ad quern capiendum praeter vetustatem familiae alia omnia abunde erant, industria, probitas, militia magna scientia, animus belli ingens, domi modicus, libidinis et divitiarum victor, tantummodo glorize avidus. Sed is natus et omnem pueritiam Arpini altus, ubi primum setas militiae patiens fuit, stipendiis faciendis, non G-raeca facundia neque urbanis Inunditiis sese exercuit: ita inter artes bonas integrum ingenium brevi adolevit. Ergo ubi primum tribunatum militarem a populo petit, plerisque faciem ejus ignorantibus, facile notus per omnes tribus declaratur. Deinde ab eo magistratu alium post alium sibi peperit, semper quo in potestatibus eo modo agitabat, uti ampliore, quam gerebat, dignus haberetur. Tamen is ad id locorum talis vir (nam postea ambitione prseceps datus est) consulatumi petere non audebat: etiamtum alios magistratus

Page  51 JUGURTIIA. 51 plebes, consulatum nobilitas inter se per manus tradebat: novus nemo tam clarus, neque tam egregius factis erat, quin is indignus illo honore et quasi pollutus habe. retur. LXIV. Igitur ubi Marius haruspicis dicta eodem intendere videt, quo cupido animi hortabatur, ab Metello petendi gratia missionem rogat. Cui quamquam virtus, gloria atque alia optanda bonis superabant, tamen inerat contemptor animus et superbia, commune nobilitatis malum. Itaque primum, commotus insolita re, mirari ejus consilium, et quasi per amicitiam monere,'ne tam prava inciperet, neu super fortunam, animum gereret: non omnia omnibus cupienda esse; debere illi res suas satis placere: postremoi caveret id petere a populo Romano, quod illi jure negaretur.' Postquam haec atque alia talia dixit, neque animus Marii flectitur, respondit, ubi primum potuisset per negotia publica, facturum sese, quae peteret;' ac postea sepius eadem postulanti fertur dixisse,'ne festinaret abire; satis mature illum cum filio suo consulatum petiturum.' Is eo tempore contubernio patris ibidem militabat, annos natus circiter viginti. Quee res Marium quum pro honore, quem affectabat, turn contra Metellum vehementer accenderat. Ita cupidine atque ira, pessimis consultoribus, grassari, neque facto ullo neque dicto abstinere, quod modo ambitiosum foret: milites, quibus in hibernis preErat, laxiore imperio quam antea habere: apud negotiatores quorum magna multitudo Uticne erat, criminose simul et Imagnifice de bello loqui:'dimidia pars exercitus sibi perinitteretur, paucis diebus Jugurtham in catenis habiturum: ab imperatore consulto trahi, quod homo inanis et regiae superbiae imperio nimis gauderet.' Quae orn

Page  52 52 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII nia illis eo firmiora videbantur, quod diuturnitate, belli res familiares corruperant, et animo cupienti nihil satis festinatur LXV. Erat pramterea in exercitu nostro Numida quidam, nomine Gauda, Manastabalis filius, Masinissae nepos, quem rMicipsa testamento secundum heredem scripserat, morbis confectus, et ob earn causam mente paulum imminuta. Cui Metellus petenti,,' more regum uti sellam juxta poneret,' item postea' custodiae causa turmam equitum Romanorum,' utrumque negaverat; honorem, quod eorum mod6 foret, quos populus Romanus reges appellavisset; praesidium, quod contumeliosum foret, si equites Romani satellites Numidme traderentur. Hune Marius anxium aggreditur, atque hortatur, uti contumeliarum imperatoris curn suo auxilio pcenas petat: hominem ob morbos animo parum valido secunda oratione extollit:' ilium regem, ingentem virum, Masinissre nepotem esse; si Jugurtha captus aut occisus foret, imperium Numidim sine mora habiturum; id adeo mature posse evenire, si ipse consul ad id bellum missus foret.' Itaque et illum, et equites Romanos, milites et negotiatores, alios ipse, plerosque spes pacis impellit, uti Romam ad suos necessarios aspere in Metellum de bello scribant, Marium imperatorem poscant. Sic illi a multis mortalibus honestissima suffragatione consulatus petebatur: simul ea tempestate plebes, nobilitate fusa per legeli Mamiliam, novos extollebat. Ita Mario ctncta procedere. LXVI. Interim Jugurtha, postquam, omissa deditione, bellum incipit, cum magna cura parare omnia, festinare, cogere exercitum; civitates, qume ab se defeceraht, forinidine aut ostentando praemia affectare; communire

Page  53 JUGURTli4. 53 suos locos; arma, tela, alia, quae spe pacis amiserat, reficere aut commercari; servitia Romanorum allicere, et cos ipsos, qui in presidiis erant, pecunia tentare; prorsus nihil intactum neque quietum pati, cuncta agitare. Igitur Vaccenses, quo Metellus initio, Jugurtha pacificante, praesidium imposuerat, fatigati regis suppliciis, neque antea voluntate alienati, principes civitatis inter se conjurant: nam vulgus, uti pleruimque solet,(et maxime Numidarum, ingenio mobili, seditiosum atque discordiosum erat, cupidum novarum rerum, quieti et otio adversum. Dein, compositis inter se rebus, in diem tertium constituunt, quod is festus celebratusque per omnem Africam ludum et lasciviam magis quam formidinem ostentabat. Sed ubi tempus fuit, centuriones tribunosque militares, et ipsur praefectum oppidi T. Turpilium Silanum, alius alium domos suas ihvitant: eos omnes preeter Turpilium inter epulas obtruncant: postea milites palantes, inermes, quippe in tali die ac sine imperio, aggrediuntur. Idem plebes facit, pars edocti ab nobilitate, alii studio talium rerum incitati, quis acta consiliumque ignorantibus tumultus ipse et res novte satis placebant. LXVII. Romani milites, improviso metu incerti ignarique, quid potissimum facerent, trepidare: ad arcem oppidi, ubi signa et scuta erant,praesidium hostium: portre,nte clausse fugam prohibebant: ad hoc mulieres puerique pro tectis edificiorum saxa et alia, quas locus prsebebat, certatim mittere. Ita neque caveri anceps malum, neque a fortissimis infirmissimo generi resisti pose: juxta boni malique, strenui et imbelles inulti obtruncari. In ea tantA asperitate, sevissimis Numidis et oppido undique clauso, Turpilius praefectus unus ex omnibus Italicis profugit

Page  54 54 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII intactus. Id misericordiane hospitis, an pactione aut casu ita evenerit, parurn comperimus; nisi, quia illi in tanto malo turpis vita integra fama potior fuit, improbus irltestabilisque videtur. LXVIII. Metellus postquam de rebus Vaccas actis comperit, paulisper mostus e conspectu abit; deinde, ubi ira et segritudo permixta sunt, cum maxima cura ultum ire injurias festinat. Legionem, cum qua hiemabat, et quam plurimos potest Numidas equites pariter cum occasu solis expeditos educit; et postera die circiter horam tertiam pervenit in quamdam planitiem, locis paulo superioribus circumventam. Ibi milites, fessos itineris magnitudine, et jam abnuentes omnia, docet'oppidum Vaccam non amplius mille passuum abesse: decere illos reliquum laborem equo animo pati, dum pro civibus suis, viris fortissimis atque miserrimis, poenas caperent:' praeterea predam benigne ostentat. Ita animis eorum arrectis, equites in primo late, pedites quam artissimeire, et signa occultare jubet. LXIX. Vaccenses ubi animum advertere ad se versum exercitum pergere, primo, uti erat res, Metellum esse rati, portas clausere: deinde, ubi neque agros vastari, et eos, qui primi aderant, Numidas equites vident, rursum Jugurtham arbitrati, cum magno gaudio obvii procedunt. Equites peditesque, repente signo dato, alii vulgum effusum oppido caedere, alii ad portas festinare, pars turres capere; ira atque presde spes amplius quam lassitudo posse. Ita Vaccenses biduum modo ex perfidia lhetati: civitas magna et opulens cuncta poene aut prsdee fuit. Turpilius, quem prmfectum oppidi unum ex omnibus profugisse supra ostendimus, jussus a Metello causam dicere, postquam sese parum expurgat, condemnatus

Page  55 JUGURTHA. 55 verberatusque capite pcenas solvit: nam is civis ex Latio erat. LXX. Per idem tempus Bomilcar, cujus impulsu Jugurtha deditionem, quam metu deseruit, inceperat, suspectus regi, et ipse eum suspiciens, novas res cupere, ad pturniciem ejus dolum qumerere, die noctuque fatigare animum. Denique omnia tentando, socium sibi adjungit Nabdalsam, hominem nobilem, magnis opibus, carum acceptumque popularibus suis, qui plerumque seorsum ab rege exercitum ductare et omnes res exsequi solitus erat, quam Jugurthze fesso aut majoribus adstricto superaverant; ex quo illi gloria opesque inventne. Igitur utriusque consilho dies insidiis statuitur:' cetera, uti res posceret, ex tempore parari' placuit. Nabdalsa ad exercitum profectus, quem inter hiberna Romanorum jussus habebat, ne ager, inultis hostibus, vastaretur. Is postquam magnitudine facinoris perculsus ad tempus non venit, metusque rem impediebat, Bomilcar, simul cupidus incepta patrandi, et timore socii anxius, ne, omisso vetere consilio, novum qumereret, litteras ad eum per hoinines fideles mittit, in quis mollitiem socordiamque viri accusare, testari deos, per quos juravisset, monere,'ne pramia Metelli in pestem converteret; Jurgurthwe exitium adesse; ceteruim suane an Metelli virtute periret, id modo agitari: proinde reputaret cum animo suo, praemia an cruciatum mallet.' LXXI. Sed quum hee litterae allatae, forte Nabdalsa exercito corpore fessus in lecto quiescebat, ubi, cognitis Bomilcaris verbis, primo cura, deinde, uti regrurn animum solet, somnus cepit. Erat ei Numida quidam, negotiorum curator, fidus acceptusque et omnium consiliorum, nisi novissimi, particeps. Qui postquam alla6

Page  56 56 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII tas litteras audivit, ex consuetudine ratus opera aut in. genio suo opus esse, in tabernaculum introiit: dormiente illo epistolam, super caput in pulvino temere positam sumit ac perlegit, dein propere, cognitis insidiis, ad regern pergit. Nabdalsa post paulo experrectus, ubi neque epis. tolam reperit, et rem omnem, uti acta erat, cognovit, primo indicem persequi conatus, postquam id frustra fuit, Jugurtham placandi gratia accedit; dicit'quae ipse paravisset facere, perfidia clientis sui preeventa:' lacrymans obtestatur'per amicitiam perque sua antea fideliter acta, ne super tali scelere suspectum sese haberet.' LXXII. Ad ea rex, aliter atque animo gerebat, placide respondit. Bomilcare aliisque multis, quos socios insidiarum cognoverat, inteifectis, iram oppresserat, ne qua ex eo negotio seditio oriretur. Neque post id locorum Jugurthae dies aut nox ulla quieta fuit: neque loco neque mortali cuiquam aut tempori satis credere, cives, hostes juxta metuere, circumspectare omnia, et omni strepitu pavescere, alio atque alio loco, sepe contra decus regium, noctu requiescere, interdum somno excitus, arreptis armis, tumultum facere; ita formidine quasi vecordia exagitari. LXXIII. Igitur Metellus, ubi de casu Bomilcaris et indicio patefacto ex perfugis cognovit, rursus, tarnquam ad integrum bellum, cuncta parat festinatque. Marium, fatigantem de profectione, simul et invisum et offensum, sibi parum idoneum ratus, domum dimittit. Et Romas plebes, litteris, qute de Metello ac Mario missae erant, cognitis, volenti animo de ambobus acceperant. Imper atori nobilitas, quse antea decori, invidise esse: at illi altnrl generis humilitas favorem addiderat: ceterum in utroque magis studia partium, quam bona aut mala sua

Page  57 JUGURTHA. 57 roderata. Preterea seditiosi magistratus vulgum exag. itare, Metellum omnibus concionibus capitis arcessere, Marii virtutem in majus celebrare. Denique plebes sic a censa, utl opifices agrestesque omnes, quorum res fidesque in manibus sitse erant, relictis operibus, frequentarent Marnum, et sua necessaria post illius honorem ducerent. Ita, perculsa nobilitate, post multas tempestates novo homini consulatus mandatur; et postea populus, a tribune plebis Manilio Mancino rogatus,'quem vellet cum Jugurtha bellum gerere,' frequens Marium jussit. Sed senatus paulo ante Metello Numidiam decreverat: ea res frustra. fiit. LXXIV. Eodem tempore Jugurtha, amissis' amicis, quorum plerosque ipse necaverat, ceteri formidine, pars ad Romanos, alii ad regem Bocchum profugerant, quum neque bellum geri sine administris posset, et novorum fidem in tanta perfidia veterum experiri periculosum duceret, varius incertusque agitabat; neque illi res, neque consilium aut quisquam hominum satis placebat: itinera preefectosque in dies mutare; m6od adversum hostes, interdum in solitudines pergere; smpe in fugh, ac post paulo in armis spem habere; dubitare, virtuti an fide popularium minus crederet: ita, quocumque intenderat, res adversve erant. Sed inter eas moras repente sese Metellus cum exercitu ostendit. Numide ab Jugurtha pro tempore parati instructique; dein prcelium incipitur. Qua in parte rex pugnme adfuit, ibi aliquamdiu certatum; ceteri omnes ejus milites primo concursu pulsi fugatique. Romari signorum et armorum aliquanto numero, hostium pnucoi ain potiti: nam ferme Numidas in omnibus prceliis nlagis pedes quam arma tuta sunt. 7.Y WV Ea fuga Jugurtha, impensius modo rebus suis

Page  58 58 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII diffidens, cum perfugis et parte equitatus in solitudincs dein Thalam pervenit, in oppidum magnum et opulentum, ubi plerique thesauri filiorumque ejus multus pueritihe cultus erat. Quse postquam Metello comperta sunt, quamquam inter Thalam flumenque proximum, spatio millium quinquaginta, loca arida atque vasta esse cognoverat, tamen spe patrandi belli, si ejus oppidi potitus foret, omnes asperitates supervadere, ac naturam etiam vincere aggreditur. Igilur omnia jumenta sarcinis levari jubet, nisi frumento dierum decem; ceterum utres modo et alia aquae idonea portari. Praeterea conquirit ex agris, quam plurimum potest domiti pecoris, e6que imponit vasa cujusque modi, sed pleraque lignea, collecta ex tuguriis Numidarum. Ad hoc finitimis imperat, qui se post regis fugam Metello dederant, quam plurimum quisque aquam portaret: diem locumque, ubi praesto forent, praedicit. Ipse ex flumine, quam proximam oppido aquam supra diximus, jumenta onerat: eo modo instructus ad Thalam proficiscitur. Deinde ubi ad id loci ventum, quo Numidis prEeceperat, et castra posita munitaque sunt, tanta repente ccelo missa vis aquae dicitur, ut ea modo exercitui satis superque foret. Preterea commeatus spe amplior, quia Numidae, sicuti plerique in nova deditione, officia intenderant. Ceterum milites religione pluvia magis usi, eaque res multum animis eorurn addidit; nam rati sese dis immortalibus cura esse. Deinde postero die, contra opinionem Jugurthae, ad Thalam perveniunt. Oppidani, qui se locorum asperitate munitos crediderant, magna atque insolita re perculsi, nihilo segnius belluin parare: idem nostri facere. LXXVI. Sed rex, nihil jam infectum Metello credens, quippe qui omnia, arma, tela, locos, tempora, dxenique

Neque postea in ullo loco amplius uno die aut una nocte moratus, simulabat sese negotii gratia properare; ceterum proditionem timebat, quam vitare posse celeritate putabat: nam talia consilia per otium et ex opportunitate capi. At Metellus, ubi oppidanos prcclio intentos, simul oppidum et operibus et loco munitum videt, vallo fossaque mconia circumvenit. Deinde locis ex copia maxime idoneis vineas agere, aggerem jacere, et super aggerem impositis turribus, opus et administros tutari. Contra haec oppidani festinare, parare: prorsus ab utrisque nihil reliquum fieri. Denique Romani, iulto ante labore prceliisque fatigati, post dies quadraginta, quam eo ventum erat, oppido modo potiti: prteda omnis a perfugis corrupta. Ii postquam murum arietibus feriri resque suas afflictas vident, aurum atque argentum et alia, quve prima ducuntur, domum regiam comportant: ibi vino et epllis onerati, illaque et domum et semet igni corrumpunt; et quas victi ab hostibus poenas metuerant, eas ipsi volentes pependere. LXXVII. Sed pariter cum capta Thala legati ex oppido Lepti ad Metellum venerant, orantes,' uti praesidium prmefectumque e6 mitteret: Hamilcarem quemdam, horn. inem nobilem, factiosum, novis rebus studere, adversum quem neque imperia magistratuum neque leges valerent: ni id festinaret, in summo periculo suam salutem, illorum socios fore.' Nam Leptitani jam inde a principio belli Jugurthini ad Bestiam consulem et postea Romam nmiserant, amicitiam societatemque rogatum: deinde, ubi ea impetrata. semper boni fidelesque mansere, et cuncta a Bestia, Albino Metelloque imperata nave fecerant. Ita6*

Id oppidum ab Sidoniis conditum est, quos accepimus profugos ob discordias civiles navibus ill os locos venisse: ceteruim situm inter duas Syrtes, quibus nomen ex re inditum. Nam duo sunt sinus prqe in extrema Africa, impares magnitudine, pari natura: quorum proxima terrae praealta sunt; cetera, uti fors tulit, alta, alia in tempestate, vadosa. Nam ubi mare magnum esse, et savire ventis ccepit, limum arenamque et saxa ingentia fluctus trahunt: ita facies locorum cum ventis simul mutatur. Syrtes ab tractu nominatae. Ejus civitatis lingua modo conversa connubio Numidarum: leges cultusque pleraque Sidonica, qume eo facilius retinebant, quod procul ab imperio regis metatem agebant. Inter illos et frequentem Numidiam multi vastique loci erant. LXXIX. Sed quoniam in has regiones per Leptitanorum negotia venimus, non indignum videtur egregium atque mirabile facinus duorum Carthaginiensium memorare: cam rem nos locus admonuit. Qua tempestate Carthaginienses plerarque Africe imperitabant, Cyferenses quoque magni atque opulenti fuere. Ager in medio arenosus, una specie: neque flumen, neque mons erat, qui fines eorum discerneret; qure res eos in magno diuturnoque bello inter se habuit. Postquam utrimque legiones, item classes smpe fusae fugataque, et alteri alteros aliquantum attriverant, veriti, ne mox victos victoresque defessos alius aggrederetur, per inducias sponsionem faciunt, uti certo die legati domo proficiscerentur: quo in loco inter se obvii fuissent, is communis utriusque populi finis haberetur.' Igitur Carthagine duo fratpes missi, quibus nomen Philkenis erat, maturavere iter perg6re

Page  61 JUGURTHA. 61 Cyrenenses tardius iere. Id socordiane an casu acciderit, parum cognovi: ceterum solet in illis locis tempestas haud secus- atque in mari retinere. Nam ubi per loca aequalia et nuda gignentium ventus coortus arenam humo excitavit, ea magna vi agitata ora oculosque implere solet: ita, prospectu impedito, morari iter. Postquam Cyrenenses aliquanto posteriores se vident, et ob rem corruptam domi pcenas metuunt, criminari Carthaginienses ante tempus domo digressos, conturbare rem, denique omnia malle, quam victi abire. Sed quum Pceni aliam conditionem, tantummodo sequam, peterent, Graeci optionem Carthaginiensibus faciunt,' ut vel illi, quos fines populo suo peterent, ibi vivi.obruerentur, vel eadem conditione sese, quem in locum vellent, processuros.' PhiIaeni, conditione probata, seque vitamque suam reipublicae condonavere: ita vivi obruti; Carthaginienses in eo loco Philenis fratribus aras consecravere: aliique illis domi honores instituti. Nunc ad rem redeo. LXXX. Jugurtha postquam, amissa Thala, nihil satis firmum contra Metelhum putat, per magnas solitudines cum paucis profectus, pervenit ad Gaetulos, genus hominum ferum incultumque, et eo tempore ignarum nominis Romani. Eorum multitudinem in unhm cogit, ac paulatim consuefacit ordines habere, signa sequi, imperium observare, item alia militaria facere. Praeterea regis Bocchi proximos magnis muneribus et majoribus promissis ad studium sui perducit; quis adjutoribus regeni aggressus impellit, uti adversum Romanos bellum suscipiat. Id ea gratia facilius proniusque fuit, quod Bocchus initio hujusce belli legatos Romam miserat, foedus et amnicitiam petitum: quam rem opportunissimam incepto bello pauci impediverant, caeci avaritia, quis onnnia, ho

Page  62 62 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII nesta atque inhonesta, vendere mos erat. Etiam antca Jugurthae filia Bocchi nupserat. Verum ea necessitudo apud Numidas Maurosque levis ducitur, quia singuli, pro opibus quisque, quam plurimas uxores, denas alii, alii plures habent, sed reges eo amplius. Ita animus multitudine distrahitur; nulla pro socia obtinet; pariter omnes viles sunt. LXXXI. Igitur in locum ambobus placitum exercitus conveniunt. Ibi, fide dat& et accepta, Jugurtha Bocchi animum oratione accendit:'Romanos injustos, profunda avaritia, communes omnium hostes esse: eandem illos causam belli cum Boccho habere, quam secum et cum aliis gentibus, libidinem imperitandi, quis omnia regna adversa sint: turn sese, paulo ante Carthaginienses, item Persen regem, post, uti quisque opulentissimus videatur, ita Romanis hostem fore.' His atque aliis talibus dictis, ad Cirtam oppidum iter constituunt, quod ibi Metellus praedam captivosque et impedimenta locaverat: ita Jugurtha ratus, aut, capta urbe, opera pretium fore; aut, si Romanus auxilio suis venisset, prcelio sese certaturos. Nam callidus id modo festinabat, Bocchi pacem imminuere, ne moras agitando aliud quam bellum mallet. LXXXII. Imperator postquam de regum societate cognovit, non temere, neque, uti, sepe jam victo Jugurtha, consueverat, omnibus locis pugnandi copiam facit ceterum haud procul ab Cirta, castris munitis, reges opperitur; melius esse ratus, cognitis Mauris, quoniam is novus hostis" accesserat, ex commodo pugnam facere. Interim Roma per litteras certior fit provinciam Numidiam Mario datam; nam consulem factum ante acceperat. Quis rebus supra bonum atque honestum perculsus, neque lacrymas tenere, neque moderari linguam: vir egregius

Page  63 JUGURTHA. 63 in aliis artibus nimis molliter agritudinem pati. Quam rem alii in superbiam vertebant, alii bonum ingenium contumelia accensum esse, multi, quod jam'parta victoria ex manibus eriperetur: nobis satis cognitum est, illum magis honore Marii quam injuria sua excruciatum, neque tam anxie laturum fuisse, si adempta provincia alii quam Mario traderetur. LXXXIII. Igitur eo dolore impeditus, et quia stultitia videbatur alienam rem periculo suo curare, legatos ad Bocchum mittit, postulatum,'ne sine causa hostis populo Romano fieret: habere tum magnam copiam societatis amicitiEeque conjungendae, qua potior bello esset: quamquam opibus suis confideret, tamen non debere incerta pro certis mutare: omne bellum sumi facile, ceterum aegerrime desinere: non in ejusdem potestate initium ejus et finem esse; incipere cuivis, etiam ignavo, licere; deponi, quum victores velint. Proinde sibi regnoque suo consuleret, neu florentes res suas cum Jugurthm perditis misceret.' Ad ea rex satis placide verba facit:'sese pacem cupere, sed Jugurthae fortunarum misereri; si eadem illi copia fieret, omnia conventura.' Rursus imperator contra postulata Bocchi nuntios mittit: ille probare partim, alia abnuere. Eo modo sepe ab utroque missis remissisque nuntiis tempus procedere, et ex Metelli voluntate bellum intactum trahi. LXXXIV. At Marius, ut supra diximus, cupientissima plebe consul factus, postquam ei provinciam Numidiam populus jussit, antea jam infestus nobilitati, tum vero multus atque ferox instare: singulos modo, modo universos ledere; dictitare'sese consulatum ex victis illis spolia cepisse;' alia prasterea magnifica pro se, et illis dolentia. Interim, quaE bello opus erant, prima habere:

Page  64 64 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII postulare legionibus supplementum, auxilia a populis et regibus sociisque arcessere: praeterea ex Latio fortissimum quemque, plerosque militiae, paucos faman cognitos, accire, et ambiendo cogere homines emeritis stipendiis secum proficisci. Neque illi senatus, quamquam adversus erat, de ullo negotio abnuere audebat: ceteruim supplementum etiam laetus decreverat; quia neque plebi militia volenti putabatur, et Marius aut belli usum aut studia vulgi amissurus. Sed ea res frustra sperata: tanta libido cum Mario eundi plerosque invaserat. Sese quisque praeda locupletem fore, victorern domum rediturum, alia hujuscemodi animis trahebant, et eos non paulunm oratione sua Marius arrexerat. Nam postquam, omnibus, quae postulaverat, decretis, milites scribere vult, hortandi causa, simul et nobilitatem, uti consueverat, exagitandi, concionem populi advocavit; deinde hoc modo disseruit. LXXXV. "Scio ego, Quirites, plerosque non iisdem artibus imperium a vobis petere, et, postquam adepti sunt, gerere: primo industrios, supplices, modicos esse; deinde per ignaviam et superbiam atatem agere. Sed mihi contra ea videtur: nam quo pluris est, universa respublica quam consulatus aut praetura, eo majore cura illam administrari, quam haec peti, debere. Neque me fallit, quantum cum maximo beneficio vestro negotii sustineam. Bellum parare simul, et verario parcere; cogere ad militiam eos, quos nolis offendere; dorni forisque omnia curare; et ea agere inter invidos, occursantes, factiosos, opinione, Quirites, asperius est. Ad hoc alii si deliquere, vetus nobilitas, majorum fortia facta, cognatorum et affinium opes, multma clientelme, omnia haec praesidio adsunt: mihi spes omnes in memet sitas, quas necesse est

Page  65 JUGURTHA. 65 et virtute et innocentia tutari; nam alia infirma sunt. Et illud intelfigo, Quirites, omnium ora in me cbnveT^ai esse: aequos bonosque favere, quippe benefacta mea reipublica procedunt; nobilitatem locum invadendi querere. Quo mihi acriuis adnitendum est, ut neque vos capiamini, et illi frustra sint. Ita ad hoc etatis a pueritia fui, ut omnes labores, pericula consueta habeam Qua ante vestra beneficia gratuito faciebam, a uti, accepta mercede, deser'am, non est consilium, Quirites. Illis difficile est in potestatibus temperare, qui per ambitionem sese probos simulavere: mihi, qui omnem eetatem in optimis artibus egi, bene facere jam ex consuetudine in naturam vertit. Bellum me gerere cum Jugurtha jussistis; quam rem nobilitas egerrime tulit. Quaesob reputate cum animis vestris, num id mutari melius sit, si quem ex illo" globo nbbilitatis ad hoc aut aliud tale negotium mittatis, hominem veteris prosapiae ac multarum imaginum^ et nullius stipendii, scilicet ut in tant& re ignarus omnium trepidet, festinet, sumat aliquem ex populo moniforem officii sui. Ita plerumque evenit, ut, quem vos imperare jussistis, is sibi imperatorem alium queerat. Atque ego scio, Quirites, qui, postquam consules facti sunt, acta majorum et Graecorum militaria praecepta legere cceperint; preposteri homines; nam gerere quam fieri ternpore posterius, re atque usu prius est. Comparate nunc, Quirites, cum illorum superbia me hominem novum. Quse illi audire et legere solent, eorumn partem vidi, alia egomet gessi: quoe illi litteris, ea ego militando didici. Nunc vos existimate, facta an dicta pluris sint. Contemnunt novitatem mearn; ego illorum ignaviam: mihi fortuna, illis probra objectantur. Quamquam ego naturam unam et communem omnium existi

Page  66 66 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII mo, sed fortissimum quemque generosissimum, Ac si jam ex patribus Albini aut Bestiae quari possef,' Mene an illos ex se gigni maluerint,' quid responsuros creditis, nisi,'sese liberos quam optimos voluisse?' Quod si jure me despiciunt, faciant idem majoribus suis, quibus, uti niihi, ex virtute nobilitas ccepit. Invident honori meo; ergo invideant labori, innocentize, periculis etiam meis, quoniam per hcec illum cepi. Verum homines corrupti superbia ita aetatem agunt, quasi vestros honores contemnant; ita hos petunt, quasi honeste vixerint. Ne illi falsi sunt, qui diversissimas res pariter exspectant, ignaviae voluptatem et praemia virtutis. Atque etiam quum apud vos aut in senatu verba faciunt, pleraque oratione majores suos extollunt; eorum fortia facta memorando clariores sese putant: quod contra est. Nam quanto vita illorum preclarior, tanto horum socordia flagitiosior. Et profecto ita se res habet: majorum gloria posteris quasi lumen est; neque bona eorum neque mala in occulto patitur. Hujusce rei ego inopiam patior, Quirites; verum, id quod multo praeclarius est, meamet facta mihi dicere licet. Nunc videte, quam iniqui sint. Quod ex aliena virtute sibi arrogant, id mihi ex mea non concedunt; scilicet, quia imagines non habeo, et quia mihi nova nobilitas est, quam certe peperisse melius est, quam acceptam corrupisse. Equidem ego non ignoro, si jam mihi respondere velint, abunde illis facundam et compositam orationem fore. Sed in maximo vestro beneficio, quum omnibus locis me vosque maledict'is lacerent, non placuit reticere, ne quis modestiam in consclentiam duceret. Nam me quidem, ex animi mei sententia, nulla oratio laedere potest: quippe vera necesse est bene praedicet, falsam vita moresque mei superant. Sed quoni

Page  67 JUGURTHA. 67 am vestra consilia accusantur, qui mihi summum honorcm et maximum negotium imposuistis, etiam atque etiam reputate, num eorum poenitendum sit. Non possum, fidei causa imagines, neque triumphos aut consulatus majorum meorum ostentare; at, si res postulet, hastas, vexillum, phaleras, alia militaria dona; praeterea cicatrices adverso corpore. Hau sunt mese imagines, hec nobilitas, non haereditate relicta, ut illa illis, sed quae egomet plurimis laboribus et periculis quaesivi. Non sunt composita mea verba; parum id facio; ipsa se virtus satis ostendit: illis artificio opus est, ut turpia facta oratione tegant. Neque litteras Greeas didici: parum placebat eas discere, quippe qume ad virtutem doctoribus nihil profuerunt. At illa multo optima reipublicae doctus sum, hostem ferire, prmssidia agitare, nihil metuere nisi turpem famam, hiemem et mstatem juxta pati, humi requiescere, eodem tempore inopiam et laborem tolerare. Iis ego preceptis milites hortabor, neque illos arte colam, me opulenter; neque gloriam meam laborem illorum faciam. Hoc est utile, hoc civile imperium. Namque, quum tute per mollitiem agas, exercitum supplicio cogere, id est dominum, non imperatorem esse. Haec atque talia majores vestri faciendo seque remque publicam celebravere. Quis nobilitas freta, ipsa dissimilis moribus, nos, illorum mmulos, contemnit; et omnes honores, non ex merito, sed quasi debitos, a vobis repetit. Ceterum homines superbissimi procul errant. Majores eorum omnia, qure licebat, illis reliquere, divitias, imagines, memoriam sui preciaram: virtutem non reliquere; neque poterant: ea sola neque datur dono, neque accipitur.' Sordidum me et incultis moribus' aiunt, quia parum scite convivium exorno, neque histrionem ullum, neque pluris pretii

Page  68 68 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII coquum quam villicum habeo. Qua mihi libet confiteri, Quirites, nam ex parente meo, et ex aliis sanctis vlris ita accepi, munditias mulieribus, viris laborem convenire; omnibusque bonis oportere plus gloriwequam divitiarum esse; arma, non supellectilem decori esse. Quil ergo, quod juvat, quod carum zestimant, id semper faciant; ament, potent: ubi adolescentiam habuere, ibi senectutem agant, in conviviis, dediti ventri et turpissimae parti corporis: sudorem, pulverem, et alia talia relinquant nobis, quibus illa epulis jucundiora sunt. VerAm non est ita: nam ubi se flagitiis dedecoravere turpissimi viri, bonorum preemia ereptum eunt. Ita injustissime luxuria et ignavia, pessimse artes, illis, qui coluere eas,nihilofficiunt, reipublicae innoxiae cladi sunt. Nunc, quoniam illis, quantum mores mei, non illorum flagitia poscebant, respondi, pauca de republica loquar. Primuim omnium de Numidia bonum habete animum, Quirites. Nam quae ad hoc tempus Jugurtham tutata sunt, omnia removistis, avaritiam, imperitiam, superbiam. Deinde exergitus ibi est locorum sciens; sed mehercule magis strenuus quam felix; nam magna pars ejus avaritia aut temeritate ducum attrita est. Quamobrem vos, quibus militaris est atas, adnitimini mecum, et capessite rempublicam: neque quemquam ex calamitate aliorum aut imperatorum superbia metus ceperit. Egomet in agrnine, in prcelio, consultor idem et socius periculi, vobiscum adero; meque vosque in omnibus rebus juxta geram. Et profecto, diis juvantibus, omnia matura sunt, victoria, preeda, laus' quee si dubia aut procul essent, tamen omnes bonos reipublicae subvenire decebat. Etenim ignavia nemo immortalis factus, neque quisquam parens liberis, uti eterni forent, optavit; magis, uti boni honestique vitam exige

Page  69 JGURTHA. 69 rent. Plura dicerem, Quirites, si timidis virtutem verba addererit; nam strenuis abunde dictum puto." LXXXVI. Hujuscemodi oratione habita, Marius postquam plebis animos arrectos videt, propere commeatu, stipendio, armis, aliis utilibus naves onerat: cuum his A Manlium legatum proficisci jubet. Ipse interea milites scribere, non more majorum, neque ex classibus, sed uti cujusque libido erat, capite- censos plerosque. Id factum alii inopia bonorun, alii per ambitionem consulis memoralbant, quod ab eo genere celebratus auctusque erat, et homini potentiam quaerenti egentissimus quisque opportunissimus, cui neque sua cura, quippe qua nulla sunt, et omnia cum pretio honesta videntur. Igitur Marius cum aliquanto majore numero, quam decretum erat, in Africam profectus, paucis diebus Uticam advehitur. Exercitus ei traditur a P. Rutilio legato: nam Metellus conspectum Marii fugerat, ne videret ea, quse audita animus tolerare nequiverat. LXXXVII. Sed consul, expletis legionibus cohortibusque auxiliariis, in agrum fertilem et praeda onustum proficiscitur, omnia ibi capta militibus donat, dein castella et oppida natura et viris parum munita aggreditur; prcelia multa, ceterum levia, alia aliis locis facere. Interim novi milites sine metu pugnse adesse, videre fugientes capi aut occidi, fortissimum quemque tutissimum, armis libertatem, patriam parentesque et alia omnia tegi, gloriam atque divitias quaeri. Sic brevi spatio novi veteresque coaluere, et virtus omnium requalis facta. At reges, ubi de adventu Marii cognoverunt, diversi in locos difficiles abeunt. Ita Jugurthae placuerat, speranti mox effusos hostcs invadi posse, Romanos, sicuti plerosque, remoto metu, laxius licentiusque futuros.

Page  70 70 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII LXXXVIII. Metellus interea Romam profectus, contra spem suam iletissimis animis excipitur, plebi patribusque, postquam invidia decesserat, juxta carus. Sed Marius impigr6 prudenterque suorum et hostium res par. iter attendere, cognoscere quid boni utrisque aut contra esset, explorare itinera regum, consilia et insidias antevenire, nihil apud se remissum neque apud illos tutum pati. Itaque et Gatulos et Jugurtham, ex sociis nostris praedas agentes, saepe aggressus in itinere fuderat, ipsumque regem haud procul ab oppido Cirta armis exuerat. Quae postquam gloriosa modo, neque belli patrandi cognovit, statuit urbes, qua viris aut loco pro hostibus et adversum se opportunissimse erant, singulas circumvenire: ita Jugurtham aut praesidiis nudatum, si ea pateretur, aut prcelio certaturum. Nam Bocchus nuntios ad eum saepe miserat,' velle populi Romani amicitiam, ne quid ab se hostile timeret.' Id simulaveritne, quo improvisus gravior accideret, an mobilitate ingenii pacem atque bellum mutare solitus, parum exploratum est, LXXXIX. Sed consul, uti statuerat, oppida castellaque munita adire; partim vi, alia metu aut praemia ostentando, avertere ab hostibus. Ac prim6 mediocria gerebat, existimans Jugurtham ob suos tutandos in manus venturum. Sed ubi ilium procul abesse, et aliis negotiis intentum accepit, majora et magis aspera aggredi tempus visum est. Erat inter ingentes solitudines oppidum magnum atque valens, nomine Capsa, cujus conditor Hercules Libys memorabatur. Ejus cives apud Jugurtham immunes, levi imperio, et ob ea fidelissimi habebantur; muniti adversum hostes non mcenibus modo et armis atque viris, verum etiam multo magis locorum asperitate. Nam, praeter oppido propinqua, alia omnia vas

Ejus potiundi Marium maxima cupido invaserat, quum propter usum belli, turn quia res aspera videbatur, et Metellus oppidum Thalam magna gloria ceperat, haud dissimiliter situm munitumque, nisi quod apud Thalam non longe a ncenibus aliquot fontes erant, Capsenses una modo, atque ea intra oppidum, jugi aqua, cetera pluvia utebantur. Id ibique et in omni Africa, qum procul a mari incultius agebat, eo faciliuis tolerabatur, quia Numidae plerumque lacte et ferina carne vescebantur, et neque salem neque alia irritamenta gulae quaerebant: cibus illis adversum famem atque sitim, non libidini neque luxuriae erat. XC. Igitur consul, omnibus exploratis, credo, dis fretus; (nam contra tantas difficultates consilio satis providere non poterat; quippe etiam frumenti inopia tentabatur, qubd Numidae pabulo pecoris magis quam arvo student, et quodcumque natum fuerat, jussu regis in loca munita contulerant; ager autem aridus et frugum vacuus ea tempestate, nam estatis extremum erat); tamen pro rei copia satis providenter exornat: pecus omne, quod superioribus diebus prmdae fuerat, equitibus auxiliariis agendum attribuit: A. Manlium legatum cum cohortibus expeditis ad oppidum Lares, ubi stipendium et commeatum locaverat, ire jubet, dicitque'se praedabundum post paucos dies eodem venturum.' Sic incepto suo occultato, pergit ad flumen Tanam. XCI. Ceterum in itinere quotidie pecus exercitui per centurias item turmas aequaliter distribuerat, et, ex coris utres uti fierent, curabat: simul et inopiam frumenti 7*

Page  72 72 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII lenire, et, ignaris omnibus, parare, qums mox usui forent. Denique sexto die, quum ad flumen ventum est, maxi-'ma vis utrium effecta. Ibi castris levi munimento positis, milites cibum capere, atque, uti simul cum occasu solis egrederentur, paratos esse jubet, omnibus sarcinis abjectis, aqua modo seque et jumenta onerare. Dein, postquam tempus visum, castris egreditur, noctemque totam itinere facto, consedit: idem proxima facit. Dein tertia multo ante lucis adventum pervenit in locum tumulosum, ab Capsa non amplius duum millium intervallo, ibique, quam occultissime potest, cum omnibus copiis opperitur. Sed ubi dies coepit, et Numidas, nihil hostile metuentes, multi oppido egressi, repente omnem equitatum, et cum his velocissimos pedites cursu tendere ad Capsam, et portas obsidere jubet: deinde ipse intentus proper6 sequi, neque milites praedari sinere. Quae postquam oppidani cognovere, res trepidae, metus ingens, malum improvisum, ad hoc pars civium extra mcenia in hostium potestate, coegere, uti deditionem facerent. Ceterum oppidum incensum, Numidm puberes interfecti, alii omnes venum dati, preeda militibus divisa. Id facinus contra jus belli non avaritia neque scelere consulis admissum: sed quia locus Jugurtha opportunus, nobis aditu difficilis; genus hominum mobile, infidum'ante, neque beneficio neque metu coercitum. XCII. Postquam tantam rem Marius sine ullo suorum incommodo patravit, magnus et clarus antea, major et clarior haberi ccepit. Omnia,'non bene consulta modo, verum etiam casu data in virtutem trahebantur; milites modesto imperio habiti, simul et locupletes, ad ccelum ferre; Numidae magis quam mortalem timere; postremo omnes, socii atque hostes, credere illi aut mentem divinam

Page  73 JUGURTHA. 73 esse, aut deorum nutu cuncta portendi. Sed consul, ubi ea res bene evenit, ad alia oppida pergit: pauca, repug. nantibus Numidis, capit, plura, deserta propter Capsensium miserias, igni corrumpit: luctu atque casde omnia complentur. Denique multis locis potitus, ac plerisque exercitu incruento, aliam rem aggreditur, non eadem asperitate, cua Capsensium, ceteruim haud secuis difficilem. Namque haud longe a flumine Mulucha, quod Jugurthe Bocchique regnum disjungebat, erat inter ceteram planitiem mons saxeus, mediocri catello satis patens, in immensum editus, uno perangusto aditu relicto; nam omnis natura, velut opere atque consulto, preceps. Quem locum Marius, quod ibi regis thesauri erant, summa vi capere intendit. Sed ea res forte, quam consilio, meliius gesta. Nam castello virorum atque armorum satis, magna vis frumenti et fons aquse; aggeribus turribusque et aliis machinationibus locus importunus; iter castellanorum angustum admodum, utrimque praecisum. Vinee cum ingenti periculo frustra agebantur; nam quum ece paultum processerant, igni aut lapidibus corrumpebantur: milites neque pro opere consistere, propter iniquitatem loci, neque inter vineas sine periculo administrare: optimus quisque cadere aut sauciari, ceteris metus augeri, XCIII. At Marius, multis diebus et laboribus consumptis, anxius trahere cum animo suo, omitteretne inceptum, quoniam frustra erat, an fortunam opperiretur, qua saepe prospere usus fuerat. Qume quum multos dies noctesque aestuans agitaret, forte quidam Ligus, ex cohortibus auxiliariis miles gregarius, castris aquatum egressus, haud procul ab latere castelli, quod aversum prceliantibus erat, animum advertit inter saxa repentes cochleas: quarnim quum unam atque alteram, dein plures peteret. studio

Page  74 74 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII legendi paulatim prope ad summum montis egressus est. Ubi postquam solitudinem intellexit, more ingenii humanl cupido difficilia faciendi animum vertit. Et forte in eo loco grandis ilex coaluerat inter saxa, paululum modo prona, deinde flexa atque aucta in altitudinem, quo cuncta gignentium natura fert: cujus ramis modo, modo eminentibus saxis nisus Ligus, in castelli planitiem pervenit, qubd cuncti Numidoe intenti prceliantibus aderant. Exploratis omnibus, quae mox usui fore ducebat, eadem regreditur, non temere, uti escenderat, sed tentans omnia et circumspiciens. Itaque Marium propere adit, acta edocet; hortatur, ab ea parte, qua ipse escenderat, castellum tentet; pollicetur sese itineris periculique ducem. Marius cum Ligure, promissa ejus cognitum, ex prmesentibus misit; quorum uti cujusque ingenium erat, ita rein difficilem aut facilem nuntiavere. Consulis animus tamen paulum arrectus. Itaque ex copia tubicinum et cornicinum numero quinque quhm velocissimos delegit, et cum his, praesidio qui forent, quatuor centuriones, omnesque Liguri parere jubet, et ei negotio proximum diem constituit.

Ceterum illi, qui ascensuri erant, prmedocti ab duce, arma ornatumque mutaverant, capite atque pedibus nudis, uti prospectus nisusque per saxa facilius foret: super terga gladii et scuta verum ea Numidica ex coriis, ponderis gratia simu]l, et offensa quo leviis streperent. Igitur praegrediens Ligus saxa, et si quse vetustate radices eminebant, Jaqueis vinciebat, quibus allevati milites facilius escenderent: interdum timidos insolentia itineris levare manu: ubi paulo asperior ascensus erat, singulos pre se inermes

Igitur, diu multumque fatigati, tandem in castellum perveniunt, desertum ab ea parte, quod omnes, sicuti aliis diebus, adversum hostes aderant. Marius, ubi ex nuntiis, quae Ligus egerat, cognovit, quamquam toto die intentos prcelio Numidas habuerat, tur vero cohortatus milites, et ipse extra vineas egressus, testudine acta succedere, et simul hostem tormentis sagittariisque et funditoribus eminus terrere. At Numidm, ssepe antea vineis Romanorum subversis, item incensis, non castelli mcenibus sese tutabantur; sed pro muro dies noctesque agitare, maledicere Romanis, ac Mario vecordiam objectare, militibus nostris Jugurthae servitium minari, secundis rebus feroces esse. Interim omnibus Romanis hostibusque, proelio intentis, magnL utrimque vi pro gloria atque imperio his, illis pro salute certantibus, repente a tergo signa canere: ac primo mulieres et pueri, qui visum processerant, fugere; deinde, uti quisque muro proximus erat, postremO cuncti, armati inermesque. Quod ubi accidit, eo acriuis Romani instare, fundere, ac plerosque tantummodo sauciare; dein super occisorum corpora vadere, avidi gloriae certantes murum petere, neque quemquam omnium prseda morari. Sic forte correcta Marii temeritas gloriam ex cutpa invenit. XCV. Ceterum dum ea res geritur, L. Sulla questor cum magno equitatu in castra venit: quos uti ex Latio et a sociis cogeret,.Rome relictus erat. Sed quoniain nos tanti viri res admonuit, idoneum visum est, de natura ckiltuque ejus paucis dicere: neque enim alio loco de

Igitur' Sulla gentis patriciae nobilis fuit, familia prope jam exstincta majorum ignavia: litteris Graecis ac Latinis juxta, atque doctissime, cruditus; animo ingenti, cupidus voluptatum, sed gloriee cupidior, otio luxurioso esse; tamen ab negotiis nunquam voluptas remorata, nisi quod de uxore potuit honestius consuli: facundus, callidus, et amicitia facilis: ad simulanda negotia altitudo ingenii incredibilis: multarum rerum ac maxime pecunine largitor. Atque illi felicissimo omnium ante civilem victoriam, nunquam super industriam fortuna fuit; multique dubitavere, fortior an felicior esset: nam, postea quee fecerit, incertum habeo, pudeat magis, an pigeat disserere. XCVI. Igitur Sulla, ut supra dictum est, postquam in Africam atque in castra Marii cum equitatu venit, rudis antea et ignarus belli, solertissimus omnium in paucis tempestatibus factus est. Ad hoc milites benigne appellare; multis rogantibus, aliis per se ipse dare beneficia, invitus accipere, sed ea properantius quam Wes mutuum, reddere, ipse ab nullo repetere, magis id laborare, ut illi quam plurimi deberent; joca atque seria cum humillimis agere; in operibus, in agmine atque ad vigilias multus adesse, neque interim, quod prava ambitio solet, consulis aut cujusquam bhni famam iedere, tantummodlo neque consilio neque manu priorem alium pati, plerosque antevenire. Quis rebus et artibus brevi Mario militibusque carissimus factus. XCVII. At Jugurtha, postquam oppidum Capsam aliosque locos munitos et sibi utiles, simul et magnam pecuniam amiserat, ad Bocchum nuntios mittit,'quam

Quem ubi cunctari accepit, et dubium belli atque pacis rationes trahere, rursus, uti antea, proximos ejus donis corrumpit, ipsique Mauro pollicetur Numidire partem tertiam, si aut Romani Africa expulsi, aut, integris suis finibus, bellum compositum foret. Eo prmemio illectus Bocchus cum magna multitudine Jugurthar accedit. Ita amborum exercitu conjuncto, Marium jam in hiberna proficiscentem, vix decima parte die reliqua', invadunt, rati noctem, qum jam aderat, et victis sibi munimento fore, et, si vicissent, nullo impedimento, quia locorum scientes erant; contra Rornanis utrumque casum in tenebris difficiliorem fore. Igitur simul consul ex multis de hostium adventu cognovit, et ipsi hostes aderant; et priusquam exercitus aut instrui, aut sarcinas colligere, denique antequam signum aut imperium ullum accipere quivit, equites Mauri atque Gietuli, non acie neque ullo more prcelii, sed catervatim, uti qqusque foes conglobaverat, in nostros incurrunt. Qui omnes trepidi improviso metu, ac tamen virtutes memores, aut armaa capiebant, aut capientes alios ab hostibus defensabant: pars equos ascendere, obviam ire hostibus: pugna latrocinio magis quam proelio similis fieri: sine signis, sine ordinibus equites pedites permixti'cedere alios, alios obtruncare; multos, contra adversos acerrime pugnantes, ab tergo circumvenire: neque virtus neque arma satis tegere, quod hostes numero plures et undique circmfusi erant. Denique Romani veteres et ob ea scientes belli, si quos locus aut casus. conjunxerat, orbes facere, atque ita ab omnibus partibus simul tecti et instructi hostium vim sustentabant. XCVIII. Neque In eo tam aspero negotio Marius ter

CRISPI SALLUSTII ritus, aut magis quam antea demisso animo fuit; sed cum turma sua, quam ex fortissimis magis quam familiarissimis paraverat, vagari passim, ac modo laborantibus suis succurrere, modo hostes, ubi confertissimi obstiterant, invadere; manu consulere militibus, quoniam imperare, conturbatis omnibus, non poterat. Jamque dies consumptus erat, quum tamen barbari nihil remittere, atque, uti reges praeceperant, noctem pro se rati, acriuis instare. Tumn Marius ex copia' rerum consilium trahit, atque, uti suis receptui locus esset, colles duos propinquos inter se occupat, quorum in uno, castris parum amplo, fons aqume magnus erat, alter usui opportunus quia magn. parte editus et?rmeceps pauca munimenta quarebat. Ceterium apud aquam Sullam cumequitibus noctein agitare jubet: ipse paulatim dispersos milites, neque minus hostibus conturbatis, in unum contrahit, dein cunctos pleno gradu in collem subducit. Ita reges, loci difficultate coacti, prcelio deterrentur; neque tamen suos longiuis abire sinunt, sed, utroqtie colle multitudine circumdato, effusi consedere. Dein crebris ignibus factis, plerumque noctis barbari suo more letari, exsultare, strepere vocibus, et ipsi duces feroces, quia non fugerent, pro victoribus agere. Sed ea cuncta Romanis, ex tenebris et editioribus locis facilia visu, magnoque hortamento erant. XCIX. Plurimum ver6 Marius imperitia hostium confirmatus, quam maximum silentium haberi jubet, ne signa quidem, uti per vigilias solebant, canere. Deinde, ubi lux adventabat, defessis jam hostibus et paulo ante somno captis, de improviso vigiles, item cohortium, turmarum, legionum tubicines simul omnes signa' canere, milites clamorem tollere atque portis erumpere. Mauri

Denique omnes fusi fugatique: arma et signa militaria pleraque cap. ta; pluresque eo prcelio quam omnibus superioribus interempti: nam somno et metu insolito impedita fuga. C. Dein Marius, uti cceperat, in hiberna proficiscitur, que propter commeatum in oppidis maritimis agere decreverat: Neque tamen victoria socors aut insolens factus, sed, pariter ac in conspectu hostium, quadrato agmine incedere. Sulla cum equitatu apud dextimos, in sinistra A. Manlius cum funditoribus et sagittariis, praterea cohortes Ligurum curabat; primos et extremos cam expeditis manipulis tribunos locaverat. Perfugae, minime -cari et regionum scientissimi, hostium iter explorabant. Simul consul, quasi nullo imposito, omnia providere, apud omnes adesse, laudare, increpare merentes. Ipse armatus intentusque, item milites cogebat; neque secus, atque iter facere, castra munire, excubitum in porta cohortes ex legionibus, pro castris equites auxiliarios mittere, prmeterea alios super vallum in munimentis locare: vigilias ipse circumire, non tam difidentia futurum, quae imperavisset, quam uti militibus exoequatus cum imperatore labos volentibus esset. Et sane Marius illoque aliisque temporibus Jugurthini belli pudore magis quam malo exercitum coercebat: quod multi per ambitionem fieri aiebant, pars, quod a pueritia consuetam duritiam et alia, quoe ceteri miserias vocant, voluptati habuisset: nisi tamen respublica pariter ac savissimo imperio, bene atque decore gesta. 8

Page  80 80 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII CI. Igitur quarto denique die, haud longe ab oppido Cirta undique simul speculatores citi sese ostendunt, qua re hostes adesse intelligitur. Sed quia diversi redeuntes, alius ab alia parte, atque omnes idem significabant, consul incertus, quonam modo aciem instrueret, nuilo ordine commutato, adversum omnia paratus ibidem opperitur. Ita Jugurtham spes frustrata, qui copias in quatuor partes distribuerat, ratus ex omnibus aeque aliquos ab tergo hostibus venturos. Interim Sulla, quem primum hostes attigerant, cohortatus suos, turmatim et quam maxime confertis equis, ipse aliique Mauros invadunt; ceteri in loco manentes ab jaculis eminus emissis corpora tegere, et, si qui in manus venerant, obtruncare. Dum eo modo equites prceliantur/Bocchus cum peditibus, quos Volux filius ejus adduxerat, neque in priore pugna, in itir re morati, adfuerant, postremam Romanorum aciem invadunt. Turn Marius apud primos agebat, quod ibi Jugurtha cum plurimis erat., Dein Numida, cognito Bocchi adventu, clam cum paucis ad pedites convertit: ibi Latine (nam apud Numantiam loqui didiceiat) exclamat,'nostros frustra pugnare; paulo ante Marium sua manu interfectum:' simul gladium sanguine oblitum ostendere, quem in pugna, satis impigre occiso pedite nostro, cruentaverat. Quod ubi milites accepere, magis atrocitate rei quam fide nuntii terrentur, simulque barbari animos tollere, et in perculsos Romanos acrius incedere. Jamque paulum ab fuga aberant, quum Sulla, profligatis iis, quos adversuim ierat, rediens ab latere Mauris incurrit. Bocchus statim avertitur. At Jugurtha, dum sustentare suos et prope jam adeptam victoriam retinere cupit, circumventus ab equitibus, dextra, sinistra omnibus occisis, solus inter tela hostium vitabundus erumpit. Atque inter

Page  81 JUGURTHA. 81 im Marius, fugatis equitibus, accurrit auxilio suis, quos pelli jam acceperat. Denique hostes jam undique fusi Tur spectaculum horribile in campis patentibus: sequi, fugere, occidi, capi; equi atque viri afflicti, ac multi, ~rulneribus acceptis, neque fugere posse, neque quietem pati; niti modo, ac statim concidere: postremo omnia, qua visus erat, constrata telis, armis, cadaveribus, et inter ea humus infecta sanguine. CII. Postea loci consul, haud dubie jam victor, pervenit in oppidum Cirtam, quo initio profectus intenderat. Eo post diem quintum, quam iterum barbari male pugnaverant, legati a Boccho veniunt, qui regis verbis ab Mario petivere,' duos quam fidissimos ad eum mitteret: velle de suo et de popuK Romani commodo cum iis disserere.' Ille statim L. Sullam et A. Manlium ire jubet. Qui quamquam acciti ibant, tamen placuit verb,, apud regem facere, utl ingenium aut aversum flecterent, aut cupidum pacis vehementius accenderent. Itaque Sulla, cujus facundie, non etati a Manlio concessum, pauca verba hujuscemodi locutus: "Rex Bocche, magna nobis laetitia est, quum te talem virum di monuere, uti aliquando pacem quam bellum malles; neu te optimum cum pessimo omnium Jugurtha miscendo commaculares; simul nobis demeres acerbarn necessitudinem, pariter te errantem et illum sceleratissimum persequi. Ad hoc populo Romano jam a principio melius visum, amicos quam servos querere: tutiusque rati, volentibus quam coactis imperitare. Tibi vero nulla opportunior nostra amicitia: primum quod procul absumus, in quo offensse minimum, gratia par, ac si prope adessemus: dein, quod parentes abunde habemus, amicorum neque nobis neque cuiquam omnium satis fuit. Atque

Page  82 82 C. CRISPI SALLUSTIT hoc utinam a principio tibi placuisset! Profecto ex populo Romano ad hoc tempus multo plura bona accepisses, quam mala perpessus es. Sed quoniam humanarum reruin Fortuna pleraque regit, cui scilicet placuisse te et vim et gratiam nostram experiri, nunc, quando per illam licet, festina, atque, uti ccepisti, perge. Multa atque opportuna habes, quo facilius errata officiis superes. Postremo hoc in pectus tuum demitte, nunquam populum Romanum beneficiis victum esse; nam, bello quid valeat, tute scis." Ad ea Bocchus placide et benign6; simul pauca pro delicto suo verba facit:'Se non hostili animo, sed ob regnum tutandun arma cepisse: nam Numidie partem, unde vi Jugurtham expulerit, jure belli suam factam; earn vastari a Mario pati nequivisse: preterea, missis antea Romam legatis, repulsum ab amicitia. Ceterum vetera omittere, ac tur, si per Marium liceret, legatos ad senatum missurum.' Dein, copia facta, animus barbari ab amicis flexus, quos Jugurtha, cognita legatione Sullae et Manlii, metuens id, quod parabatur, donis corruperat. CIII. Marius interea, exercitu in hibernis composito, cum expeditis cohortibus et parte equitatus proficiscitur in loca sola, obsessum turrim regiam, quo Jugurtha perfugas omnes praesidium imposuerat. Tur rursus Bocchus, seu reputando, quae sibi duobus proeliis venerant, seu admonitus ab aliis amicis, quos incorruptos Jugurtha reliquerat, ex omni copia necessariorum quinque delegit, quorum et fides cognita, et ingenia validissima erant. Eos ad Marium, ac deinde, si placeat, Romam legatos ire jubet; agendarum rerum, et quocumque modo belli corn. ponendi licentiam ipsis permittit. Illi mature ad hiber

Eos ille non pro vanis hostibus, ut meriti erant, sed accurate ac liberaliter liabuit; qua re barbari et famam Romanorum avaritiae falsam, et Sullam, ob munificentiam in sese, amicum rati. Nam etiamtum largitio multis ignota erat; munificus nemo putabatur, nisi pariter volens; dona omnia in benignitate habebantur. Igitur queestori mandata Bocchipatefaciunt; simul ab eo petunt, uti fautor consultorque sibi adsit: copias, fidem, magnitudinem regis sui, et alia, quTe aut utilia, aut benevolentiae credebant, oratione extollunt: dein, Sulla omnia pollicito, docti, quo modo apud Marium, item apud senatum, verba facerent, circiter dies quadraginta ibidem opperiuntur. CIV. Marius postquarm, confecto, quo intendert, negotio, Cirtam redit, de adventi legatorum icertior factus, illosque et Sullam Ab Utica venire jubet, item L. Bellienumpraetorem,praeterea omnes undique sertatorii' ordinis; quibuscum mandata Bocchi cognoscit, quis legatis potestas eundi Romam ib consule, interea inducie postulabantur. Ea Sullae et plerisque placuere: pauci ferocius decernunt, scilicet ignari humanarum rerum, qume fluxae et mobiles semper in adversa mutantur. Ceterum Mauri, impetratis omnibus, tres Romam profecti sunt, cum Cn. Octavio Rufo, qui quaestor stipendium in Africam portaverat: duo ad regem redeunt. Ex his Bocchus quum cetera, turn maxime benignitatem et studium SullIe libens accepit. Romm legatis ejus, postquam' errasse regern, et Jugurthme scelere lapsum,' deprecati sunt, amicitiam et foedus petentibus hoc modo respondetur. " Sen8*

CV. Quis rebus cognitis, Bocchus per litteras a Mario petivit,'uti Sullam ad se mitteret, cujus arbitratu de communibus negotiis consuleretur.' Is missus cum presidio equitum atque peditum, item funditorum Belearium: praeterea iere sagittarii et cohors Peligna cum velitaribus armis, itineris properandi causa; neque his secus atque aliis armis adversum tela hostium, quod ea levia sunt, muniti.., Sed in itinere, quinto denique die, Volux, filius Bocchi, repepte in campis patentibus cum mille non ampliius equitibus sese ostendit; qui temere et effuse euntes Sullae aliisque omnibus et numerum ampliorem vero, et hostilem metum efficiebant. Igitur se quisque expedire, arma atque tela tentare, inteidere: timor aliquantus, sed spes amplior, quippe victoribus, et adversum eos, quos saepe vicerant. Interim equites exploratum prsemissi, rem, uti erat, quietam nuntiant. CVI. Volux adveniens questorem appellat dicitque'se a patre Boccho obviam illis simul, et praesidio missum.' Deinde eum et proximum diem sine metu conjuncti eunt P6st, ubi castra locata, et diei vesper erat, repente Maurus incerto vultu, pavens ad Sullam accurrit, dicitque sibi ex speculatoribus cognitum, Jugurtham haud procul abesse:' simul,' uti noctu clam secum profugeret,' rogat atque hortatur. Ille animo feroci negat' se totiens fusum Numidam pertimescere: virtuti suorum satis credere: etiam si certa pestis adesset, mansurum potius,quamproditis, quos ducebat, turpi fuga incertam ac forsitan post paulo morbo interiturae vite parceret.' Ceterimr ab eodem monitus,' uti noctu proficiscerentur,' consilium appro

Page  85 JUGURTHA. 85 bat: ac statim'milites ccenatos esse, in castris ignes quam creberrimos fieri, dein prima vigilia silentio egredi' jubet. Jamque nocturno itinere fessis omnibus, Sulla pariter cum ortu solis castra metabatur, quum equites Mauri nuntiant Jugurtham circiter duum millium intervallo ante consedisse. Quod postquam auditum est, turn vero ingens metus nostros invadit: credere se proditos a Voluce et insidiis circumventos: ac fuere, qui dicerent manu vindicandum, neque apud illum tantum scelus inul. tum relinquendum. CVII. At Sulla, quamquam eadem existimabat, tamen ab injuria Maurum prohibet. Suos hortatur,' uti fortem animum gererent: saepe ante paucis strenuis adversum multitudinem bene pugnatum: quanto sibi in proelio minus pepercissent, tanto tutiores fore: nec quemquam decere, qui manus armaverit, ab inermis pedibus auxilium petere, in maximo metu nudum et caecum corpus ad hostes vertere.' Deinde Volucem, quoniam hostiliafaceret, Jovem maximum obtestatus, ut sceleris atque perfidima Bocchi testis adesset, ex castris abire jubet. Ille lacrymans orare,'ne ea crederet: nihil dolo factum, ac magis calliditate Jugurthae, cui, videlicet speculanti, iter suum cognitum esset, Ceterum, quoniam neque ingentem multitudinem haberet, et spes opesque ejus ex patre suo penderent, credere illum nihil. palam ausurumn, quum ipse filius testis adesset: quare optimum factum videri, per media ejus castra palam transire: sese, vel premissis vel ibidem relictis Mauris, solum cum Sulla iturum.' Ea res, ut in tali negotio, probata: ac statim profecti, quia de improviso acciderant, dubio atque hzesitante Jugurtha, incolumes transeunt. Deinde paucis diebus, quo ire intenderant, perventum est.

Page  86 86 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII C VIII. Ibi cum Boccho Numida quidam; Aspar nom. ine, multium et familiariter agebat; praemissus ab Jugurtha, postquam Sullam accitum audierat, orator, et subdole speculatum Bocchi consilia: prseterea Dabar, Massugradae filius, ex gente Masinissue, ceterum materno genere impar (nam pater ejus ex concubina ortus erat) Mauro ob ingenii multa bona carus acceptusque. Quem Bocchus fidum esse Romanis multis ante tempestatibus expertus, illico ad Sullam nuntiatum mittit,'paratum sese facere, quse populus Romanus vellet: colloquio diem, locum, tempus ipse deligeret; consulta sese omnia cum illo integra habere: neu Jugurthte legatum pertimesceret; quo res communis licentius gereretur; nam ab insidiis ejus aliter caveri nequivisse.' Sed ego comperior Bocchum magis Punica fide, quam ob ea, quae predicabat, simul Romanos et Numidam spe pacis attinuisse, multinmque cum animo suo volvere solitum, Jugurtham Romanis. an illi Sullam traderet: libidinem adversum nos, metum pro nobis suasisse. CIX. Igitur Sulla respondit,'pauca coram Aspare locuturum; cetera occulte, aut nullo aut quam paucisslmis presentibus;' simul edocet, qua sibi responderentur. Postquam, sicuti voluerat, congressi, dicit'se missum a consule venisse quaesitum ab eo, pacem an bellum agitaturus foret.' Tum rex, uti preceptum fuerat,'post diem decimum redire' jubet;'ac nihil etiam nunc decrevisse, sed illo die responsurum:' deinde ambo in sua castra digressi. Sed ubi plerumque noctis processit, Sulla a Boccho occulte arcessitur: ab utroque tantummodo fidi interpretes adhibentur; praterea Dabar internuntius, sanctus vir et ex sententia ambobus: ac statim sic rex incipit:

Page  87 JUGURTHA. 87 CX. "Nunquam ego ratus sum fore, uti rex maximus in hac terra et omnium, quos novi, privato homini gratiam deberem. Et, mehercule, Sulla, ante te cognitum, multis orantibus, aliis ultro egomet opem tuli, nullius indigui. Id imminutum, quod ceteri dolere solent, ego laetor: fuerit mihi eguisse aliquando amicitiae tuse, qua apud animum meum nihil carius habeo. Id adeo experiri licet' arma, viros, pecuniam, postremo quidquid animo libet, sume, utere: et, quoad vives, nunquam tibi reditam gratiam putaveris; semper apud me integra erit: denique nihil, me:sciente, frustra voles. Nam, ut ego existimo, regem armis quam munificentia vinci minus flagitiosum. Ceterum de republica vestrY, cujus curator huc missus es, daucis accipe. Bellurn ego populo Romano neque feci, neque factum unquam volui: fines meos adversum armatos armis tutatus sum. Id omitto, quando vobis ita placet: gerite, uti vultis cum Jugurtha bellum.- Ego flumen Mulucham, quod inter me et- Micipsam fuit, non egrediar,:eque Jugurtham id intrare sinam. Prweterea, si quid meque vobisque dignum petiveris, haud repulsus abibis." CXI. Ad ea Sulla pro se breviter et modice; de pace et de communibus rebus multis disseruit. Denique regi patefecit,'quod polliceatur, seatum et populum Romanum, quoniam amplius armis valuissent, non in gratiam habituros; faciendum aliquid, quod illorum magis quam sua retulisse videretur. Id adeo in promptu esse, quoniam Jugurthae copiam haberet: quem si Romanis tradidisset, fore, uti illi plurimum deberetur; amicitiamln fcedus, Numidice partem, quam nunc peteret, tunc ultro adventuram.' Rex primo negitare:'affinitatem, cognationem, praeterea fcedus intervenisse: ad hoc metuere, ne, fluxa fide usus, popularium animos averteret, quis et Ju

Ceterum ad simulandam pacem, cujus Numida, defessus bello, avidissimus, que utilia visa, constituunt. Ita, composito dolo, digrediuntur. CXII. At rex postero die Asparem, Jugurthm legatum, appellat, dicitque' sibi per Dabarem ex Sulla cognitum, posse conditionibus bellum poni: quamobrem regis sui sententiam exquireret.' Ille laetus in castra Jugurthme venit. Deinde, ab illo cuncta edoctus, properato itinere, post diem octavum redit ad Bocchum, et ei nuntiat'Jugurtham cupere omnia, qus imperarentur, facere, sed Mario parum fidere: saepe antea cum imperatoribus Romanis pacem conventam frustra fuisse. Ceteruin Bocchus, si ambobus consultum, et ratam pacem vellet, daret operam, ut una ab omnibus, quasi de pace, in colloquium veniretur, ibique sibi Sullam traderet. Quum talem virum in potestatem habuisset, tum fore, uti jussu senatus atque populi Romani fcedus fieret: neque hominem nobilem, non sua ignavia sed ob rempublicam in hostium potestate. Jelictum iri.' CXIII. Hsec Maurus secum ipse diu volvens tandem promisit. Ceterum dolo an vere cunctatus, parum comperimus: sed pleruimque regise voluntates, ut vehementes, sic mobiles, sepe ipsse sibi adversse. Postea, tempore et loco constituto, in colloquium uti de pace veniretur, Bocchus Sullam modo, modo Jugurthee legatum appellare, benigne habere, idem ambobus polliceri: illi pariter lketi, ac spei bonse pleni esse. Sed nocte ea, quae proxima fuit ante diem colloquio decretum, Maurus, adhibitis amicis, ac statim, immutata voluntate, remotis, dicitur secum ipse multa agitavisse, vultu corporis pariter atque animo

Deinde, ubi dies advenit, et ei nuntiatum est Jugurtham haud procul abesse; cum paucis amicis et questore nostro, quasi obvius honoris causa, procedit in tumulum facillimum visu insidiantibus. Eodem Numida cum plerisque necessariis suis inermis, uti dictum erat, accedit; ac statim, signo dato, undique simul ex insidiis invaditur. Ceteri obtruncati: Jugurtha Sulle vinctus traditur, et ab eo ad Marium deductus est. CXIV. Per idem tempus adversumn Gallos, ab ducibus nostris Q. Cppione et Cn. Manlio male pugnaturn: quo metu Italia omnis contremuerat. Ibique et inde usque ad nostram memoriam Romani sic 1 —buere:'alia omnia virtuti sum prona esse; cum Gallis pro salute, non pro gloria certare.' Sed postquam bellum in Numidia confectum, et Jugurtham vinctum adduci Romam nuntiatum est, Marius consul absens factus, et ei decreta provincia Gallia: isque calendis Januariis magna gloria consul triumphavit. Ea tempestate spes atque opes civitatis in illo site.

Sed nostra omnis vis in animo et corpore sita est: animi imperio, corporis servitio magis utimur: alterum nobis cum dis, alterum cum belluis commune est. Quo mihi rectius videtur ingenii quam virium opibus gloriam queerere, et, quoniam vita ipsa, qua fruimur, brevis est, memoriam nostri quam maxime longam efficere. Nam divitiarum et formae gloria fluxa atque fragilis est; virtus clara aeternaque habetur. Sed diu magnum inter mortales certamen fuit, vine corporis an virtute animi res militaris magis procederet; nam et, prius qu'am incipias, consulto, et, ubi consulueris, mature facto opus est. Ita utrumque per se indigens, alterum alterius auxilio eget. II. Igitur initio reges (nam in terris nomen imperii id. primum fuit) diversi, pars ingenium, alii corpus exercebant: etiamtum vita hominum sine cupiditate agitabatur, sua cuique satils placebant. Postea vero quam in Asia Cyrus, in Graecia Lacedmmonii et Athenienses 91 9

Page  92 92 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII ccepere urbes atque nationes subigere, libldinem dominandi causam belli habere, maximam gloriam in maximo imperio putare; turn demum periculo atque negotiis compertum est in bello plurimum ingenium posse. Qu6d si ra)gum atque imperatorum animi virtus in pace ita uti in bello valeret, mquabilius atque constantiuis sese res humanae haberent; neque aliud alio ferri, neque mutari ac misceri omnia cerneres. Nam imperium facile his artibus retinetur, quibus initio partum est. Verum ubi pro labore desidia, pro continentia et zequitate libido atque superbia invasere, fortuna simul cum moribus immutatur. Ita imperium semper ad optimum quemque a minis bono transfertur. Qume homines arant, naviganlt, aedificant, virtuti omnia parent. Sed multi mortales, dediti ventri atque /somno, indocti incultique vitam, sicuti peregrinantes, transiere; quibus profecto contra naturam corpus voluptati, anima oneri fuit. Eorum ego vitam mortemque juxtha astimo, quoniam de utraque siletur. Vertum enimvero is demum mihi vivere atque fruj anima videtur, qui, aliquo negotio intentus, praeclarifacinoris aut artis bony famam querit. Sed in magna copia rerum aliud alii natura iter ostendit. III. Pulchrum est bene facere reipublicae; etiam bene dicere haud absurdum est; vel pace vel bello clarum fieri licet; et qui fecere, et qui facta aliorum scripsere, multi laudantur.- Ac mihi quidem, tametsi haudqua quam par gloria sequitur scriptorem et auctorem rerum, tamen in primis arduum videtur res gestas scribere: primum, quod facta dictis sunt exsequanda; dehinc, quia plerique, qume delicta reprehenderis, malevolentia et invidia dicta putant; ubi de magna virtute et gloria bonorum memores, quse sibi quisque facilia factu putLt, vequo

Page  93 CATILINA. 93 animo accipit; supra ea, veluti ficta pro falsis ducit. Sed ego adolescentulus initio, sicuti plerique, studio ad Iempublicam latus sum, ibique mihi adversa multa fuere. Nam pro pudore, pro abstinentia, pro virtute, audacia, largitio, avaritia vigebant. Quee tametsi animus aspernabatur, insolens malarum artium, tamen inter tanta vitia imbecilla aetas ambitione corrupta tenebatur; a me, quum ab reliquis malis moribus dissentirem, nihilo minms honoris cupido eademque, quse ceteros, fama atque invidia vexabat. IV. Igitur ubi animus ex multis miseriis atque periculis requievit, et mihi reliquatm etatem a republics procul habendam decrevi, non fuit consilium socordia atque desidia bonum otium conterere; neque vero agrum colendo aut venando, servilibus officiis, intentum awtatem agere; sed a quo incepto studioque me arnfitio mala detinuerat, eodem rreressus, statui res gestas populi Romani carptim, ut queeque memoria digna videbantur, perscribere; eo magis, quod mihi a spe, metu, partibus reipublicee animus liber erat. Igitur de Catilina conjuratione, quam verissime potero, paucis absolvam. Nam id facinus in primis ego memorabile existimo sceleris atque periculi novitate. De cujus hominis moribus pauca prius explananda sunt, quam initium narrandi faciam. V. Lucius Catilina, nobili genere natus, fuit magna vi et animi et corporis, sed ingenio malo pravoque. i Huic ab adolescenti& bella intestina, credes, rapinse, discordia civilis grata fuere, ibique juventutem suam exercut. Corpus patiens inedie, vigili;e, algoris, supra quam ciquam credibile est. Animus audax, subdolus, varius. cujus rei libet simulator ac dissimulator, alieni appetens, sui profusus, ardens in cupiditatibus; satis eloquentire,

Page  94 94 C. CRISPI SAiLUSTII sapientia parum. Vastus animus immoderata, incredibilia, nimis alta semper cupiebat. Hune post dominationem Lucii Sullae libido maxima invaserat reipublica capiendae; neque id quibus modis assequeretur, dum sibi regnum pararet, quidquam pensi habebat. Agitabatui magis magisque in dies animus ferox inopia rei familiaris et conscientia scelerum; quee utraque his artibus auxerat, quas supra memoravi. Incitabant preeterea corrupti civitatis mores, quos pessima ac diversa inter se mala, luxuria atque avaritia, vexabant.' Res ipsa hortari videtur, quoniam de moribus civitatis tempus admonuit, supra repetere, ac paucis instituta majorum domi militiaeque, quomodo rempublicam habuerint, quantamque reliquerint, ut paulatim immutata, ex pulcherrirna pessima ac flagitiosissima facta sit, disserere. VI. Urbem Romam, sicuti ego accepi, condidere atque habuere initio Trojani, qui, Aenea duce, profugi sedibus incertis vagabantur; cumque his Aborigines, genus hominum agreste, sine legibus, sine imperio, liberum at — que solutum.. Hi postquam in una moenia convenrre, dispari genere, dissimili lingua, alius alio more vivntes, incredibile memoratu est, quam facile coaluerint. Sed postquam res eorum civibus, moribus, agris aucta, satis prospera satlsque pollens videbatur, sicuti pleraque mortalium habentur, invidia ex opulentia orta est. Igitur reges populique finitimi bello tentare, pauci ex amicis auxilio esse; nam ceteri metu perculsi a periculis aberant. At Romani domi militieque intenti festinare, parare, alius alium hortari, hostibus obviam ire, libertatem, patriam parentesque armis tegere. Post, ubi pericula virtute propulerant, sociis atque amicis auxilia portabant; magisque dandis quam accipiendis beneficiis

Page  95 CATILINA. 95 amicitias parabant. Imperium legitimum, nomen imperii regium habebant: delecti, quibus corpus annis imfirmum, ingenium sapientia validum erat, reipublicae consultabant. Hi vel aetate vel curve similitudine Patres appellabantur. Post, ubi regium imperium, quod initio conservandae libertatis atque augendea reipublicae fuerat, in superbiam dominationemque convertit, immutato more, annua imperia binosque imperatores sibi fecere. Eo modo minime posse putabant per licentiam insolescere animum humanum. VII. Sed ea tempestate cceplre se quisque magis extollere, magisque ingenium in promptu habere. Nam regibus boni quam mali suspectiores sunt, semperque his aliena virtus formidolosa est. Sed civitas, incredibile memoratu est, adepta libertate, quantum brevi creverit: tanta cupido gloriae incesserat. Jam primum juventus, simulac belli patiens erat, in castris per laboris usum militiam discebat; magisque in decoris armis et militaribus equis, quam in scortis atque conviviis, libidinem habebant. Igitur talibus viris non labos insolitus, non locus ullus asper aut arduus erat, non armatus hostis formidolosus: virtus omnia domuerat. Sed glorim maximum certamen inter ipsos erat: sic se quisque hostem ferire, murum ascendere, conspici, dum tale facinus faceret, properabat; eas divitias, eam bonam famam magnamque nobilitatem putabant; laudis avidi, pecunime liberales erant; gloriam ingentem, divitias honestas volebant. Memorare possem, quibus in locis maximas hostium copias populus Romanus parva manu fuderit, quas urbes natura munitas pugnando ceperit, ni ea res longius nos ab incepto traheret. VIII. Sed profecto fortuna in omni re dominatur; ea 9*

Page  96 96 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII res cunctas ex libidine magis quam ex vero celebrat obscuratque. Atheniensium res gestee, sicuti ego existimo, satis ample magnificemque fuere; verum aliquanto minores tamen, quam fama feruntur. Sed quia provenere ibi scriptorum magna ingenia, per terrarum orbem Atheniensium facta pro maximis celebrantur. Ita eorum, qui ea fecere, virtus tanta habetur, quantum verbis eam potuere extollere praeclara ingenia. At populo Romano nunquam ea copia fuit, quia prudentissimus quisque negotiosus maxime erat; ingenium nemo sine corpore exercebat; optirnus quisque facere quam dicere, sua ab aliis bene facta laudari, quam ipse aliorum narrare malebat. IX. Igitur domi militiseque boni mores colebantur: concordia maxima, minima avaritia erat; jus bonumque apud eos non legibus magis quam natura valebat. Jurgia, discordias, simultates cum hostibus exercebant; cives cum civibus de virtute certabant: in suppliciis deorum magnifici, domi parci, in amicis fideles erant. Duabus his artibus, audacia in bello, ubi pax evenerat, aequitate seque remque publicam curabant. Quarum rerum ego maxima documenta haec habeo, quod in bello saspius vindicatum est in eos, qui contra imperium in hostem pugnaverant, quique tardius, revocati, prcelio excesserant, quam qui signa relinquere, aut, pulsi loco, cedere ausi erant; in pace vero, quod beneficiis magis quam metu imperium agitabant, et, accepta injuria, ignoscere quam persequi malebant. X. Sed ubi labore atque justitia respublica crevit, reges magni bello domiti, nationes ferat et populi ingentes vi subacti, Carthago, aemula imperii Romani, ab stirpe interiit, cuncta maria terrceque patebant, ssevire fortuna ac miscere omnia ccepit. Qui labores, pericula, dubias

Page  97 CATILINA. 97 atque asperas res facile toleraverant his olium, divitie, optandae alias, oneri miserieque fuere Igitur primo pecuniae, deinde imperii cupido crevit: ea quasi materies omnium malorum fuere. Namque avaritia fidem, probitatem, ceterasque artes bonas subvertit; pro his superbiam, crudelitatem, deos negligere, omnia venalia habere edocuit. Ambitio multos mortales falsos fieri subegit; aliud clausum in pectore, aliud in lingua promptum habere; amicitias inimicitiasque non ex re sed ex commodo eestimare, magisque vultum quam ingenium bonum habere. Haec primo paulatim crescere, interdum vindicari: post, ubi contagio, quasi pestilentia, invasit, civitas immutata; imperium ex justissimo atque optimo crudele intolerandumque factum. XI. Sed primo magis ambitio quam avaritia animos hominum exercebat, quod tamen vitium propius virtutem erat. Nam gloriam, honorem, imperium bonus et ignavus aeque sibi exoptant; sed ille vera via nititur, huic quia bonae artes desunt, dolis atque fallaciis contendit. Avaritia pecuniae studium habet, quam nemo sapiens concupivit: ea, quasi venenis malis imbuta, corpus animurnque virilem effeminat; semper infinita, insatiabilis est, neque copia neque inopia minuitur. Sed postquam L. Sulla, armis recepta republica, bonis initiis malos eventus habuit, rapere omnes, trahere; domun alius, alius agros cupere, neque modum neque modestiam victores habere, fkeda crudeliaque in cives facinora facere. Hue accedebat, quod L. Sulla exercitum, quem in Asia ductaverat, quo sibi fidum faceret, contra morem majorum luxuriose nimisque liberaliter habuerat. Loca amcena. voluptaria,,facile in otio feroces militum animos molliverant. Ibi primuim insuevit exercitus populi'Ro

Page  98 98 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII mani amare, potare, signa, tabulas pictas, vasa caelata mirari, ea privatim ac publice rapere, delubra spoliare, sacra profanaque omnia polluere. Igitur hi milites, postquam victoriam adepti sunt, nihil reliqui victis fecere. Quippe secunda res sapientium animos fatigant; nedum illi corruptis moribus victoria temperarent. XTI. Postquam divitice honori esse ccepere, et eas gloria, imperiurn, potentia sequebatur, hebescere virtus, paupertas probro haberi, innocentia pro malevolentia duci ccepit. Igitur ex divitiis juventutem luxuria atque avaritia cum superbia invasere: rapere, consumere; sua parvi pendere, aliena cupere; pudorem, pudicitiam, divina atque humana promiscua, nihil pensi neque moderati habere. Operoe pretium est, quum dotnos atque villas cognoveris in urbium modum exeadificatas, visere templa deorum, quae nostri majores, religiosissimi mortales, fecere. Verium illi delubra deorum pietate, domos suas gloria decorabant; neque victis quidquam praeter injurim licentiam eripiebant. At hi contra ignavissimi homines, per summum scelus omnia ea sociis adimere, quse fortissimi viri victores hostibus reliquerant; proinde quasi injpriam facere id demum esset imperio uti. XIII. Nam quid ea memorem, qua, nisi his, qui videre, nemini credibilia sunt, a privatis compluribus subversos montes, maria:constructa esse? Quibus mihi videntur ludibrio fuisse divitia; quippe, quas honeste habere licebat, abuti per turpitudinem properabant. Sed libido stupri, ganeae ceterique cultus non minor incesserat, * * vescendi causa terra marique omnia exquirere; doimire prius quam somni clupido esset; non fameni aut sitim, neque frigus neque lassitudinem opperrt,; sed ea omna luxu antecapere. HEec juventutem, ubi fa

Page  99 CATILINA. 99 miliares opesd4efecerant, ad facinora incendebant. Animus imbutus malis artibus haud facile libidinibus ca'lebat: eo profusius omnibus modis questui atque sumptui deditus erat. XIV. In tanta tamque corrupta civitate Catilina, id quod factu facillimum era-t, omnium flagitiorum atque facinorum circum se, tamquam stipatorum, catervas iabebat. Nam quicumque impudicuS, adulter, ganeo, x: bona patria laceraverat, quique alienum mes grande cbiflaverat, quo flagitium aut facinus redimeret; praeterea Qmnes undique parricidae, sacrilegi, convicti-judi6iis, aut pro factis judicium fimente's; ad hoc, quos manus atque lingua perjurio aut sanguine civili alebat; postremo omnes, quos flagitium, egestas, conscius animus exagitabat; hi Catilinae proximi' familiaresque erant. Quod si quis etiam a culpa vacuus in amicitiam ejus inciderat, quotidiano usu atque illecebris facile par similisque ceteris -efficiebatur. Sed maxime adolescentium familiaritates appetebat; eorum animi iogjes et retate fluxi dolis haud difficulter capiebantur. Nam uti cujusque studium ex retate flagrabat, aliis scorta prIebere, aliis canes atque equos mercari; postremo neque sumptui neque modestis sums parcere, dum illos obnoxios fidosque sibi faceret. Scio fuisse nonnullos, qui ita existimarent, juventutem, quse domum Catiline frequentabat, parum honeste pudicitiam habuisse; sed ex aliis rebus magis, quam quod cuiquam id compertum foret, hec famia valebat. XV. Jam primufm adolescens Catilina multa nefanda stupra fecerat, cum virgine nobili, cum sacerdote Vestas, alia hujuscemodi contra jus fasque. Postremo captus amore Aureliae Orestillae, cujus praeter formam nihil unquam bonus laudavit, quod ea niubere illi ctubitabat,

Page  100 100 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII timeng privignum adulta retate, pro certo crdilltir, necato filio, vacuam domum scelestis nuptiis fecisse. Quam quidem res mihi in primis videtur':causa fuisse facinoris nlaturandi. Namque animus impurus, dis hominibusque infestus, neque vigiliis neque quietibus sedari poterat: ita conscientia mentem excitam vastabat. Igitur colos exsanguis, fcedi oculi, citus modo, modo tardus incessus; prorsus in facie vultuque yegordia inerat. XVI. Sed juventutem, quam, ut supra diLiimus, illexerat multis modis, mala facinora edocebat. Ex illis testes signatoresque falsos commodare; fidem, fortunas, pericula vilia habere, post, ubi eorum famam atque pudorem a'ttriverat, majora alia imperabat. Si causa peccandi in prasens minus suppetebat, nihilo minus insontes sicuti sontes ciMrfTmvenire, jugulare; scilicet, ne per otium torpescerent manus aut animus, gratuito potius malus atque crudelis erat. His amicis sociisque confisus Catilina, simul quod ms alienum per omnes terras ingens erat, et quod plerique Sullani milites, largius suo usi, rapinarum et victorise veteris memores civile bellum exopta'bant, opprimendme reipublicae consilium cepit. In Italia nullus exercitus; Cn. Pompeius in extremis terris bellum gerebat; ipsi consulatum petenti magna spes; senatus nihil sane intentus; tutae tranquilleque res omnes; sed ea prorsus opportuna Catilinme. XVII. Igitur circiter calendas Junias, L. Cesare et C. Figulo consulibus, primo singulos appellare; hortari alios, alios tentare; opes suas, imparatam rempublicam, nmagna prmmia conjurationis d6ie're. Ubi satis explorata sunt, qum voluit, in unum omnes donvocat, quibus maxima necessitudo et plurirmum audacie inerat E6 conven1re senatorii ordinis P. Lentulus Sura, P. Autronius,

Page  101 CATILINA. 101 L. Cassius Longinus, C. Cethegus, P. et Servius Sullse, Servii filii, L. Yargunteius, Q. Annius, M. Porcius Laeca, L. Bestia, Q. Curius; praterea ex equestri ordine M Fulvius Nobilior, L. Statilius, P. Gabinius Capito, C. Cornelius: ad hoc multi ex coloniis et municipiis, domi nobiles. Erant praterea complures paulo occultius consilii hujusce participes nobiles, quos magis dominationis spes hortabatur quam inopia aut alia necessitudo. Ceteriim juventus pleraque, sed maxime nobilium, Catilinam inceptis favebat. Quibus in otio vel magnifice vel molliter vivere copia erat, incerta pro certis, bellumn quam pacem malebant. Fuere item ea tempestate, qui crederent M. Licinium Crassum non ignarum ejus consilii fuisse; quia Cn. Pompeins, invisus ipsi, magnum exercitum ductabat, cujusvis opes voluisse cpntra illius potentiam crescere, simul confisum, si conjuratio valuisset, facile aupd illos principem se fore. XVIII. Sed antea item conjuravere pauci contra rempublicam, in quibus Catilina fuit. De quo, quam verissime potero, dicam. L. Tullo, M. Lepido consulibus, P. Autronius et P. Sulla, designati consules, legibus ambitus interrogati pcenas dederant. Post paulo Catilina, pecuniarum repetundarum reus, prohibitus erat consulatum petere, quod intra legitimos dies' profiteri nequiverat. Erat eodem tempore Cn. Piso, adolescens nobilis, summme audaciae, egens, factiosus, quem ad perturbandam rempublicam inopia atque mali mores stimulabant. Cum hoc Catilina et Autronius circiter nonas Decembres, consilio communicato, parabant in Capitolio calendis Januariis L. Cottam et L. Torquatum consules interficere; ipsi, fascibus correptis, Pisonem cum exercitu ad obtinendas duas Hispanias mittere. Ea re cognita, rursus

Page  102 102 C. CRISPI SALLUSTIT in nonas Februarias consilium caedis transtulerant. Jam turn non consulibus modo, sed plerisque senatoribus perniciem machinabantur. Quodni Catilina maturassset pro curia signum sociis dare, eo die post conditam urbem Romanam pessimum facinus patratum foret. Quia nondum frequentes armati convenerant, ea res consilium diremit. XIX. Postea Piso in citeriorem Hispaniam quaestor pro praetore missus est, adnitente Crasso, quod eum infestum inimicum Cn: Pompeio cognoverat. Neque tamen senatus provinciam invitus dederat; quippe fcedum hominem a republica procul esse volebat; simul quia boni complures presidium in eo putabant, et jam turn potentia Cn. Pompeii formidolosa erat. Sed is Piso in provincia ab equitibus Hispanis, quos in exercitu ductabat, iter faciens occisus est. Sunt, qui ita dicunt, imperia ejus injusta, superba, crudelia barbaros nequivisse pati; alii autem, equites illos, Cn. Pompeii veteres fidosque clientes, voluntate ejus Pisonem aggressos; nunquam Hispanos preeterea tale facinus fecisse, sed imperia seva multa antea perpessos. Nos earn rem in medio relinquemus. De superiore conjuratione satis dictum. XX. Catilina, ubi eos, quos paulo ante memoravi, convenisse videt, tametsi cum singulis multa swpe egerat, tamen in rem fore credens universos appellare et cohortari, in abdita.m partem sedium secedit; atque ibi omnibus arbitris procul amotis, orationemr hujuscemodi habuit. "Ni virtus fidesque vestra spectata mihi forent, nequidquam opportuna res cecidisset; spes magna, dominatio in manibus frustra fuissent: neque ego per ignava aut vana ingenia incerta pro certis captarem. Sed

Page  103 CATILINA. 103 quia multis et magnis tempestatibus vos cognovi fortes fidosque mihi, eo animus ausus est maximum atque pulcherrimum facinus incipere; simul quia vobis eadem, quae mihi, bona malaque esse intellexi: nam idem velle atque idem nolle, ea demum firma amicitia est. Sed, ego quae mente agitavi, omnes jam antea diversi audistis. Ceterum mihi in dies magis animus accenditur, quum considero, quae conditio vitae futura sit, nisi nosmet ipsi vindicamus in libertatem. Nam postquam respublica in paucorum potentium jus atque ditionem concessit, semper illis reges, tetrarchae vectigales esse; populi, nationes stipendia pendere; ceteri omnes, strenui, boni, nobiles atque ignobiles, vulgus fuimus, sine gratia, sine auctoritate, his obnoxii, quibus, si respublica valeret, formidini essemus. Itaque omnis gratia, potentia, honos, divitime apud illos sunt, aut ubi illi volunt; nobis reliqu6re, pericula, repulsas, judicia, egestatem. Quae quousque tandem patiemini, fortissimi viri? Nonne emori per virtutem praestat, quam vitam miseram atque inhonestam, ubi alienae superbiae ludibrio fueris, per dedecus amittere? Veruim enim vero, pro deum atque hominum fidem! victoria in manu nobis est; viget atas, animus valet: contra illis annis atque divitiis omnia consenuerunt. Tantummodo incepto opus est, cetera res expediet. Etenim quis mortalium, cui virile ingenium inest, tolerare potest, illis divitias superare, quas profundant in exstruendo mari et montibus coequandis, nobis rem familiarem etiam ad necessaria deesse? illos binas aut amplius domos continuare, nobis larem familiarem nusquam ullum esse? Quum tabulas, signa, toreumata emunt, nova diruunt, alia aedificant, postremo omnibus nodis pecuniam trahunt, vexant, tamen summa libidine 10

Page  104 104 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII divitias vincere nequeunt. At nobis est domi inopia, foris as alienum; mala res, spes multo asperior. Denique quid reliqui habemus printer miseram animam? Quin igitur expergiscimini? En illa, illa, quam sepe optlistis, libertas, praeterea divitime, decus, gloria in oculis sita sunt! fortuna omnia ea victoribus prarnia posuit. ltes, teinpus, pericula, egestas, belli, spolia magnifica magis, quhm oratio mea, vos hortentur. Vel imperatore vel milite me utimini: neque animus neque corpus a vobis aberit. Haec ipsa, ut spero, vobiscum una' consul again; nisi forte me animus fallit, et vos servire magis quam imperare parati estis." XXI. Postquam accepere ea homines, quibus mala abunde. omnia erant, sed neque res neque spes bona ulla, tametsi illis quieta movere magna merces videbatur, tamen postulare plerique, uti proponeret, quse conditio belli foret, quam prsemia armis peterent, quid ubique opis aut spei baberent. Tumr Catilina polliceri tabulas novas, proscriptionem locupletium, magistratus, sacerdotia, rapinas, alia omnia, quae bellum atque libido victorum fert. Praterea'esse in Hispania citeriore Pisonem, in Mauritania cum exercitu P. Sittium Nucerinum, consilii sui participes: petere consulatum C. Antonium, quem sibi collegam fore speraret, hominem et familiarem et omnibus necessitudinibus circumventum: cum eo se consulem initium agendi facturum.' Ad hoe maledictis indrepat omnes bonos, suorum unumquemque nominans laudare; admonebat alium egestatis, alium cupiditatis sure, complures periculi aut igrominia;, multos victorie Sullanme, quibus ea prmdae fuerat. Postquam omnium animos alacres videt, cohortatus ut petitionem suam curse haberent, conventum dimisit.

Page  105 CATILINA. 105 XXII,'uere ea tempestate, qui dicerent Catilinarn, oratione habita, quum ad jusjurandum populares sceleris sui adigeret, humani corporis sanguinem vino permixtum in pateris circumtulisse; inde, quum post exsecrationem omnes degustavissent, sicuti in solemnibus sacris fieri consuevit, aperuisse consilium suum; atque eo, dictitare, fecisse, quo inter se magis fidi forent, alius alii tanti facinoris conscii. Nonnulli ficta et haec et multa praaterea existimabant ab iis, qui Ciceronis invidiam, quae postea orta est, leniri credebant atrocitate sceleris eorum, qui pcenas dederant. Nobis ea res pro magnitudine parum comperta est. XXIII. Sed in ea conjuratione fuit Q. Curius, natus haud obscuro loco, flagitiis atque facinoribus coopertus; quem censores senatu probri gratia moverant. Huic homini non minor vanitas inerat quam audacia: neque reticere, quse audierat, neque suamet ipse scelera occultare; prorsus neque dicere neque facere quidquam pensi habebat. Erat ei cum Fulvia, muliere nobili, stupri vetus consuetudo: cui quum minius gratus esset, quia inopia minus largiri poterat, repente glorians maria montesque polliceri ccepit; minari interdum ferro, nisi obnoxia foret; postremo ferocius agitare, quam solitus erat. At Fulvia, insolentia Curii causa cognita, tale periculum reipublicae haud occultum habuit; sed, sublato auctore, de Catilinae conjuratione, quae quoque modo audierat, compluribus narravit. Ea res in primis studia hominum accendit ad consulatum mandandum M. Tullio Ciceroni. Namque antea pleraque nobilitas invidia estuabat, et quasi pollli consulatum credebant, si eum quamvis egregius homo novus adeptus foret. Sed ubi periculum advenit, invidia atque superbia post fuere.

Page  106 106 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII XXIV. Igitur, comitiis habitis, consules declarantur M. Tullius et C. Antonius; quod factum primo populares conjurationis concusserat. Neque tamen Catilinm furor nlinuebatur, sed in dies plura agitare, arma per Italiam locis opportunis parare, pecuniam sua aut amicorum fide sumptam mutuam Faesulas ad Manlium quemdam portare, qui postea princeps fuit belli faciendi. Ea tempestate plurimos cujusque generis homines adscivisse sibi dicitur, mulieres etiam aliquot, qum primo ingentes sumptus stupro corporis toleraverant, post, ubi Tetas tantummodo quzestui neque luxuriae modum fecerat, res alienum grande conflaverant. Per eas se Catilina credebat posse servitia urbana sollicitare, urbem incendere, viros earum vel adjungere sibi, vel interficere. XXV. Sed in his erat Sempronia, quoe multa sepe virilis audaciae facinora commiserat. Heec mulier genere atque forma, prmeterea viro atque liberis satis fortunata fuit: litteris Greecis atque-Latinis docta, psallere et saltare elegantius, quam necesse est probae, multa alia, quae instrumenta luxurie sunt. Sed ei cariora semper omnia quam decus atque pudicitia fuit: pecuniae an famme minus parceret, haud facile discerneres; libidine sic accensa, ut saepius peteret viros, quam peteretur. Sed ea ssepe antehac fidem prodiderat, creditum abjuraverat, csedis conscia fierat, luxuria atque inopia praeceps abierat. Verum ingenium ejus haud absurdum; posse versus facere, jocum movere, sermone uti vel modesto, vel molli, vel procaci; prorsus multe facetiae multusque lepos incrat. XXVI. His rebus comparatis, Catilina nihilo minuis in proximum annum consulatum petebat; sperans, si designatus foret, facile se ex voluntate Antonio usurum. Ne

Page  107 CATILINA. 107 que interea quietus erat, sed omnibus modis insidias parabat Ciceroni. Neque illi tamen ad cavendum dolus aut astutiae deerant. Namque a principo consulatus sui, multa pollicendo per Fulviam, effecerat, ut Q. Curius, de quo paulo ante memoravi, consilia Catilinae sibi proderet. Ad hoc collegam suum Antonium pactione provinciae perpulerat, ne contra rempublicam sentiret: circum se pracsidia amicorum atque clientium occulte habebat. Postquam dies comitiorum venit, et Catilina neque petitio neque insidia, quas consuli in campo fecerat, prospere cessere, constituit bellum facere, et extrema omnia experiri, quoniam quse occulte tentaverat, aspera fcedaque evenerant. XXVII. Igitur C. Manlium Faesulas atque in earn partem Etruriee, Septimium quemdam Camertem in agrum Picenum, C. Julium in Apuliam dimisit; praeterea alium alio, quem ubique opportunum sibi fore credebat. Interea Rom1 -. — nmul umnoliri; consuli insidias tendere, parare ince.., opportuna loca armatis hominibus obsidere, ipse cum telo esse, item alios jubere, hortari, uti semper intenti paratique essent, dies noctesque festinare, vigilare, neque insomniis neque labore fatigari. Postremo ubi multa agitanti nihil procedit, rursus intempesta nocte conjurationis principes convocat per M. Porcium Laecam, ibique multa de ignavia corum questus, docet'se Manlium procmisisse ad earn multitudinem, quam ad capienda arma paraverat, item alios in alia loca opportuna, qui initium belli facerent, sequc ad exercitum proficisci cupere, si prius Ciceronem oppressisset; eum suis consiliis multium officere.'

Vargunteius senator, constituere ea nocte paulo post cum armatis hominibus, sicuti salutatum, introire ad Ciceronem, ac de improviso domi suas imparatum confodere. Curius ubi intelligit, quantum periculi consuli impendeat, propere per Fulviam Ciceroni dolum, qui parabatur, enuntiat. Ita illi, janua prohibiti, tantum facinus frustra susceperant. Interea Manlius in Etruria plebem sollicitare, egestate si-iul ac dolore injuria novarum rerum cupidam, quod Sulle dominatione agros bonaque omnia amiserat; praeterea latrones cujusque generis, quorum in ea regione magna copia erat; nonnullos ex Sullanis colonis, quibus libido atque luxuria ex magnis rapinis nihil reliqui feccrant. XXIX. Ea quum Ciceroni nuntiarentur, ancipiti male permotus, quod neque urbem ab insidiis privato consilio longiis tueri poterat, neque exercitus Manlii quantus aut quo consilio foret, satis' s:m habebat, rem ad senatum refert, jam antea..gi rumoriuus exagitatam. Itaque, quod plerumque in atroci negotio solet, senatus decrevit,'darent operam consules, ne quid respublica detrimenti caperet.' Ea potestas per senatum, more Romano, magistratui maxima permittitur, exercitum parare, bellum gerere, coercere omnibus modis socios atque cives, domi militieque imperium atque judicium summum habere; aliter sine populi jussu nulli earum rerum consuli jus est. XXX. Post paucos dies L. Saenius senator in senatu litteras recitavit, quas Fasulis allatas sibi dicebat, in quibus scriptum erat'C. Manlium arma cepisse cum magna multitudine, ante diem sextum calendas Novembres.' Simul, id quod in tali re solet, alii porteiita atque

Page  109 CATILINA. 109 prodigia nuntiabant, alii'conventus fieri, arma portari, Capuse atque in Apulia servile bellum moveri.' Igitur senati decreto Q. Marcius Rex Faesulas, Q. Metellus Creticus in Apuliam circumque loca missi: ni utrique ad urbem irperatores erant, impediti, ne triumpharent, calumnia paucorum, quibus omnia, honesta atque inhonesta, vendere mos erat. Sed praitores Q. Pompeius Rufus Capuam, Q. Metellus Celer in agrum Picenum; hisque permissum,' uti pro tempore atque periculo exercitum compararent.' Ad hoc,' si quis indicavisset de conjuratione, qum contra rempublicam facta erat, praemium' decrevere'servo libertatem et sestertia centum, libero impunitatem ejus rei et sestertia ducenta;' itemque decrevere,'uti gladiatorive familiae Capuam et in cetera municipia distribuerentur, pro cujusque opibus; Rome per,totam urbem vigiliav haberentur, hisque minores magistratus prveessent.' XXXI. Quibus rebus pet Lnota civitas, atque immutata urbis facies erat; ex summa laetitia atque lascivia, que diuturna quies pepererat, repente omnes tristitia invasit; festinare, trepidare; neque loco nec homini cuiquam satis credere; neque bellum gerere, neque pacem habere; suo quisque metu pericula metiri. Ad hoc mulieres, quibus relpublic magnitudine belli timor insolitus incesserat, afflictare sese, manus supplices ad ccelum tendere, miserari parvos liberos, rogitare, omnia pavere, superbia atque deliciis omissis, sibi patriseque diffidere. At Catilinve crudelis animus eadem illa movebat, taretsi prasidia parabantur, et ipse lege Plautia interrogatus erat ab L. Paulo. Postremo dissimulandi causa et ut sui expurgandi, sicuti jurgio lacessitus foret, in senatum venit. Turn M. Tullius consul, sive praesentiam ejus

Page  110 110 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII tiniens, sive ira commotus, orationem habuit luculentam atque utilem reipublicae, quam postea scriptam edidit. Sed, ubi ille assedit, Catilina, ut erat paratus ad dissimulanda omnia, demisso. vultu, voce supplici postulare,'patres conscripti ne quid de se temere crederent: ea familia ortum, ita ab adolescentia vitam instituisse, ut omnia bona in spe haberet: ne existimarent, sibi, patricio homini, cujus ipsius atque majorum plurima beneficia in plebem Romanam essent, perdita republica opus esse, quum earn servaret M. Tullius, inquilinus civis urbis Romre.' Ad hec maledicta alia quum adderet, obstrepere omnes, hostem atque parricidam vocare. Tum ille furibundus: " Quoniam quidem circumventus," inquit, "ab inimicis proeceps agor, incendium meum ruina restinguam." XXXII. Dein se ex curia domurn proripuit. Ibi multa secum ipse volvens, quod neque insidiae consuli procedebant, et ab incendio intelligebat urbem vigiliis munitam, optimum factun credens exercitum augere, ac, prius quam legiones scriberentur, antecapere, que bello usui forent, nocte intempesta cum paucis in Manliana castra profectus est. Sed Cethego atque Lentulo ceterisque, quorum cognoverat promptam audaciam, mandat,'quibus rebus possent, opes factionis confirment, insidias consuli maturent, caedem, incendia, aliaque belli facinora parent: sese propediem cum magno exercitu ad urbem accessuruin.' Dum hrec Romee geruntur, C. Manlius ex suo numero legatos ad Marcium Regem mittit, cum mandatis hujuscemodi: XXXIII. "Deos hominesque testamur, imperator, nos arma neque contra patriam cepisse, neque quo periculum aiiis faceremus, sed uti corpora nostra ab injuria tuta forent, qui miseri, egentes, violentia atque crudelitate

Page  111 CATILINA. 11I fceneratorumrplerique patrise, sed omnes fama atque fortunis expertes sumus: neque cuiquam nostrum licuit more majorum lege uti, neque, amisso patrimonio, liberum corpus habere: tanta saeviia fceneratorum atque pratoris fuit. Smepe majores vestrum miseriti plebis Romanae, decretis suis inopiae opitulati,sunt: ac novissime memoria nostra, propter magnitudinem weris alieni, volentibus omnibus bonis, argentum aere solutum est7 Saepe ipsa plebes, aut dominandi studio permota, aut superbia magistratuum, armata a patribus secessit. At nos non imperium neque divitias petimus, quarum rerum causa bella atque certamina omnia inter mortales sunt, sed libertatem, quam nemo bonus nisi cum anima simul amittit. Te atque senatum obtestamur, consulatis miseris civibus; legis presidium, quod iniquitas praetoris eripuit, restituatis; neve earm nobis necessitudinem imponatis, ut quneramus, quonam mode, maxime ulti sanguinem nostrum, pereamus." XXXIV. Ad haec Q. Marcius respondit:'Si quid ab senatu petere vellent, ab armis discedant, Romam supplices proficiscantur: ea mansuetudine atque misericordia senatum populumque Romanum semper fuisse, ut nemo unquam ab eo frustra auxilium petiverit.' At Catilina ex itinere plerisque consularibus, praeterea optimo cuique litteras mittit:' Se falsis criminibus circumventum, quoniam factioni inimicorum resistere nequiverit, fortunta cedere, Massiliam in exsilium proficisci: non quo sibi tanti sceleris conscius esset, sed uti respublica quieta foret, neve ex sua contentione seditio oriretur.' Ab his longe diversas litteras Q. Catulus in senatu recitavit, quas sibi nomrine Catilince redditas dicebat: earum exemplum infra scripturn est.

Page  112 112 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII XXXV. "L. Catilina Q. Catulo. Egregia tua fides re cognita gratam in magnis meis periculis fiduciam commendationi nmee tribuit. Quamobrem defensionem in novo consilio non statui parare: satisfactionem ex nulla conscientia de culpa proponere decrevi: quam me dius fidius veram licet cognoscas. Injuriis contumeliisque concitatus, quod, fructu laboris industriaeque mere privatus, staturn dignitatis non obtinebam, publicam miserorum causam pro mea consuetudine suscepi: non quin Res alienum meis nominibus ex possessionibus solvere possem, quum et alienis nominibus liberaiitas Orestilhle suis filiaeque copiis persolveret; sed quod non dignos homines honore honestatos videbam, meque falsa suspicione alienatum esse sentiebam. Hoc nomine satis honestas pro meo casu spes relique dignitatis conservandae sum secutus. Plura quum scribere vellem, nuntiatum est vim mihi parari. Nunc Orestillam commendo, tueuque fidei trado: earn ab injuria defendas, per liberos tuos rogatus. Haveto." XXXVI. Sed ipse paucos dies commoratus apud C Flaminium in agro Arretino, dum vicinitatem, antea sollicitatam, armis exornat; cum fascibus atque aliis imperii insignibus in castra ad Manlium contendit. Haec ubi Rornae comperta sunt, senatus Catilinam et Manlium hostes judicat; ceterae multitudini diem statuit, ante quam sine fraude liceret ab armis discedere, prater rerum capitalium condemnatis. Preeterea decernit,'uti consules delectum habeant; Antonius curl cxercitu Catilinam persequi maturet; Cicero urbi prmsidio sit.' Ea temppstate mihi imperium populi Romani multo maxime miserabile visum est cui quum ad occasum ab ortu solis omnia domiita armis parerent, domi otium atque divitic, quae

Page  113 CATILINA. 113 prina mortales putant, affluerent, fuere tamen cives, qui seque remque publicam obstinatis animis perditum irent Namque duobus senati decretis, ex tanta multitudine, neque prmmio inductus conjurationem patefecerat, nequc ex c;stris Catilinae quisquam omnium discesserat: tanta vi^ morbi, uti tabes, plerosque civium animos invaserat. XXXVII. Neque solum illis aliena mens erat, qui conscii conjurationis fuerant, sed omnino cuncta plebes novarum rerum studio Catilinme incepta probabat. Id adeo more suo videbatur facere. Nam semper in civitate, quibus opes nulls sunt, bonis invident, malos extollunt; vetera odere, nova exoptant; odio suarum rerum mutari -omnia student; turba atque seditionibus sine cura aluntur, quoniam egestas facile habetur sine damno. Sed urbana plebes, ea vero prieceps ierat multis de causis. Primum omnium, qui ubique probro atque petulantia maxime prsestabant, item alii, per dedecora patrimoniis amissis, postremr omnes, quos flagitium aut facinus domo expulerat, hi Romam, sicuti in sentinam, confluxerant. Deinde multi memores Sullanre victoriae, quod ex gregariis militibus alios senatores videbant, alios ita divites, uti regio victu atque cultu aetatem agerent, sibi quisque, si in armis forent, ex victoria talia sperabant. Prseterea juventus, qua in agris manuum mercede inopiam toleraverat, privatis atque publicis largitionibus excita, urbanum otium ingrato labori prmetulerat: eos atque alios omnes malum publicum alebat Quo minus mirandum est homines egentes, malis moribus, maxima spe, reipublicae juxta ac sibi consuluisse. Preterea quorum victoria Sulla parentes proscripti, bona erepta, jus libertatis imminutum erat, haud sand alio animo belli eventurn exspectabant. Ad hoc qui

Page  114 114 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII cumque aliarum atque senati partium erant, conturbari rempublicam, quam nmius yalere ipsi malebant. Id ade6 malum multos post annos in civitatem reverterat. XXXVIII. Nam postquam, Cn. Pompeio et M. Crasso consulibus, tribunicia potestas restituta est, homines adolescentes, summam potestatem nacti, quibus aetas animusque ferox erat, ccepere senatum criminando plebem exagitare; dein largiendo atque pollicitando magis incendere; ita ipsi clari potentesque fieri. Contra eos summa ope nitebatur pleraque nobilitas, senati specie, pro sua magnitudine. Namque, uti paucisl eruim"'bsolvam, per illa tempora quicumque rempuibicam agitavere, honestis nominibus, alii, sicuti populi jura defen(lerent, pars, quo senati auctoritas maxima foret, bonum publicum simulantes, pro sua quisque potentia certabant neque illis modestia, neque modus contentionis erat; utrique victoriam crudeliter exercebant. XXXIX. Sed postquam Cn. Pompeius ad bellum maritimum atque Mithridaticum missus est, plebis opes imminutme, paucorum potentia crevit. Hi magistratus, provincias aliaque omnia tenere; ipsi innoxii, florentes, sine metu attatem agere, ceteros judiciis terrere, qui plebem in magistratu placidius tractarent. Sed ubi primuim dubiis rebus novandi spes oblata est, vetus certamen animos eorum arrexit. Quod si primo prcelio Catilina superior aut Mequa.manu discessisset, profecto magna clades atque calamitas rempublicam oppressisset; neque illis, qui victoriam adepti forent, diutius ea uti licuisset, quin defessis et exsanguibus, qui plus posset, imperium atque libertatem extorqueret. Fuere tamen extra conjurationem complures, qui ad Catilinam initio profecti sunt: in his erat A. Fulvius, senatoris filius,

Page  115 CATILINA. 115 quem retractum ex itinere parens necari jussit. Isdem temporibus Romse Lentulus, sicuti Catilina preeceperat, quoscumque moribus aut fortune novis rebus idoneos credebat, aut per se/aut per alios sollicitabat; neque solim cives, sed cujusque modi genus hominurn quod inodo bello usui foret. XL. Igitur P. Umbreno cuidam negotium dat, uti le~ gatos Allobrogum requirat, eosque, si possit, impellat ad societatem belli; existimans publice privatimque sere alieno oppressos, praeterea, quod natura gens Gallica bellicosa esset, facile eos ad tale consilium adduci posse. Umbrenus, quod in Gallia negotiatus erat, plerisque principibus civitatium notus erat, atque eos noverat: itaque sine mora, ubi primium legatos in foro conspexit, percontatus pauca de statu civitatis, et quasi dolens ejus casum, requirere coepit,'quem exitum tantis malis sperarent?' Postquam illos videt queri de avaritia magistratuum, accusare senatum, quod in eo auxilii nihil esset; miseriis suis remedium mortem exspectare: "At ego," inquit, " vobis, si modo viri esse vultis, rationem ostendam, qua tanta ista mala effugiatis." Hac ubi dixit, Allobroges in maximam spem adducti Umbrenum orare, uti sui misereretur:'nihil tam asperum neque tam difficile esse, quod non cupidissime facturi essent, dum ea res civitatem tero alieno liberaret.' Ille eos in domum D. Bruti perducit, quod foro propinqua erat, neque aliena consilii, propter Semproniam; nam turn Brutus ab Roma aberat. Praeterea Gabinium arcessit, quo major auctoritas sermoni inesset. Eo presente, conjurationem aperit; nominat socios, praeterea multos cujusque generis innoxios, quo legatis animus amplior esset: deinde eos pollicitos-operamn suam domum dimittit. 11

Page  116 116 c. CRISPI SALLUSTI! XLI. Sed Allobroges diui in incerto habuere, quidnam consilii caperent. In altera parte erat aes alienum, stu. dium belli, magna merces in spe victorire; at in altera inajores opes, tuta consilia, pro incerta spe certa prawmia. Hec illis volventibus, tandem vicit fortuna reipublica. Itaque Q. Fabio Sangae, cujus patrocinio civitas pluri. mum utebatur, rem omnem, uti cognoverant, aperiunt. Cicero, per Sangam consilio cognito, legatis praecepit, ut studium conjurationis vehementer simulent, ceteros adeant, bene polliceantur, dentque operam, uti eos quam maxime manifestos habeant~ XLII. Isdem fere temporibus in Gallia citeriore atque ulteriore, item in agro Piceno, Bruttio, Apulia rnotus erat. Namque illi, quos antea Catilina dimiserat, inconsulte ac veluti per dementiam cuncta simul agebant: nocturnis consiliis, armorum atque telorumn portationibus, festinando, agitando omnia, plus timoris quam periculi effecerant. Ex eo numero complures Q. Metellus Celer praetor ex senati consultu, causa cognita, in vincula conjecerat; item in ulteriore GalliC C. Murena, qui ei provinciae legatus praeerat. XLIII. At Roma Lentulus cum ceteris, qui principes conjurationis erant, paratis, ut videbantur, magnis copiis, constituerant, uti, quum Catilina in agrum Foesulanurn cum exercitu venisset, L. Bestia tribunus plebis, concione habita, quereretur de actionibus Ciceronis, bellique gravissimi invidiam optimo consuli imponere t; eo signo, proxima nocte cetera multitudo conjurationis suum quisque negotium exsequeretur. Sed ea divisa hoc modo dicebantur, Statilius et. Gabinius uti cum magna manu duodecim simul opportuna loca urbis in.renderent, quo tumultu facilior aditus ad consulem ceterosque, quibus

Page  117 CATILINA. 117 insidiae parabantur, fieret; Cethegus Ciceronis januam obsideret, eumque vi aggrederetur, alius autem alium; sed filii familiarum, quorum ex nobilitate maxima pars erat, parentes interficerent; simul, caede et incendio percullsis omnibus, ad Catilinam erumperent. Inter lihe parata atque decreta Cethegus semper querebatur dejgnavia sociorum:' illos dubitando et dies prolatando magnas opportunitates corrunipere; facto, non consulto in tali periculo opus esse; seque, si pauci adjuvarent, languentibus aliis, impetum in curiam facturum.' Natura ferox, vehemens, manu promptus erat; maximum bonum in celeritate putabat. XLIV. Sed Allobroges ex preecepto Ciceronis per Gabinium ceteros conveniunt; ab Lentulo, Cethego, Statilio, item Cassio postulant jusjurandum, quod signatum ad cives perferant:' aliter haud facile eos ad tantum negotium impelli posse.' Ceteri nihil suspicantes dant; Cassius semet eo brevi ventururn pollicetur, ac paulo ante legatos ex urbe proficiscitur. Lentulus cum his T. Volturcium quemdam Crotoniensem mittit, uti Allobroges, priusquam domum pergerent, cum Catilina, data et accepta fide, societatem confirmarent. Ipse Volturcio litteras ad Catilinam dat, quarum exemplum infra scriptum est. "Quis sim, ex eo, quem ad to misi, cognosces. Fec cogites, in quanta calamitate sis, et.memineris te virum esse; consideres, quid turn rationes postulent: auxilium petas ab omnibus, etiam ab infimis." (Ad hoc mandata verbis dat:'quum ab senatu hostis judicatus sit, quo consilio servitia repudiet? in urbe parata esse, quae jusserit; ne,cunctetur ipse propius cce.dere.'

Page  118 118 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII XLV. His rebus ita actis, constituta nocte, qua proficiscerentur, Cicero, per legatos cuncta edoctus, L. Valerio Flacco et C. Pomptino praetoribus imperat, uti in ponte Mulvio per insidias Allobrogum comitatus deprehendant; rem omnem aperit, cujus gratia mittebaiitur; cetera, uti facto opus sit, ita agant, permittit. Illi, homines militares, sine tumultu praesidiis collocatis, sicuti preceptum erat, occulte pontem obsidunt. Postquamn ad id loci legati cum Volturcio venerunt, et simul utrimque clamor exortus est, Galli, cito cognito consilio, sine mora prmtoribus se tradunt. Volturcius primo, cohortatus ceteros, gladio se a multitudine defendit; deinde, ubi a legatis desertus est, multa priuis de salute sua Pomptinum obtestatus, qubd ei notus erat, postremo timidus ac vitte diffidens, velut hostibus sese prsetoribus dedit. XLVI. Quibus rebus confectis, omnia propere per nuntios consuli declarantur. At illum ingens cura atque laetitia simul occupavdre: nam letabatur, intelligens, conjuratione patefacta, civitatem periculis ereptam esse; porro autem anxius erat, dubitans, in maximo scelere tantis civibus depxehe nis, quid facto opus esset; pdenam illorum sibi oneri, impunitatem perdendme reipublicae fore credebat. Igitur, confirmato animo, vocari ad sese jubet Lentulum, Cethegum, Statilium, Gabinium, itemque Cceparium quemdam Terracinensem, qui in Apuliam ad concitanda servitia proficisci parabat. Ceteri sine mor& veniunt' Cceparius, paulo ante dono egressus, cognito indicio, ex urbe profugerat. Consul Lentulum, quod praetor erat, ipse manu tenens perducit; reliquos cum custodibus in redem Concordia venire jubet. E6 senatum'dvocat, magnaque frequentia ejus ordinis, Volturcium cum legatis introducit; Flaccum pramtorem scrini

Page  119 CATILINA. 119 um cum litteris, quas a legatis acceperat, eodem afferre jubet. XLVII. Volturcius interrogatus de itinere, de litteris, postremo quid, aut qua de causa, consilii habuisset, prim6 fingere alia, dissimulare de conjuratione; post, ubi fide publica dicere jussus est, omnia, uti gesta erant, aperit; docetque'se paucis ante diebus a Gabinio et Ccepario socium adscitum nihil ampliu-s scire quam legatos; tantummodo audire solitum ex; Gabinio P. Autronium, Servium Sullam, L. Vargunteium, multos praeterea in ea conjuratione esse.' Eadem Galli fatentur, ac Lentulum dissimulantem coarguunt proeter litteras sermonibus, qubs ille habere solitus erat:'ex libris Sibyllinis regnum Roma tribus Corneliis pQrtendi; Cinnam atque Sullam antea, se tertium esse, cui fatum foret urbis potiri; pramterea ab incenso Capitolio illum esse vigesimum annum, quem sepe ex prodigiis haruspices respoirdissent bello civili cruentum fore.' Igitur perlectis litteris, quum prius omnes signa sua cognovissent, senatus decernit,' uti abdicato magistratu Lentulus, itemque ceteri in liberis custodiis haberentur.' Itaque Lentulus P. Lentulo Spintheri, qui turn edilis erat, Cethegus Q. Cornificio, Statilius C. Coesari, Gabinius M. Crasso, Cceparius (nam is paulo ante ex fuga retractus erat) Cn. Terentio senatori traduntur. XLVIII. Interea plebes, conjuratione patefacta, qua primo cupida rerum novarum nimis bello favebat, mutata mente, Catilina consilia exsecrari, Ciceronem ad ccelum tollere; veluti ex servitute erepta, gaudium atque laetitiam agitabat. Namque alia belli facinora pradaw magis quam detrimento fore, incendium vero cridele, immoderatum, ac sibi maxime calamitosum putabat; 11

Page  120 120 C. CRISPI SALLUST1I quippe cui omnes copise in usu quotidiano et cultu corporis erant. Post eum diem quidam L. Tarquinius ad senatum adductus erat, quem ad Catilinam proficiscentern ex itinere retractum aiebant. Is quum se diceret indicaturum de conjuratione, si fides publica data esset, jussus a consule, qute sciret, edicere, eadem fere, quae Volturcius, de paratis incendiis, de caede bonorum, de itinere hostium senatum docet: preterea'se missum a M. Crasso, qui Catilinm nuntiaret, ne eum Lentulus et Cethegus aliique ex conjuratione deprehensi terrerent; eoque magis properaret ad urbem accedere, quo et ceterorum animos reficeret, et illi facilius e periculo eriperentur.' Sed ubi Tarquinius Crassum nominavit, hominem nobilem, maximis divitiis, summa potentia, alii rem incredibilem rati, pars, tametsi verum existimabant, tamen quia in tali tempore tanta vis hominis lenienda magis quam exagitanda videbatur, plerique Crasso ex negotiis privatis obnoxii conclamant' indicem falsum esse,' deque ea re postulant, uti referatur. Itaque, consulente Cicerone, frequens senatus decernit,'Tarquinii indicium falsum videri, eumque in vinculis retinendum, neque amplius potestatem faciendam, nisi de eo indicaret, cujus consilio tantam rem mentitus esset.' Erant eo tempore, qui existimarent indicium illud a P. Autronio machinatum, quo facilius, appellato Crasso, per societatem periculi reliquos illius potentia tegeret. Alii Tarquinium a Cicerone immissum aiebant, ne Crassus, more suo suscepto malorum patrocinio, rempublicam conturbaret. Ipsum Crassum ego postea praedicantem audivi,' tantam illam conturneliam sibi ab Cicerone impositam.' XLIX. Sed isdem temporibus Q. Catulus et C. Piso neque precibus, neque gratia, neque pretio Ciceroncm

Page  121 CATILINA. 121 impellere potuere, uti per Allobroges aut per alium indicem C. Cesar falso nominaretur. Nam uterque cum illo graves inimicitias exercebant; Piso oppugnatus in judicio pecuniarum repetundarum, propter cujusdaln Transpadani supplicium injustum; Catulus ex petitione pontificatus odio incensus, quod extremr aetate, maximis honoribus usus, ab adolescentulo Caesare victus discesserat. Res autem opportuna videbatur, quod is privatim egregia liberalitate, publice maximis muneribus grandem pecuniam debebat. Sed ubi consulem ad tantum facinus impellere nequeunt, ipsi singulatim circumeundo, atque ementiendo, quae se ex Volturcio aut Allobrogibus audisse dicerent, magnam illi invidiam conflaverant; usque adeo, ut nonnulli equites Romani, qui prtesidii causa cum telis erant circum sedem Concordiae, seu periculi magnitudine, seu animi mobilitate impulsi, quo studium suum in rempublicam clarius esset, egredienti ex senatu Caesari gladio minitarentur. L. Dum hsec in senatu aguntur, et dum legatis Allobrogum et Tito Volturcio, comprobato eorum indicio, proemia decernuntur; liberti et pauci ex clientibus Lentuli diversis itineribus opifices atque servitia in vicis ad eum eripiendum sollicitabant; partfi exquireharit duces multitudinum, qui pretio rempublicam vexare soliti erant. Cethegus autem per nuntios familiam atque libertos suos, Jectos et exercitatos in audaciam, orabat, ut, grege facto, cum telis ad sese irruapereat. Consul, ubi ea parlari cognovit, dispositis prmsidiis, ut res atque tempus monebat, convocato senatu, refert,'quid de his fieri placeat, qui in custodiam traditi erant.' -Sed eos paulo ante frequens senatus judicaverat'contra rempublicam fecisse.' Tum D Junius Silanus, primus sententiam rogatus, quod

Page  122 122 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII eo tempore consul designatus erat, de his, qui in custodiis tenebantur, praterea de L. Cassio, P. Furio, P. Umbreno, Q. Annio, si deprehensi forent, supplicium sumendure decreverat: isque postea, permotus oratione C. Caesaris, pedibus in sententiam Tib. Neronis iturum se dixerat; quod de ea re, praesidiis additis, referendum censucrat. Sed Caesar, ubi ad eum ventum est, rogatus sententiam a consule, hujuscemodi verba locutus est. LI. "Omnes homines, patres conscripti, qui de rebus dubiis consultant, ab odio, amicitia, ira atque misericordia vacuos esse decet. Haud facile animus verum providet, ubi illa officiunt, neque quisquam omnium libidini simul et usui paruit. Ubi intenderis ingenium, valet; si libido possidet, ea daminatur, animus nihil valet. Magna mihi copia est memorandi, patres conscripti, qui reges atque populi, ira aut misericordia impulsi, male consuluerint; sed ea malo dicere, quae majores nostricontralibidinem animi sui recte atquo ordine fecere. Bello Macedonico, quod cum rege Perse gessimus, Rhodiorum civitas, magna atque magnifica, quw populi Romani opibus creverat, infida atque adversa nobis fuit: sed postquam, bello confecto, de Rhodiis consultum est, majores nostri, ne quis divitiarum magis, quam injuria causa bellum inceptum diceret, impunitos eos dimisere. Item bellis Punicis omnibus, quum saepe Carthaginienses et in pace et per inducias multa nefaria facinora fecissent, nunquam ipsi per occasionem talia fecere: magis, quid se dignum foret, quam quid in illis jure fieri posset, quaerebantlIoc idem vobis providendum est, patres conscripti, ne plus valeat apud vos P.

Page  123 CATILINA. 123 tur, novum consilium approbo; sin magnitudo sceleris omnium ingenia exsuperat, his utendum censeo, qul legibus comparata sunt. Plerique eorum, qui ante me sententias dixerunt, composite atque magnifice casum reipublica miserati sunt: qume belli smevitia esset, qum victis acciderent enumeravere: rapi virgines, pueros; divelli liberos a parentum complexu; matres familiarum pati, quam victoribus collibuissent; fana atque domos exspoliari; cmdem, incendia fieri; postremo armis, cadaveribus, cruore atque luctu omnia compleri. Sed, per deos immortales! quo illa oratio pertinuit? an, uti vos infestos conjurationi faceret? Scilicet, quem res tanta atque tam atrox non permovit, eum oratio accendet! Non ita est; neque cuiquam mortalium injuriae sum parvm videntur: multi eas gravius equo habuere. Sed alia aliis licentia est, patres conscripti. Qui demissi in obscuro vitam habent, si quid iracundia deliquere, pauci sciunt; fama atque fortuna eorum pares sunt: qui magno imperio prmediti in excelso aetatem agunt, eorum facta cuncti mortales novere. Ita in maxima fortuna minima licentia est: neque studere, neque odisse, sed minime irasci decet: qume apud alios iracundia dicitur, ea in imperio superbia atque crudelitas appellatur. Equidem ego sic existimo, patres conscripti, omnes cruciatus minores, quam facinora illorum esse; sed plerique mortales postrema meminere, et in hominibus impiis sceleris eorum obliti de piena disserunt, si ea paulo severior fuit. D. Silanum, virum fortem atque strenuum, certo scio, qum dixerit, studio reipublice dixisse, neque illum in tanta re gratiam aut inimicitias exercere: eos mores, eam modestiam viri cognovi. Verum sententia ejus mihi non crudelis, (quid enim in tales homines crudele fieri

Page  124 l24 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII potest?) sed aliena a republica nostra videtur. Nam pro. fect t aut metus aut injuria te subegit, Silane, consulem designatum, genus pcenae novum decernere. De timore supervacaneum est disserere, quum praesertim diligentia clarissimi viri, consulis, tanta prsesidia sint in armis. De pcena possumus equidem dicere, id quod res habet, in luctu atque miseriis mortem aerumnarum requiem, non cruciatum esse, eam cuncta mortalium mala dissolvere; ultra neque curae neque gaudio locum esse. Sed, per deos immortales! quarmobrem in sententiam non addidisti, uti prius verberibus in eos animadverteretur? An, quia lex Porcia velat? At aliae leges item condemnatis civibus non animam eripi, sed exsilium permitti jubent. An, quia gravius est veyrberari quam necari? Quid autem acerbum aut nimis grave in homines tanti facinoris convictos? Sin, quia levius est; qui convenit in minore negotio legem timere, quum ear in majore neglexeris? At enim quis reprehendet, quod in parricidas reipublice decretum erit? Tempus, dies, fortuna, cujus libido gentibus moderatur. Illis merito accidet, quidquid evenerit; ceter.im vos, patres conscripti, quid in alios sttuatais, considerate. Omnia mala exempla ex bonis orta sunt; sed ubi imperium ad ignaros aut minus bonos pertent, novum illud exemplum ab dignis et idoneis ad indignos et non idoneos transfertur. Lacedsemonii devictis Atheniensibus triginta viros imposuere, qui rempublicam corum tractarent. Hi primo ccepere pessimum quemque et omnibus invisum indemnatum necare: ea populus Ietari et merito dicere fieri. Post, ubi paulatim licentia crevit, juxta bonos et malos libidinos. interficere, ceteros mnetu terrere. Ita civitas servitute oppressa stulte lhetitiae graves pcenas dedit. Nostra memoria, victor Sulla

Page  125 CATILINA. 125 quum Damasippum et alios hujusmodi, qui malo reipublicae creverant, jugulari jussit, quis non factum ejus laudabat?'Homines scelestos et factiosos, qui seditionibus rempublicam exagitaverant, merito necatos' aiebant. Sed ea res magna initium cladis fuit: nam uti quisque domum aut villan, postremo aut vas aut vestimenturn alicujus concupiverat, dabat operam, uti is in proscriptorum numero esset. Ita illi, quibus Damasippi mors laetitiae fuerat, paulo post ipsi trahebantur; neque pri'is finis jugulandi fuit, quim Sulla omnes suos divitiis explevit. Atque ego huec non in M. Tullio neque his temporibus vereor; sed in magna civitate multa et varia ingenia sunt. Potest alio tempore, alio consule, cui item exercitus in manu sit, falsum aliquid pro vero credi. Ubi hoc exemplo per senati decretum consul gladium eduxerit, quis illi finem statuet, aut quis moderabitur? Majores nostri, patres conscripti, neque consilii neque audaciae unquam eguere; neque illis superbia obstabat, quo minis aliena instituta, si modo proba erant, imitarentur. Arma atque tela militaria ab Samnitibus, insignia magistratuum ab Tuscis pleraque sumpserunt: postremo quod ubique apud socios aut hostes idoneum videbatur, cum summo studio domi exsequebantur; imitari quam invidere bonis malebant. Sedeodem illo tempore, Grzeciae morem imitati, verberibus animadvertebant in cives, de condemnatis summum supplicium sumebant. Postquam respublica adolevit, et multitudine civium factiones valuere, circumveniri innocentes, alia hujuscemodi fieri ccepere, tum lex Porcia aliaque leges paratae sunt, quibus legibus exsilium damnatis permissum est. Hanc ego causam, patres conscripti, quo minus novum consilium capiamus, in primis magnam puto. Profecto virtus atque

Page  126 126 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII sapientia major in illis fuit, qui ex parvis opibus tantuin irmperium fecere, quam in nobis, qui ea bene parta vix retinemus. Placet igitur eos dimitti et augere exercituLn Catilin'e? Minime; sed ita censeo:'publicandas eo. rum pecunias, ipsos in vinculis habendos per municipia, quae maxime opibus valent; neu quis de his postea ad senatum referat, neve cum populo agat: qui aliter fecerit, senatum existimare eum contra rempublicam et salutem omnium facturum.'" LII. Postquam Caesar dicendi finem fecit, ceteri verbo alius alii varie assentiebantur: at M. Porcius Cato, rogatus sententiam, hujuscemodi orationem habuit. "Longe mihi alia mens est, patres conscripti, quum res atque pericula nostra considero, et quum sententias nonnullorum mecum ipse reputo. Illi mihi disseruisse videntur de pcena eorum, qui patrie, parentibus, aris atque fQcia suis bellum paravere: res autem monet cavere ab illis magis quam, quid in illis statuamus, consultare. Nam cetera maleficia tum persequare, ubi facta sunt: hoc, nisi provideris, ne accidat, ubi evenit, frustra judicia implores: capta urbe, nihil fit reliqui victis. Sed, per deos immortales! vos ego appello, qui semper domos, villas, signa, tabulas vestras pluris quam rempublicam fecistis, si ista, cujuscumque modi sunt quse amplexamini, retinere, si voluptatibus vestris otium prebere vultis, expergiscimini aliquando, et capessite rempublicam. Non agitur de vectigalibus, neque de sociorum inijuriis; libertas et anima nostra in dubio est. Saepenu1nero, patres conscripti, multa verba in hoc ordine feci, stepe de luxuria atque avaritia nostrorum civium questus sum, multosque mortales ea causa adversos habeo. Qui mihi atque animo meb nullius unquam de

Page  127 CATILINA. 127 licti gratiam fecissem, haud facile alterius libidini malefacta condonabam. Sed ea tametsi vos parvi pendebatis, tamen respublica firma erat; opulentia negligentiam tolerabat. Nunc vero non id agitur, bonisne an malis moribus vivamus, neque quantum aut quarn magnificum imperium populi Romani sit; sed cujus hae cumque modi videntur, nostra, an nobiscum una hostium futura sint. "Hic mihi quisquam mansuetudinem et misericordiam nominat. Jampridemn equidem nos vera rerum vocabula amisimus, quia bona aliena largiri liberalitas, malarum rerum audacia fortitudo vocatur; eo respublica in extremo sita est. Sint sane, quoniam ita se mores habent, liberales ex sociorum fortunis, sint misericordes in furibus eerarii: ne illi sanguinem nostrum largiantur; et dum paucis sceleratis parcunt, bonos omnes perditum eant. Bene et composite C. Cesar paulo ante in hoc ordine de vita et morte disseruit; credo, falsa existimans ea, quae de inferis memorantur;' diverso itinere malos a bonis loca tetra, inculta, fceda atque formidolosa habere.' Itaque censuit'pecunias eorum publicandas, ipsos per municipia in custodiis habendos;' videlicet timens, ne, si Romse sint, aut a popularibus conjurationis, aut a multitudine conducta per vim eripiantur. Quasi vero mali atque scelesti tantummodo in urbe, et non per totam Italiam sint, aut non ibi plus possit audacia, ubi ad defendendum opes minores sunt. Quare vanum equidem hoc consilium est, si periculum ex illis metuit;.sin in tanto omnium metu solus non timet, eo magis refert me mihi atque vobis timere. "Quare quum de P. Lentulo ceterisque statuetis, pro certo habetote vos simul de exercitu Catilinse et de om12

Page  128 128 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII nibus conjuratis deeernere. Quanto vos attentiius ea agetis, tanto illis animus infirmior erit: si paululum modo vos languere viderint, jam omnes feroces aderunt. Nolite existimare majores nostros armis rempublicar ex parva magnam fecisse. Si ita res esset, multo pulcherrimam ear nos haberemus: quippe sociorum atque civium, preterea armorum atque equorum major nobis copia quam illis. Sed alia fuere, quse illos magnos fecere, quae nobis nulla sunt; domi industria, foris justurn imperium, animus in consulendo liber, neque delicto neque libidini obnoxius. Pro his nos habemus luxuriam atque avaritiam, publice egestatem, privatim opulentiam; laudTrnus divitias, sequimur inertiam; inter bonos et malos discrimen nullum; omnia virtutis prsemia ambitio possidet. Neque mirum, ubi vos separatim sibi quisque consilium capitis, ubi domi voluptatibus, hic pecuniae aut gratiae servitis; eo fit, ut impetus fiat in vacuam rempublicam. Sed ego hasc omitto.:"Conjuravere nobilissimi cives patriam -incendere, Gallorum gentem infestissimam nomini Romano ad bellum arcessunt; dux hostium cum exercitu supra caput est: vos cunctamini etiam nune, quid intra mcenia deprehensis hostibus faciatis? Misereamini, censeo, (deliquere homines adolescentuli per ambitionem,) atque etiam armatos dimittatis. Ne ista vobis mansuetudo et misericordia, si illi arma ceperint, in miseriam vertet. Scilicet res ipsa aspera est, sed vos non timetis eam. Immo vero maxima; sed inertia et mollitia animi alius alium exspectantes cunctamini, videlicet dis immortalibus confisi, qui hanc rempublicam in maximis saepe periculis servavere. Non votis neque suppliciis muliebribus auxilia deorum parantur; vigilando, agendo, bene con

Page  129 CATILINA. 129 sulendo prospera omnia cedunt: ubi socordiee te atque ignavime tradideris, nquidquam deos implores; rati. infestique sunt. Apud majores nostros T. Manlius Torquatus bello Gallico filium suum, quod is contra imperium in hostem pugnaverat, necari jussit, atque ille egregius adolescens, immoderatse fortitudinis, morte pcenas dedit: vos de crudelissimis parricidis quid statuatis, cunctamini? Videlicet vita cetera eorum huic sceleri obstat. Verum parcite dignitati Lentuli, si ipse pudicitiae, si famca suae, si dis aut hominibus unquam ullis pepercit: ignoscite Cethegi adolescentie, nisi iterum patrim bellum fecit. Nam quid ego de Gabinio, Statilio, Ccepario loquar? quibus si quidquam unquam pensi fuisset, non ea consilia de republica habuissent. "Postremo, patres conscripti, si mehercule peccato locus esset, facile paterer vos ipsa re corrigi, quoniam verba comtemnitis; sed undique circumventi sumus. Catilina cum exercitu faucibus urget; alii intra mlcenia atque in sinu urbis sunt hostes; neque parari, neque consuli quidquam occulte potest: qu' magis properandum est. Quare ita ego censeo:'quum nefario consilio sceleratorum civium respublica in maxima pericula venerit, hique indicio T. Volturcii et legatorum Allobrogum convicti confessique sint caedem, incendia, aliaque se fceda atque crudelia facinora in cives patriamque paravisse, de confessis, sicuti de manifestis rerum capitalium, more majorum supplicium sumendum.'" IIII. Postquam Cato assedit, consulares omnes itemque senatus magna pars sententiam ejus laudant, virtutem animi ad ccelum ferunt, alii alios increpantes timidos vocant; Cato clarus atque magnus habetur; senati deeretum fit, sicuti ille censuerat. Sed mihi multa le

CRISPI SALLUSTI1 genti, multa audienti, quae populus Romanus domi mi. litikeque, mari atque terra prmeclara facinora fecit- forte libuit attendere, qums res maxime tanta negotia sustinuisset. Sciebam sapenumero parva manu cum magnis legionibus hostium contendisse; cognoveram parvis copiis bella gesta cum opulentis regibus; ad hoc saepe fortunae violentiam toleravisse; facundia Graecos, gloria belli Gallos ante Romanos fuisse. Ac mihi multa agitanti constabat, paucorum civium egregiam virtutem cuncta patravisse; eoque factum, uti divitias paupertas, multitudinem paucitas superaret. Sed postquam luxu atque desidia civitas corrupta est, rursus respublica magnitudine sua imperatorum atque magistratuum viia sustentabat, ac, sicuti effeta parente, multis tempestatibus haud sane quisquam Romam virtute magnus fuit. Sed memoria. mea, ingenti virtute, diversis moribus fuere viri duo, M. Cato et C. Caesar: quos quoniam res obtulerat, silentio prmeterire non fuit consilium, quin utriusque naturam et mores, quantum ingenio possem, aperirem. LIV. Igitur his genus, mtas. eloquentia prope aequalia fuere; magnitudo animi par, item gloria, sed alia alii. Caesar beneficiis atque munificentia magnus habebatur; integritate vitae Cato. Ille mansuetudine et misericordia clarus factus; huic severitas dignitatem addiderat. Camsar dando, sublevando, ignoscendo; Cato nihil largiendo gloriam adeptus est. In altero miseris perfugium; in altero malis pernicies: illius facilitas, hujus constantia laudabatur. Postremo Caesar in animum induxerat laborare, vigilare; negotiis amicorum intentus, sua negligere; nihil denegare, quod dono dignum esset; sibi magnum imperium, exercitum, novum bellum exoptabat, ubi virtus enitescere posset. At Catoni studium

Page  131 CATILINA. 131 modestia, decoris, sed maxime severitatis erat. Non divitiis cum divite, neque factione cum factioso, sed curm strenuo virtute, cum modesto pudore, cum innocente abstinentia certabat; esse quam videri bonus malebat: ita, quo minus gloriam petebat, eo magis sequebatur. LV. Postquam, ut dixi, senatus in Catonis sententiam discessit, consul optimum factum ratus noctem, quae instabat, antecapere, ne quid eo spatio novaretur, triumviros, quae supplicium postulabat, parare jubet: ipse, dispositis proesidiis, Lentulum in carcerem deducit; idem fit ceteris per prsetores. Est locus in carcere, quod Tullianum appellatur, ubi paululum descenderis ad levam, circiter duodecim pedes humi depressus. Eum muniunt undique parietes, atque insuper camera lapideis fornicibus vincta, sed incultu, tenebris, odore fceda atque terribilis ejus facies est. In eum locum postquam demissus est Lentulus, vindices rerum capitalium, quibus praeceptum erat, laqueo gulam frege,. Ira ille patricius, ex clarissima gente Corneliorum, qui consulare imperium Romae habuerat, dignum moribus factisque suis exitium vitce invenit. De Cethego, Statilio, Gabinio, Ccepario eodem modo supplicium sumptum est. LVI. Dum ea Romm geruntur, Catilina ex omni copi;i, quam et ipse adduxerat, et Manlius habuerat, duas legiones instituit; cohortes pro numero militum complet: deinde, ut quisque voluntarius aut ex sociis in castra venerat, oequaliter distribuerat, ac brevi spatio legiones numero hominum expleverat, quum initio non amplius duobus millibus habuisset. Sed ex omni copia circiter pars quarta erat militaribus armis instructa; ccteri, ut quemque casus armaverat, sparos aut lanceas, alii praeacutas sudes portabant. Sed postquam Antonius cum 12 *

Page  132 132 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII exercitu adventabat, Catilina per montes iter facere, modo ad urbem, modo in Galliam versuis castra movere. hostibus occasionem pugnandi non dare: sperabat propediem magnas copias sese habiturum, si Roma socii incepta patravissent. Interea servitia repudiabat, cujus initio ad eum magna~ copi& concurrebant, opibus conjurationis fretus, simul alienum suis rationibus existimans, videri causam civium cum servis fugitivis communicavisse. LVII. Sed postquam in castra nuntius pervenit Romm conjurationem patefactam, de Lentulo, Cethego, ceteris, quos supra memoravi, supplicium sumptum; plerique, quos ad bellum spes rapinarum aut novarum rerum studium illexerat, dilabuntur: reliquos Catilina per montes asperos magnis itineribus in agrum Pistoriensem abducit, eo consilio, uti per tramites occulte perfug ret in Galliam. At Q. Metellus Celer cum tribus legionibus in agro Piceno presidebat, ex difficultate rerum eadem illa existimans, quav supra diximus, Catilinam agitare. Igitur, ubi iter ejus ex perfugis cognovit, castra propere movit, ac sub ipsis radicibus montium consedit, qua illi descensus erat in Galliam properanti. Neque tamen Antonius procul aberat, utpote qui magno exercitu locis oequioribus expeditus in fuga sequeretur. Sed Catilina, postquam videt montibus atque copiis hostium sese clausum, in urbe res adversas, neque fuga neque praesidii ullam spem, optimum factum ratus in tali re fortunam belli tentare, statuit cum Antonio quam primtum confligere. Itaque, concione advocata, hujuseemodi orationem habuit. LV~1I. " Compertum ego habeo, milites, verba virtutem non addere; neque ex ignayv strenuum, neque

Page  133 CA-TILINA. 133 fortem ex timido exercitum oratione imperatoris fieri. Quanta cujusque animo audacia natura aut moribus inest, tanta in bello patere solet: quem neque gloria neque pericula excitant, nequidquam hortere; timor animi auribus officit. Sed ego vos, quo pauca monerem, advocavi; simul uti causam mei consilii aperirem. Scitis equidern, milites, socordia atque ignavia Lentuli quantam ipsi cladem nobisque attulerit; quoque modo, dum ex urbe praesidia opperior, in Galliam proficisci nequiverim. Nunc vero quo in loco res nostrae sint, j!lxta mecur omnes intelligitis. Exercitus hostium duo, unus ab urbe, alter a Gallia obstant: diutius in his locis esse, si maxime animus ferat, frumenti atque aliarum rerum egestas prohibet. Quocumque ire placet, ferro iter aperiendum est. Quapropter vos moneo, uti forti atque parato animo sitis, et, quum prcelium inibitis, memineritis vos divitias, decus, gloriam, praeterea libertatem atque patriam in dextris vestris portaie. Si vincimus, omnia nobis tuta erunt, commeatus abunde, colonise atque municipia patebunt: sin metu cesserimus, eadem illa adversa fient: neque locus neque amicus quisquam teget, quem arma non texerint. Priterea, milites, non eadem nobis et illis necessitudo impendet: nos pro patria, pro libertate, pro vita certamus: illis supervacaneum est pugnare pro potentia paucorum. Quo audacius aggredimini, memores pristina virtutis. Licuit vobis cum sunmma turpitudine in exsilio vatatem agere; potuistis nonnullj Rome, arissis bonis, alienas opes exspectare. Quia illa fceda atque intoleranda viris videbantur, haec sequi decrevistis. Si haec relinquere vultis, audacia opus est: nemo, nisi victor, pace bellum mutavit. Nam in lfug't salutem sperare, quum arma, quis corpus tegitur,

Page  134 134 C. CRISPI SALLUSTII ab hostibus averteris, ea vero dementia est. Semper in prcelio iis maximum est periculum, qui maxime timent; audacia pro muro habetur. Quum vos considero, milites, et quum facta vestra vestimo, magna me spes victoria tenet. Animus, mtas, virtus vestra me hortantur, praeferea necessitudo, quwe etiam timidos fortes facit. Nam multitudo hostiumn ne circumvenire queat, prohibent angustie loci. Quod si virtuti vestre fortuna inviderit, cavete inulti animam amittatis; neu capti potius sicuti pecora trucidemini, quam virorum more pugnantes, cruentam atque luctuosam victoriam hostibus relinquatis." LIX. Hec ubi dixit, paululum commoratus, signa canere jubet, atque instructos ordines in locum aequum deducit: deinde, remotis omnium equis, quo militibus, exwequato periculo, animus amplior esset, ipse pedes exercitum pro loco atque copiis instruit. Nam, uti planities erat inter sinistros -iontes, et ab dextra rupes aspera, octo cohortes in fronte constituit, reliqua signa in subsidio artius collocat. Ab his centuriones omnes lectos et evocatos, prseterea ex gregariis militibus optimum quemque armatum in primam aciem subducit. C. Manlium in dextera, Feesulanum quemdam in sinistra parte curare jubet: ipse curn libertis et colonis propter aquilam assistit, quam bello Cimbrico C. Marius in exercitu habuisse dicebatur. At ex altera parte C. Antonius, pedibus aeger, quod prelio adesse nequibat, M. Petreio legato exercitum permittit. Ille cohortes veteranas, quas tunulti causa conscripserat, in fronte; post eas ceterum exercitum in subsidiis locat. Ipse equo circumiens, unumquemque nominans appellat, hortatur, rogat, uti meminerint se contra latrones inermes, pro patria, pro

Page  135 CATILINA. 135 liberis, pro aris atque focis suis cernere. Homo miiitaris, quod amplius annos triginta tribunus, aut prafectus, aut legatus, aut praetor cum magna gloria in exercitu fuerat, plerosque ipsos factaque eorum fortia noverat; ea commemorando militum animos accendebat. LX. Sed ubi, omnibus rebus exploratis, Petreius tuba signum dat, cohortes paulatim incedere jubet; idem facit hostium exercitus. Postquam eo vehtum est, unde a ferentariis prcelium committi posset, maximo clamore cum infestis signis concurrunt; pila omittunt; gladiis res geritur. Veterani, pristinse virtutis memores, cominus acriter instare; illi haud timidi resistunt; maxima vi certatur. Interea Catilina cum expeditis in prima acie versari, laborantibus succurrere, integros pro sauciis arcessere, omnia providere, multum ipse pugnare, sape hostem ferire: strenui militis et boni imperatoris officia simul exsequebatur. Petreius ubi videt Catilinam, contra ac ratus erat, magna vi tendere, cohortem praetoriam in medios hostes inducit, eosque perturbatos atque alios alibi resistentes interficit; deinde utrimque ex laternbus ceteros aggreditur. Manlius et Fmesulanus in primis pugnantes cadunt. Postquam fusas copias, seque cum paucis relictum videt Catilina, memor generis atque pristinae dignitatis, in confertissimos hostes incurrit, ibique pugnans confoditur. LXI. Sed confecto prcelio, tum vero cerneres, quanta audacia quantaque vis animi fuisset in exercitu Catilinne Nam fere quem quisque vivus pugnando locum ceperat, eum, amissa anima, corpore tegebat. Paucl autem, quos medios cohors pratoria disjecerat, paulo diversiuis, sed omnes tamen adversis vulneribus conciderant. Catilina vero longe a suis inter hostium cadavera repertus est

Postremo ex omni copia neque in prcelio neque in fuga quisquam civis ingenuus captus est: ita cuncti suse hostiumque vita juxta pepercerant. Neque tamen exercitus populi Romani latarn aut incruentam victoriam adeptus erat; nam strenuissimus quisque aut occiderat in prcelio, aut graviter vulneratus discesserat.' Multi autem, qui de castris visendi aut spoliandi gratia processerant, volventes hostilia cadavera, amicum alii, pars hospitem aut cognatum reperiebant; fuere item, qui inimicos suos cognoscerent. Ita varie per omnem exercitum laetitia, moeror, luctus atque gaudia agitabantur.

Page  285 NOTES ON THE JUGURTHINE WAR. I. Falso queritur. The four introductory sections of each of the treatises of Sallust have no direct connection with the histories to which they are prefixed, and, with only slight alterations, might have served equally well as prefaces to any other works. In both, the train of thought is nearly the same, and they each contain a defence of the author for choosing to devote his talents to literary employments, rather than to a participation in public affairs.

Vim relates to imbecilla in the preceding sentence, anct tempus, to cevi brevis. So below, vires and tempus. Invenies is here construed first with the accusative, and then with the infinitive and accusative. Instances of double constructions are common in Sallust. Sed dux. This sentence contains a reply to the complaint mentioned in the first sentence, and sed, serving to introduce a different view of the nature of man, is strictly adversative. Eripere cuiquam potest, sc. fortuna. Sin, captus, sc. mortalis animus, i. e. homo or quisquam. In its adversative character sin serves to introduce a clause which is opposed to ubi ad gloriam virtutis vi& grassatur. Perniciosa libidinepaulisper usus,-naturce infirmitas accusatur.

The remainder of this chapter is occupied with the author's reasons for declining to take part in public affairs; first, that offices were not bestowed upon the deserving; and 285

Page  286 286 NOTES ON THE secondly, that those engaged in the contest for office, and who are divided into three classes, were neither happier nor more respectable on account of their success. Bli quibus per fraudem is (sc. honos) fuit, —" who have acquired office by deceptive arts;" these constitute the first class. Vi quidem regere. The second class is described as obtaining power by force. Parentes, from pareo, " subjects," though some interpret it "parents." Possis, sc. regere patriam, &c.

"To exeZute is in point of time subsequen. to being elected (to an office,) but really and practically it is antecedent." The expression is rendered designedly paradoxical by the use of gerere without an accusative expressed. In the first clause, gerere. quam fieri tempore posterius (est) magistratum or the like is to be supplied; and the clause imports that the discharge of the duties of an office is subsequent to one's election to such office; but in the second clause, gerere quam fieri re atque usu prius est, rem or the like is to be supplied with gerere, and the. meaning is, that one must be practised in affairs before he is qualified for election to an office, or, in other words, that experience is a necessary qualification for office. Comparate nunc cum illorulm superbia me ho/minem novum. The Latin idiom often permits a comparison to be made, not only between two persons, or the properties or actions of two persons, but between a person and an attribute or action of another person; " me and the pride of these men," instead of, 1" me and these proud men."

So Maurus for Bocchus, king of the Moors: Chaps. XCVII, CVIII and CXIII. Ad pedites.

This infinitive depends on scilicet, i. e. scire icet. Per illam licet, "it is allowed so far as depends on her." See Per in Dit. Nam refers to something to be supplied, as, I do not say that they are never vanquished in war, for, &c. bocchus placide et benigne, sc. respondit. Unde vi Jugurtham expulerit, O 266, 3. This claim on the part of Bocchus to that portion of Numidia, which was the seat of the war was probably destitute of any valid foundation. MIissis antea legatis. See Chap. LXXX. Omittere-missurum (esse). These infinitives, together with those in the preceding sentences, refer to verba facit. Dein copiafacta, i. e. of sending ambassadors. CIII. Quce sibi-venerant. In this, and in some similar passages, two constructions are blended. The writer in presenting his own thoughts would have said, Quc ei-venerant; in presenting those of Bocchus he would have said, Quc sibi-venissent. He has retained the reflexive pronoun with the indicative mood. Si placeat, sc. Mario. Non pro vaiis hostibus —7abuit. In this clause habuit signifies " to reckon or consider," in the next clause accurate ac liberaliter habuit, it is made by Zeugma to signify " to treat," Ut meriti erant. " As they were fit to be treated," i. e. considering their appearance, sine decore. Nisi pariter volens, sc. putabatur, " but he was thought equally benevolent.' Quce aut utilia, aut benevolentice (esse) credebant, O 227, R. 2, & 3. " Which they thought useful or fitted to gain good will." Sulla omna pollicito, $ 257, R. 6. CIV.

CV Cujus arbitratu, t 249, II. Cum velitaribus armis. It is implied that such were not the customary arms of the Peligni. Quod ea, sc tela hostium. Quinto denique die.

Page  313 JUGURTHINE \' AR. 313 Numerum ampliorem vero, et hostilem metum efficiebant. In the first clause efficicebant is to be translated, " rendered or caused to appear," in the second, "caused or occasioned." Timor aliquantus, sc. illisfuit.-Adversum eos, since opposed to those. Uti erat. The use of the indicative in Latin to denote that which actually exists, renders the addition of such words as re vera, "in fact, in reality," &c. unnecessary. CVI. Volux adveniens. The present participle here as elsewhere denotes an unfinished action, "on coming up." A patre Boccho. As Sylla was unacquainted with Volux, the latter, in introducing himself as the son of Bocchus, very properly places the appellative patre before the proper name Boccho, for the purpose of pointing out his connexion with him. Obviam illis simul, et presidio missum. Obviam and prcesidio have each the same relation to missum, and may therefore be connected by et, ~ 278. illis, for vobis in oratio directa. See ile in Diet. Post, " afterwards," i. e. post proximum diem. Satis credere. Credere depends on negat, which after a negative is often construed with an affirmative clause, "declares that he does not fear," &c. "that he has full confidence in the valor of his soldiers," &c. Mansurum potius, quam-parceret. The regular construction would be, quam parsurum. When in such cases the subjunctive follows, there appears to be an ellipsis as here, quam (id commissurum ut) parceret. Quos ducebat. This verb, considered as the language of Sylla in the oratio obliqua, should be in the subjunctive,' 266, 3: but here, as in many other examples, the writer puts himself in'the place of him whose language he is quoting, and believing the truth of what is alleged adopts the language as his own. Ceterum ab eodem, sc. Voluce. Ceenatos essejubet. Jubeo like volo often takes the infinitive of the perfect passive to denote an eager desire that something should be instantly accomplished.

Integra, "unchanged," i. e. unaffected by the influence of Jugurtha or other causes. Neu pertimesceret. See note above on deligeret. Quo res communis licentius gereretur. The true reading is here doubtful Some suppose that admissum or accitum is to be supplied, and that quo denotes the purpose for which he had been invited by Bocchus, viz. lest Jugurtha should suspect the purpose of the conference, if conducted without the presence of an agent sent by him. For quo Gronovius proposes to read quin. Kritz suggests the supplying of remoto after quo. The passage will then signify, that the presence of this agent of Jugurtha at the public audience of Sylla would allay his suspicions, and that afterwards their affairs might be discussed more freely in his absence, and without his knowledge.

Id imminutum, "that this (ability) is impaired," ~ 206, (13.) Fuerit mihi, "let it be my fortune," ~ 260, R. 6, 2d clause. Aliquando, "at last," i. e. after so long a period of prosperity and independence. Sume, utere. As these verbs govern one the accusative and the other the ablative, a pronoun as iis must be supp ied with the latter.

Ad simulandam pacem, i. e. with Jugurtha CXII. Conditionibus, "upon conditions (previously stipulated;") in distinction from an unconditional surrender. Regis sui; i. e. Jugurthae. Frustrafuisse. These words constitute the whole predicate. Jugurtha alludes to such treaties as that made with Aulus, which was disannulled by the senate. Chap. XXXIX. Consultum et ratam (esse) pacem vellet. Volo often occurs with the perfect infinitive. See Chap. CVI, Ccanatos essejubet, and note.

The construction of the former clause would seem to require that this which is connected with it, should have been et homo nobilis-non relinqueretur. The author, however, has resolved the first infinitive future, (Jactum iri,) into fore with the imperfect subjunctive, and left the other unresolved. Non sua ignavia sed ob rempublicam in hostium potestate. This is equivalent to the relative clause, Qui non sua ignavia sed ob rempublicam in hostium potestate esset. The remaining words, neque hominem nobilem relictum iri, require, in order to constitute a complete proposition, the repetition of the words, in hostium potestate. CXIII. Secum ipse,. 207, R. 28.

Sylla thought so highly of this service done by him to the state, as to cause it to be represented on his seal; thereby occasioning great offence to Marius. CXIV. Per idem tempus.

Sed marks a distinction about to be made between our powers, (nostra vis), and those of other animals, which are naturally incapable of any thoughts or efforts but such as have relation to the body. Omnis vis, "whole powers, entire nature." A part of our natural powers, viz. the corporeal, are the same as those of the other animals, but our whole nature includes the mental as well as the corporeal powers. Animi imperio-utimur. We make use of the dominion of the mind, i. e. from the mind we derive dominion.-Corporis servitio magis utimur. But we use rather the servitude of the body, i. e. to the body we are rather in servitude. The meaning of the whole is, From the mind we derive dominion; but that which we derive from our corporeal nature is rather servitude than dominion. Utimur is connected with servitio by Zeugma. Alterum-alterum, the former, i. e. animi imperium, the dominion of the mind,-the latter, i. e. corporis servitio, the servitude of the body.

In this temple, built by Camillus, upon the side of the Capitoline mount, the senate that day assembled, and in a private apartment of this temple the conspirators seem to have been detained, until they were introduced into the senate. Magnafrequentia, t 257, R. 7, (a.) Volturcium cum legatis. Cure in this place does not imply any very close connection of time, as it appears from Cicero, (Or. in Cat. III, 4,) that Volturcius was introduced apart from the Gauls. It is equivalent to et. XLVII. Quid, aut qua de causa, consilii habuisset, "what design he had entertained, or for what reason he had entertained it." Fingere alia, i. e. other than what pertained to the conspiracy. 2Nihil amplius scire quam legatos. This expression is thought by some to be ambiguous. Its more obvious meaning is that "he knew nothing more than the ambassadors knew." Kritz and Herzog however interpret it to mean that "he knew nothing more than," or taking nihil for neminem that A" he knew none besides the armuas~,Jors:" i. e. none of the conspirators besides. If we translate docet, "he shows," the common translation may perhaps be sustained, for it is obvious from Chap XLVIII, that he disclosed many things relating to the conspiracy, though most of them may have been known to the'ambassadors also.

Page  332 332 NOTES ON THE XLIX Sed iisdem temporibus. In what follows, Sallust appears to aim at defending Cicero from the charge brought against him by Crassus; but in doing this he brings a very improbable charge against Catulus and Piso, for the purpose of screening from censure Caesar, his personal friend. Nam uterque exercebant, $ 209, R. 11. (4.) Piso oppugnatus injudicio, etc. sc. inimicitiam exercebat. Oppugnatus sc a Cacsare. Propter cujusdam Transpadani supplicium. These words are to be con nected to oppugnatus, not to pecuniarum repetundarum. In a prosecu tion against Piso for extortion Caesar made an attack upon him for unjustly punishing a certain individual. Pontificatus, sc. maximi. Ab adolescentulo Ccesare. Caesar, though at this time thirty-six years old is called adolecentulus in reference to the more advanced age of Catulus Opportuna videbatur, i. e. for Caesar, on account of the magnitude of his debts, and this consideration caused the accusation to be more readily believed. Privatim-publice. These adverbs belong not to debebat, but to liberalitate and muneribus. QueB se —udisse dicerent, instead of quce audissent ut dicebant, O 266, 3, 3d clause.

Tiberius Nero had proposed that the conspirators then in custody should be strictly guarded, until Catiline and his army were vanquished, and that the whole subject should then be referred to the senate. Hujuscemodi verba. From the use of this expression, in relation to the speeches of Caesar and Cato, it is evident that we have their sentiments only, and not their language. LI. Haud facile, etc. This sentence contains the reason of the preceding but the causal particle nam or enim is here as in many other places omitted. Valet, sc. animus.

The Rhodians had received from the Romans, in recompense for services rendered the latter in the war against Antiochus, a large part of Lycia and Caria. Impunitos eos dimisere. The Rhodians were however deprived of tho provinces previously bestowed upon them. Quid in illis, —" in their case," " in respect to them." Novum consilium. The new measure here alluded to, was the punishment of a Roman citizen with death, as proposed by Silanus. His utendum, sc. pcenis,. g. imprisonment, exile, &c.

Enumeravere can be connected with sevitia only by zeugma, but it is appropriate to quac victis acciderent; " have shown what would be the savage character of the war, and enumerated the evils which would befall the vanquished.' Rapi Virgines, sc. dixerunt, which is implied in enumeravere. An, uti vos; after an supply eo pertinuit. Injuriae sueT; 208, (7), (a.), & ~ 211, R. 3, (c.)

Quid in alios statuatis, i. e. other than these conspirators. Ex bonis, sc. exemplis.-Ab dignis, sc. poen&. Devictis Atheniensibus triginta viros imposuere, ~ 224. Invidere bonis. According to Cortius and Kritz, institutzs is to be supplied; according to Gerlach and Herzog, hominibus. With the latter boni will signify those excelling in knowledge of any kind. Invidere which requires a dative is here connected with imitari requiring an accusative. In such a connection the noun or pronoun is in general repeated in that case which each verb requires. Tractarent, $ 264, 5.-Ea populus latari, ~ 232, (2.) Merito dicerefieri, sc. ea, from the preceding clause. Ubi paulatim licentia crevit, $ 259, R. 1, (2,), (d.) Stultce lItitis, 211, R. 12. Tur lex Porcia. Here the apodosis of the sentence begins, the protasis commencing with postquam. Quibus legibus. The noun is repeated with the relative, sometimes for the sake of perspicuity, and sometimes for emphasis. In primis magna, ~ 127, 2. Qui ea bene parta. The reader might expect, instead of ea, id referring to imperium. Sallust has made use of the plural " these things," to de. note separately what was previously expressed collectively by imperium. Publicandas eorum pecunias,-neu quis referat, a double construction fol

Alius alii varie assentiebantur, i. e. they signified their agreement in sen timent with Silanus, Nero or Caesar. Verbo assentiebantur. The opinion of the senators was given either viva voce or by a division, (discessione.) Sallust has omitted all notice of the speeches of Catulus and Cicero, delivered on this occasion. Eli mihi disseruisse videntur. Cato states the real question to be, not what punishment is suitable for the conspirators, but what means shall be resorted to, to prevent the success of their conspiracy. Persequare, O 209, R. 7, (a.) Si tsta cujuscumque modi sunt. The severity of Cato's manners led him to speak contemptuously of the luxuries prized so highly by many of his hearers. De sociorum injuriis: an objective genitive, ~ 211, R. 2. In hoc ordine, i. e. in senatu. Sed ea, sc. verba. Non id agitur, 6 207, R. 22.

Hic mihi quisquam. Reference is here very evidently made to Caesar, but the reference is the'more severe from the use of the indefinite pronoun quisquam, " some one." Miller reads it interrogatively, "does any one?" Malarum rerum audacia, $ 211, R. 12. Sint sane, $ 209, R. 2, (2), & ~ 260, R. 6. Misericordes infuribus. In this sense of in, it is commonly followed by the accusative, but see Chap. LI, quid in illis, and In in Diet. Perditum eant, ~ 276, II, R. 2.

Before diverso, etc. nempe, " to wit," may be supplied, $ 207, R. 22. St periculum ex illis metuit, se. C. Carsar. Sin-solus non timet. If Caesar alone entertained no apprehension, he might well be suspected of having a connection with the conspirators. Iulto pulcherrimam, ~ 127, 3. Quo nobis nulla sunt, "none of which,"-. Omnia virtutis prwnmia. Such as civil and military offices, and other public honors. Hic pecunice, i. e. in senatu. Apprehensis hostibusfaciatis, $ 250, R. 3.

Rome) was no longer capable of producing offspring, S 257, R. 10. The common reading is Sicuti effeta parentum, multis, &c. Others read effetce parentum-. The reading adopted in the text is that suggested by Miiller. LIV. Igitur his genus, cetas, eloquentia prope equalia fuere, ~ 205, R. 2, (2). The Porcian gens was plebeian, the Julian patrician, but both had en joyed in an equal degree the honors of the state. -itas. At this time Cato was thirty-three, and Cesar about thirty-seven years of age.

The meaning is, " they are not under the same necessity as we," or, they are under no necessity, as we are. Nos pro patria, etc. These words express the necessity imposed on the conspirators, and are contrasted withthe words following, which denote the circumstances under which the troops of the state would fight.
