49. inde L. Tarquinius regnare occepit, cui Superbo [p. 56] cognomen facta indiderunt, quia socerum gener sepultura prohibuit, Romulum quoque insepultum perisse dictitans, [2] primoresque patrum, quos Servi rebus favisse credebat, interfecit; conscius deinde male quaerendi regni ab se ipso adversus se exemplum capi posse, armatis corpus circumsaepsit; [3] neque enim ad ius regni quicquam praeter vim habebat, ut qui neque populi iussu neque auctoribus patribus regnaret. [4] eo accedebat, ut in caritate civium nihil spei reponenti metu regnum tutandum esset. quem ut pluribus incuteret, cognitiones capitalium rerum sine consiliis per se solus exercebat perque eam causam occidere, [5] in exilium agere, bonis multare poterat non suspectos modo aut invisos, sed unde nihil aliud quam praedam sperare posset. [6] praecipue ita patrum numero inminuto statuit nullos in patres legere, quo contemptior paucitate ipsa ordo esset minusque per se nihil agi indignarentur. [7] hic enim regum primus traditum a prioribus morem de omnibus senatum consulendi solvit, domesticis consiliis rem publicam administravit; bellum, pacem, foedera, societates per se ipse, cum quibus voluit, iniussu populi ac senatus fecit diremitque. [8] Latinorum sibi maxime gentem conciliabat, ut peregrinis quoque opibus tutior inter cives esset, neque hospitia modo cum primoribus eorum, sed adfinitates quoque iungebat. Octavio Mamilio Tusculano— [9] is longe princeps Latini nominis erat, si famae credimus, ab Ulixe deaque Circa oriundusei Mamilio filiam nuptum dat perque eas nuptias multos sibi cognatos amicosque eius conciliat.
