2. cum de postulatis Samnitium T. Aemilius praetor senatum consuluisset reddendumque iis foedus patres censuissent, [2?] praetor Samnitibus respondit nec quo minus perpetua cum eis amicitia esset per populum Romanum stetisse, nec contradici quin, quoniam ipsos belli culpa sua contracti taedium [p. 6] ceperit, amicitia de integro reconcilietur; [3] quod ad1 Sidicinos attineat, nihil intercedi quo minus Samniti populo pacis bellique liberum arbitrium sit. [4] foedere icto cum domum revertissent, extemplo inde exercitus Romanus deductus, annuo stipendio et trium mensum frumento accepto, quod pepigerat consul ut tempus indutiis daret quoad legati redissent. [5] Samnites copiis iisdem quibus usi adversus Romanum bellum fuerant contra Sidicinos profecti, haud in dubia spe erant mature urbis hostium potiundae, [6?] cum2 ab Sidicinis deditio prius ad Romanos coepta fieri est; dein, postquam patres ut seram eam ultimaque tandem necessitate expressam aspernabantur, ad Latinos iam sua sponte in arma motos facta est. [7] ne Campani quidemadeo iniuriae Samnitium quam beneficii Romanorum memoria praesentior erathis se armis abstinuere. [8] ex his tot populis unus ingens exercitus duce Latino fines Samnitium ingressus plus populationibus quam proeliis cladium fecit; et quamquam superiores certaminibus Latini erant, haud inviti, ne saepius dimicandum foret, agro hostium excessere. [9] id spatium Samnitibus datum est Romam legatos mittendi; qui cum adissent senatum, conquesti eadem se foederatos pati quae hostes essent passi, [10?] precibus infimis petiere ut [p. 8] satis ducerent Romani victoriam quam Samnitibus3 ex Campano Sidicinoque hoste eripuissent, ne vinci etiam se ab ignavissimis populis sinerent; [11] Latinos Campanosque, si sub dicione populi Romani essent, pro imperio arcerent Samniti agro, sin imperium abnuerent, armis coercerent. [12] adversus haec responsum anceps datum, quia fateri pigebat in potestate sua Latinos iam non esse, timebantque, ne arguendo abalienarent: [13] Campanorum aliam condicionem esse, qui non foedere sed per deditionem in fidem venissent; itaque Campanos, seu velint seu nolint, quieturos; in foedere Latinos nihil esse quod bellare cum quibus ipsi velint prohibeant.
