t the power. blighted through the world ' And ghastly famine made to serve his ends? ' Who hath forgotten how Pompeius' bands ' Seized on the forum? the grim sheen of swords ' When outraged justice trembled, and the spears ' Hemmed in the judgment-seat where Milo Milo was brought to trial for the murder of Clodius in B.C. 52, about three years before this. Pompeius, then sole Consul, had surrounded the tribunal with soldiers, who at one time charged the crowd. Milo was sent into exile at Massilia. stood? ' And now when worn and old and ripe for rest,See Book II., 631. ' Greedy of power, the impious sword again ' He draws. As tigers in Hyrcanian woods ' Wandering, or in the caves that saw their birth, ' Once having lapped the blood of slaughtered kine, ' Shall never cease from rage; e'en so this whelp ' Of cruel Sulla, nursed in civil war, ' Outstrips his master; and the tongue which licked ' That reeking weapon ever thirsts for more. ' Stain once the lips with blood, no other meal

ll others fled Far from his path, in terror of his name, Phocaea's Massilia (Marseilles) was founded from Phocaea in Asia Minor about B.C. LucMarseilles) was founded from Phocaea in Asia Minor about B.C. Lucan (line 392) appears to think that the founders were fugitives from their city when it was stormed by the Persians sixty years later. See Thof Latian fame; Thou'lt ever find, when foreign foes pressed hard, Massilia's prowess on the side of Rome.After the burning of Rome by the Celts a collection was made in Massilia in aid of those who suffered by the fire. Mommsen, vol. i., p. 430. And now, if triumphs in an unknown wothy hostile signs ' Back from our gates, but enter thou in peace ' Massilia's ramparts; let our city rest ' Withdrawn from crime, to Magnus and though I may Towards my western goal, time still remains To blot Massilia out. Rejoice, my troops! ' Unsought the war ye longed for meets yo Heaved up with earthy sod; with lofty towers Crowned; and to shut Massilia from the land. Then did the Grecian city win renown Eternal, death

But thou, Caesar, though losing of thy best, dost know The gods do favour thee. Thessalian fields Gave thee no better fortune, nor the waves That lave Massilia; nor on Pharos' main Didst thou so triumph. By this crime alone Thou from this moment of the better cause Shalt be the Captain. Since the troops were stained With foulest slaughter thus, their leaders shunned All camps with Caesar's joined, and sought again Ilerda's lofty walls; but Caesar's horse Seized on the plain and forced them to the hills Reluctant. There by steepest trench shut in, He cuts them from the river, nor permits Their circling ramparts to enclose a spring. By this dread path Death trapped his captive prey. Which when they knew, fierce anger filled their souls, And took the place of fear. They slew the steeds Now useless grown, and rushed upon their fate; Hopeless of life and flight. But Caesar cried: Hold back your weapons, soldiers, from the foe, Strike not the breast advancing; let the war ' Cost me no blood

'As, when ye fled, your cause. The Consuls' power ' Fails with the dying year: not so does yours; ' By your commandment for the common weal ' Decree Pompeius leader.' With applause They heard his words, and placed their country's fates, Nor less their own, within the chieftain's hands. Then did they shower on people and on kings Honours well earned-Rhodes, Mistress of the Seas, Was decked with gifts; Athena, old in fame, Received her praise, and the rude tribes who dwell On cold Taygetus; Massilia's sons Their own Phocaea's freedom; on the chiefs Of Thracian tribes, fit honours were bestowed. They order Libya by their high decree To serve King Juba's sceptre; and, alas! On Ptolemaeus, of a faithless race The faithless sovereign, scandal to the gods, And shame to Fortune, placed the diadem Of Pella. Boy! against the common herd Fierce is thy weapon. Ah, if that were all! The fatal gift gave, too, Pompeius' life; Bereft thy sister of her sire's bequest,By the will of Ptolemy Auletes,

of peace, Dictator named, to grant their prayers, forsooth: Consul, in honour of the roll of Rome. Then first of all the names by which we now Lie to our masters, men found out the use: For to preserve his right to wield the sword He mixed the civil axes with his brands; With eagles, fasces; with an empty word Clothing his power; and stamped upon the time A worthy designation; for what name Could better mark the dread Pharsalian year Than 'Caesar, Consul'?Caesar was named Dictator while at Massilia. Entering Rome, he held the office for eleven days only, but was elected Consul for the incoming year, B.C. 48, along with Servilius Isauricus. (Caesar, 'De Bello Civili,' iii., 1; Merivale, chapter xvi.) Now the famous field Pretends its ancient ceremonies: calls The tribes in order and divides the votes In vain solemnity of empty urns. Nor did they heed the portents of the sky: Deaf were the augurs to the thunder roll; The owl flew on the left; yet were the birds Propitious sworn. Th
