But you have dared besides (what is there which you
would not dare?) to say that the Capito line Hill, when I was consul was full of
aimed slaves. I was offering violence to the senate, I suppose, in order to
compel the adoption of those infamous decrees of the senate. O wretched man,
whether those things are not known to you (for you know nothing that is good),
or whether they are, when you dare to speak so shamelessly before such men! For
what Roman knight was there, what youth of noble birth except you, what man of
any rank or class who recollected that he was a citizen, who was not on the
while the senate
was assembled in this temple? who was there, who did not give in his name?
Although there could not be provided checks enough, nor were the books able to
contain their names.
