[112] I return to my original subject, that, when the proceedings were being carried on against me, while the city was taken and oppressed, Gellius and Firmius and Titius, all Furies of the same class, were the chiefs and leaders of those mercenary bands, while the proposer of the law himself was in no respect free from being implicated in their baseness, and audacity, and iniquity. But when the law was passed for my restoration to my dignity, no one thought that either infirm health or old age supplied him with any reasonable excuse for being absent, there was no one who did not consider that by his vote he was recalling not only me but also the republic at the same time to its ancient position.
