The fourth legion, imitating the virtue of this legion, under the leadership of
Lucius Egnatuleius, the quaestor, a most virtuous and intrepid citizen, has also
acknowledged the authority and joined the army of Caius Caesar.
We, therefore, O conscript fathers, must take care that those things which this
most illustrious young man, this most excellent of all men has of his own accord
done, and still is doing, be sanctioned by our authority; and the admirable
unanimity of the veterans, those most brave men, and of the Martial and of the
fourth legion, in their zeal for the reestablishment of the republic, be
encouraged by our praise and commendation. And let us pledge ourselves this day
that their advantage, and honors, and rewards shall he cared for by us as soon
as the consuls elect have entered in their magistracy.
