He supported in his palaces and from his own resources the army of Cnaeus Domitius, that most distinguished man. He sent money to Ephesus to him whom you selected as the most faithful and most highly esteemed of all your friends. He gave him money a second time; he gave him money a third time for you to employ in the war, though be was forced to sell property by auction in order to raise it. He exposed his own person to danger and he was with you, serving in your army against Pharnaces, and he considered him as his own enemy because he was yours.
