Several battles were fought at sea, with Sextus Pompeius, with various success; of Caesar's two fleets, one under the command of Agrippa gained a victory; the other, led by Caesar himself, was cut off; and his soldiers, being sent on shore, were exposed to great dangers. Pompeius, being afterwards defeated, fled into Sicily. Marcus Lepidus, who came from Africa, under the pretext of joining Caesar in the war which he was about to wage against Sextus Pompeius, when he declared war against Caesar himself, being deserted by his army, and deprived of the honour of the triumvirate, obtained his life. Caesar conferred a naval crown upon Agrippa, an honour never before bestowed on any commander.
