And in this matter I myself am a witness in favour of Marcus Marcellus. For as our opinions have at all times agreed in time of peace, so did they then in respect of that man. How often have I seen him affected with the deepest grief at the insolence of certain men, and dreading also the ferocity of victory! On which account your liberality, O Caius Caesar, ought to he more acceptable to us who have seen those things. For now we may compare, not the causes of the two parties together, but the use which each would have made of victory.
