Polybius, Histories, book 22, The Senate Investigates Philip (search)
The Senate Investigates Philip About the same time ambassadors came to Rome from Complaints lodged against Philip at Rome, B. C. 185. king Eumenes, informing the Senate of the encroachment of Philip upon the cities in Thrace. There came also the exiles of the Maronitae denouncing Philip, and charging him with being the cause of their expulsion. These were followed by Athamanians, Perrhaebians, and Thessalians, demanding the restoration of their cities which Philip had taken from them during the war with Antiochus. Ambassadors also came from Philip to make answer to all accusers. After repeated debates between all these envoys and the ambassadors of Philip, the Senate decided to appoint a commission at once, to investigate the actions of Philip, and to protect all who chose to state their views and their complaints of the king to his face. A commission of investigation appointed.The legates thus appointed were Quintus Caecilius, Marcus Baebius, and Tiberius Claudius.Livy (39, 24) give
Polybius, Histories, book 22, Caecilius In the Achaean Assembly (search)
Caecilius In the Achaean Assembly Having thus finished their deliberations, the assembly Winter of B. C. 185. broke up and the people separated to their several cities. But subsequently, while the (Nemean) games were in course of celebration, Quintus Caecilius arrived from Macedonia, on his way back from the embassy which he had been conducting to Philip.

Aristaenus said not a word, showing clearly by his silence that he disapproved of what had been done and agreed with the words of Caecilius.

Polybius, Histories, book 32, Polybius Responds to Scipio's Speech (search)
Polybius Responds to Scipio's Speech Polybius was taken aback by the opening words of Scipio Aemilianus, b. B.C. 185. the young man's speech (for he was only just eighteen), and said, "In heaven's name, Scipio, don't say such things, or take into your head such an idea. It is not from any want of appreciation of you, or any intention of slighting you, that I have acted as I have done: far from it! It is merely that, your brother being the elder, I begin and end my remarks with him, and address my explanations and counsels to him, in the belief that you share the same opinions. However, I am delighted to hear you say now that you appear to yourself to be somewhat less spirited than is becoming to members of your family: for you show by this that you have a really high spirit, and I should gladly devote myself to helping you to speak or act in any way worthy of your ancestors. As for learning, to which I see you and your brother devoting yourselves at present with so much earnestness a
