And indeed, O Romans, it is impossible but that either the men must be impious
who have levied armies against the consul, or else that he must be an enemy
against whom they have rightly taken arms. And this doubt the senate has this

the possibility of there being any. Caius Caesar, who has upheld and who is
still upholding the republic and your freedom by his zeal and wisdom, and at the
expense of his patrimonial estate, has been complimented with the highest
praises of the senate.
