em among the other Sicilian Greeks as well; indeed many cities of the island continued to use his laws down to the time when the Sicilian Greeks as a body were granted Roman citizenship.Cicero (Cic. ad Att. 14.12), writing in April, 43 B.C., states that this was an act of Antony, based upon a law of Caesar's presumably passed by the Roman people. Nothing can have come of it, since Sextus Pompeius held the island by late 43 B.C. and lost it to Augustus, who showe43 B.C. and lost it to Augustus, who showed no interest in extending Roman citizenship to the provinces on such a wholesale scale. Pliny in his sketch of Sicily (3.88-91) lists, shortly before A.D. 79, several different degrees of civic status for the cities of the island. Accordingly, when in later times laws were framed for the Syracusans by CephalusIn 339 B.C.; cp. Book 16.82. in the time of Timoleon and by Polydorus in the time of King Hiero,Hiero was given the title of "King" in 270 B.C. and probab

o restore the government of their fathers, slew in the Senate this most popular man, who was also the one most experienced in the art Y.R. 710 of government. The people mourned for him greatly. B.C. 44 They scoured the city in pursuit of his murderers. They buried him in the middle of the forum and built a temple on the place of his funeral pile, and offered sacrifice to him as a god. Y.R. 711 And now civil discord broke out again worse than B.C. 43 ever and increased enormously. Massacres, banishments, and proscriptions of both senators and the so-called knights took place straightway, including great numbers of both classes, the chief of factions surrendering their enemies to each other, and for this purpose not sparing even their friends and brothers; so much does animosity toward rivals overpower the love of kindred. So in the course of events the Roman empire was partitioned, as though it had

of infantry, one of which was composed of new recruits as yet inexperienced. The other two had served under him before and were entirely trustworthy. Antony advanced against him with fury, drew a line of circumvallation around Mutina, and laid siege to Decimus. Y.R. 711 In Rome, at the beginning of the new year, the consuls, Hirtius and Pansa, convened the Senate on the subject of Antony immediately after the sacrifices had been B.C. 43 performed and in the very temple. Cicero and his friends urged that Antony be now declared a public enemy, since he had seized Cisalpine Gaul with an armed force against the will of the Senate and made of it a point of attack on the republic, and had brought into Italy an army given to him to operate against the Thracians. They spoke also of his seeking the supreme power as Cæsar's successor, because he publicly surrounded himself in the city with such a lar

rabo here refers to Morgantium in Sicily, which had disappeared in his days, and which he mentions in b. vi. c. ii. § 4. thus received its name from the Morgetes. But the city of the Rhegini became very powerful, and possessed many dependent settlements. It has always been a bulwark for us against the island [of Sicily], and, indeed, has recently served to that purpose when Sextus Pompeins alienated Sicily.Sextus Pompeius, having received from the senate the command of the fleet, B. C. 43, in a short time made himself master of Sicily, which he held till 36. It was called Rhegium either, as Æschylus says, because of the convulsion which had taken place in this region; for Sicily was broken from the continent by earthquakes, Whence it is called Rhegium.This is a quotation from one of the missing works of Æschylus. Others,Virgil speaks of this great catastrophe, Æn. iii. 414, Hæc loca, vi quondam et vasta convulsa ruina (Tantum ævi longinqua valet mutare vetustas<

Scr. eodem die quo ep. 2a. 711 (43). Cicero Bruto salutem L. Clodius, tribunus plebis designatus, valde me diligit vel, ut e)mfatikw/teron dicam, valde me amat. quod cum mihi ita persuasum sit, non dubito (bene enim me nosti) quin illum quoque iudices a me amari. nihil enim mihi minus hominis videtur quam non respondere in amore iis a quibus provocere. is mihi visus est suspicari nec sine magno quidem dolore aliquid a suis vel per suos potius iniquos ad te esse delatum quo tuus animus a se esset alienior. non soleo, mi Brute, quod tibi notum esse arbitror, temere adfirmare de altero; est enim periculosum propter occultas hominum voluntates multiplicisque naturas; sed Clodi animum perspectum habeo, cognitum, iudicatum. multa eius indicia sed ad scribendum non necessaria. volo enim testimonium hoc tibi videri potius quam epistulam. auctus Antoni beneficio est. eius ipsius benefici magna pars a te est. itaque eum salvis nobis vellet salvum. in eum autem locum rem adductam intelle

Scr. Dyrrachi iii antprid. id. Mai. a. 711 (43). Brutus Ciceroni salutem quanta sim laetitia adfectus cognitis rebus Bruti nostri et consulum facilius est tibi existimare quam mihi scribere. Cum alia laudo et gaudeo accidisse, tum quod Bruti eruptio non solum ipsi salutaris fuit sed etiam maximo ad victoriam adiumento. quod scribis mihi trium Antoniorum unam atque eandem causam esse, quid ego sentiam mei iudici esse: statuo nihil nisi hoc, senatus aut populi Romani iudicium esse de iis civibus qui pugnantes non interierint. at hoc ipsum inquies inique facis qui hostilis animi in rem publicam homines civis appelles. immo iustissime. quod enim nondum senatus censuit nec populus Romanus iussit, id adroganter non praeiudico neque revoco ad arbitrium meum. illud quidem non muto, quod ei quem me occidere res non coegit neque crudeliter quicquam eripui neque dissolute quicquam remisi habuique in mea potestate quoad bellum fuit. multo equidem honestius iudico magisque quod concedere

Scr. ex castris Id. Mai. a. 711 (43). Brutus Ciceroni salutem * * * nunc, Cicero, nunc agendum est ne frustra oppressum esse Antonium gavisi simus neu semper primi cuiusque mali excidendi causa sit ut aliud renascatur illo peius. nihil iam neque opinantibus aut patientibus nobis adversi evenire potest in quo non cum omnium culpa tum praecipue tua futura sit, cuius tantam auctoritatem senatus ac populus Romanus non solum esse patitur sed etiam cupit quanta maxima in libera civitate unius esse potest; quam tu non solum bene sentiendo sed etiam prudenter tueri debes. prudentia porro, quae tibi superest, nulla abs te desideratur nisi modus in tribuendis honoribus. Alia omnia sic adsunt ut eum quolibet antiquorum comparari possint tuae virtutes; unum hoc a grato animo liberalique profectum cautiorem ac moderatiorem liberalitatem desiderat. nihil enim senatus cuiquam dare debet quod male cogitantibus exemplo aut praesidio sit. itaque timeo de consulatu ne Caesar tuus altius se ascen

Scr. ex. m. Maio aut in. Iun. a. 711 (43). Cicero Bruto salutem multos tibi commendabo et commendem necesse est. optimus enim quisque vir et civis maxime sequitur tuum iudicium tibique omnes fortes viri dare operam et studium volunt, nec quisquam est quin ita existimet, meam apud te et auctoritatem et gratiam valere plurimum. sed C. Nasenniun, municipem Suessanum, tibi ita commendo ut neminem diligentius. Cretensi bello Metello imperatore octavum principem duxit, postea in re familiari occupatus fuit, hoc tempore cum rei publicae partibus tum tua excellenti dignitate commotus voluit per te aliquid auctoritatis adsumere. fortem virum, Brute, tibi commendo, frugi hominem et, si quid ad rem pertinet, etiam locupletem. pergratum mihi erit si eum ita tractaris ut merito tuo mihi gratias agere possit.

Scr. Romae. in. Quint. ...ut videtur a. 711 (43). Cicero Bruto salutem fungerer eo officio quo tu functus es in meo luctu teque per litteras consolarer, nisi scirem iis remediis quibus meum dolorem tu levasses te in tuo non egere, ac velim facilius quam tunc mihi nunc tibi tute medeare. est autem alienum tanto viro quantus es tu, quod alteri praeceperit id ipsum facere non posse. me quidem cum rationes quas conlegeras tum auctoritas tua a nimio maerore deterruit. Cum enim mollius tibi ferre viderer quam deceret virum praesertim eum qui alios consolari soleret, accusasti me per litteras gravioribus verbis quam tua consuetudo ferebat. itaque iudicium tuum magni aestimans idque veritus me ipse conlegi et ea quae didiceram, legeram, acceperam, graviora duxi tua auctoritate addita. ac mihi tum, Brute, officio solum erat et naturae, tibi nunc populo et scaenae, ut dicitur, serviendum est. nam cum in te non solum exercitus tui sed omnium civium ac paene gentium coniecti oculi sint, m

Scr. Romae med. m. Quint. a. 711 (43). Cicero Bruto salutem nullas adhuc a te litteras habebamus, ne famam quidem quae declararet te cognita senatus auctoritate in Italiam adducere exercitum; quod ut faceres idque maturares magno opere desiderabat res publica. ingravescit enim in dies intestinum malum, nec extemis hostibus magis quam domesticis laboramus, qui erant omnino ab initio belli sed facilius frangebantur. erectior senatus erat non sententiis solum nostris sed etiam cohortationibus excitatus. erat in senatu satis vehemens et acer Pansa cum in ceteros huius generis tum maxime in socerum, cui consuli non animus ab initio, non fides ad extremum defuit. bellum ad Mutinam gerebatur, nihil ut in Caesare reprehenderes, non nulla in Hirtio. huius belli fortuna ut in secundis flu/xa, ut in adversi/s bona. erat victrix res publica caesis Antoni copiis, ipso expulso.
