Sabinus did also afford these his assistance to the same purpose
by letters he sent, wherein he accused Archelaus before Caesar, and highly
commended Antipas. Salome also, and those with her, put the crimes which
they accused Archelaus of in order, and put them into Caesar's hands; and

from Varus and Sabinus on this occasion, he assembled the principal persons
among the Romans together, (in which assembly Caius, the son of Agrippa,
and his daughter Julias, but by himself adopted for his own son, sat in
the first seat,) and gave the pleaders leave to speak.
