14. huic tam pacatae profectioni ab urbe regis Etrusci abhorrens mos traditus ab antiquis usque ad [p. 264] nostram aetatem inter cetera sollemnia manet, bona1 Porsinnae regis vendendi. [2] cuius originem moris necesse est aut inter bellum natam esse neque omissam in pace, aut a mitiore crevisse principio quam hic prae se ferat titulus bona hostiliter vendendi. [3] proximum vero est ex iis quae traduntur Porsinnam discedentem ab Ianiculo castra opulenta convecto ex propinquis ac fertilibus Etruriae arvis commeatu Romanis dono dedisse, inopi tum urbe ab longinqua obsidione; [4] ea deinde, ne populo immisso diriperentur hostiliter, venisse, bonaque Porsinnae appellata, gratiam muneris magis significante titulo quam auctionem fortunae regiae quae ne in potestate quidem populi Romani esset.

[5] omisso Romano bello Porsinna, ne frustra in ea loca exercitus adductus videretur, cum parte copiarum filium Arruntem Ariciam oppugnatum mittit. primo Aricinos res necopinata perculerat; [6] arcessita deinde auxilia et a Latinis populis et a Cumis tantum spei fecere ut acie decernere auderent. proelio inito adeo concitato impetu se intulerant Etrusci ut funderent ipso incursu Aricinos; [7] cumanae cohortes arte adversus vim usae declinavere paululum, effuseque praelatos hostes conversis signis ab tergo adortae [p. 266] sunt. ita in medio prope iam victores caesi Etrusci.2 [8] pars perexigua duce amisso, quia nullum propius perfugium erat, Romam inermes et fortuna et specie supplicum delati sunt. ibi benigne excepti divisique in hospitia. [9] curatis volneribus alii profecti domos, nuntii hospitalium beneficiorum; multos Romae hospitum urbisque caritas tenuit. his locus ad habitandum datus quem deinde Tuscum vicum appellarunt.
