6. cum consulis uocem subsecuta patrum indignatio esset, proditur memoriae aduersus crebram implorationem deum, quos testes foederum saepius inuocabant consules, uocem Anni spernentis numina Iouis Romani auditam. [2] certe, cum commotus ira se a uestibulo templi citato gradu proriperet, lapsus per gradus capite grauiter offenso impactus imo ita est saxo ut sopiretur. [3] exanimatum auctores quoniam non omnes sunt, mihi quoque in incerto relictum sit, sicut inter foederum ruptorum testationem ingenti fragore caeli procellam effusam; nam et uera esse et apte ad repraesentandam iram deum ficta possunt. [4] Torquatus missus ab senatu ad dimittendos legatos, cum iacentem Annium uidisset, exclamat, ita ut populo patribusque audita uox pariter sit: 'bene habet; di pium mouere bellum. [5] est caeleste numen; es, magne Iuppiter; haud frustra te patrem deum hominum hac sede sacrauimus. [6] quid cessatis, Quirites uosque patres conscripti, arma capere deis ducibus? sic stratas legiones Latinorum dabo, quemadmodum legatum iacentem uidetis.' [7] [p. 8009] adsensu populi excepta uox consulis tantum ardoris animis fecit ut legatos proficiscentes cura magistratuum magis, qui iussu consulis prosequebantur, quam ius gentium ab ira impetuque hominum tegeret. [8] consensit et senatus bellum; consulesque duobus scriptis exercitibus per Marsos Paelignosque profecti adiuncto Samnitium exercitu ad Capuam, quo iam Latini sociique conuenerant, castra locant. [9] ibi in quiete utrique consuli eadem dicitur uisa species uiri maioris quam pro humano habitu augustiorisque, dicentis ex una acie imperatorem, [10] ex altera exercitum Deis Manibus Matrique Terrae deberi; utrius exercitus imperator legiones hostium superque eas se deuouisset, eius populi partisque uictoriam fore. [11] hos ubi nocturnos uisus inter se consules contulerunt, placuit auerruncandae deum irae uictimas caedi; simul ut, si extis eadem quae somnio uisa fuerant portenderentur, alter uter consulum fata impleret. [12] ubi responsa haruspicum insidenti iam animo tacitae religioni congruerunt, tum adhibitis legatis tribunisque et imperiis deum propalam expositis, ne mors uoluntaria consulis exercitum in acie terreret, [13] comparant inter se ut, ab utra parte cedere Romanus exercitus coepisset, inde se consul deuoueret pro populo Romano Quiritibusque. [14] [p. 8010]agitatum etiam in consilio est ut, si quando unquam seuero ullum imperio bellum administratum esset, tunc uti disciplina militaris ad priscos redigeretur mores. [15] curam acuebat quod aduersus Latinos bellandum erat, lingua, moribus, armorum genere, institutis ante omnia militaribus congruentes: milites militibus, centurionibus centuriones, tribuni tribunis compares collegaeque iisdem <in> praesidiis, saepe iisdem manipulis permixti fuerant. [16] per haec ne quo errore milites caperentur, edicunt consules ne quis extra ordinem in hostem pugnaret.
