[5] As Caesar himself was about to move his lines of legionaries, and was already going forward into action, he saw first one of his centurions, a man experienced in war and faithful to him, encouraging his men and challenging them to vie with him in prowess. Him Caesar addressed by name and said: ‘Caius Crassinius,1 what are our hopes, and how does our confidence stand?’

1 In Caesar's version of this episode ( B.C. iii. 91 and 99), the name is Crastinus.
