We have pronounced that resolutions of the
senate which have been produced by him are forged. Can we now pronounce them
genuine? We have declared that laws have been carried by him by means of
violence, and in a manner contrary to the auspices, and that neither the
burgesses nor the common people are bound by them. Do you consider it possible
that those laws should be reestablished? You have judicially decided that
Antonius has embezzled seven hundred millions of sesterces of the public money.
Can he now be released from the charge of peculation? Exemptions, grants of the
freedom of the city, priesthoods, kingdoms have been sold by him. Can those
tablets again be put up which you took down by your decrees?
