ir amazement at his laying it down. Perhaps they were ashamed to call for an accounting, or entertained other good feeling toward him, or a belief that his despotism had been beneficial to the state. Thus there was a cessation of factions for a short time while Sulla lived, and a compensation for the evils which Sulla had wrought. After his death the troubles broke out afresh and Y.R. 705 continued until Gaius Cæsar, who had held the command B.C. 49 in Gaul by election for some years, was ordered by the Senate to lay down his command. He charged that it was not the wish of the Senate, but of Pompey, his enemy, who had command of an army in Italy, and was scheming to depose him. So he sent a proposal that both should retain their armies, so that neither need fear the other's enmity, or that Pompey should dismiss his forces also and live as a private citizen under the laws in like manner with him-se

The Vatican codex says 1300 stades; all the others say 3300 (378 miles), which is quite incredible. in three days and delivered to the newly elected consuls as they entered the senate-house on the first Y.R. 705 of the calends of January.Literally: " On the day of the new moon of the year." The letter embraced a calm B.C. 49 recital of all that Cæsar had done from the beginning of his career and a proposal that he would lay down his command at the same time with Pompey, but that if Pompey should retain his command he would not lay down his own, but would come quickly and avenge his country's wrongs and his own. When this letter was read, as it was considered a declaration of war, a vehement shout was raised on all sides that Lucius Domitius be appointed as Cæsar's successor. Dom

The Alexandrines declared as sovereigns the eldest son and Cleopatra. But the adherents of the son excited a se- dition, and banished Cleopatra, who retired with her sister into Syria.About B. C. 49. It was about this time that Pompey the Great, in his flight from Palæ-pharsalus,B. ix. c. v. § 6. came to Pelusium and Mount Casium. He was treacherously slain by the king's party. When Cæsar arrived, he put the young prince to death, and sending for Cleopatra from her place of exile, appointed her queen of Egypt, declaring also her surviving brother, who was very young, and herself joint sovereigns. After the death of Cæsar and the battle at Pharsalia, Antony passed over into Asia; he

He allied himself with the Pompeians, and was killed in Africa in 47 (cf. Bell. Afr. 96). In 62 B.C. Manlius prosecuted P. Cornelius Sulla on the charge of conspiracy with Catiline.

Scr. ad urbem xiv sub noctem aut xiiii ante lucem in K. Febr. a. 705 (49). CICERO ATTICO salutem subito consilium cepi ut ante quam luceret exirem, ne qui conspectus fieret aut sermo, lictoribus praesertim laureatis. de reliquo neque hercule quid agam neque quid acturus sim scio; ita sum perturbatus temeritate nostri amentissimi consili. tibi vero quid suadeam quoius ipse consilium exspecto?

Scr. in Formiano iv Non. Febr. a. 705 (49). CICERO ATTICO salutem tuae litterae mihi gratae iucundaeque sunt. de pueris in Graeciam transportandis tum cogitabam cum fuga ex Italia quaeri videbatur. nos enim Hispaniam peteremus; illis hoc aeque commodum non erat. tu ipse cum Sexto etiam nunc mihi videris Romae recte esse posse; etenim minime amici Pompeio nostro esse debetis. nemo enim umquam tantum de urbanis praediis detraxit. videsne me etiam iocari? scire iam te oportet L.
