35. insequens annus tribunos militares1 consulari potestate habuit A. Sempronium Atratinum L. Quinctium Cincinnatum L. Furium Medullinum L. Horatium Barbatum. [2] Veientibus annorum viginti indutiae datae et Aequis triennii, cum plurium annorum petissent; et a seditionibus urbanis otium fuit.

[3] annum insequentem neque bello foris neque domi seditione insignem ludi bello voti celebrem et [p. 372] tribunorum militum apparatu et finitimorum2 concursu fecere. [4] tribuni consulari potestate erant Ap. Claudius3 Crassus Sp. Nautius4 Rutulus5 L. Sergius6 Fidenas Sex. Julius Iulus.7 spectaculum comitate etiam hospitum, ad quam publice consenserant,8 advenis gratius fuit. [5] post ludos contiones seditiosae tribunorum plebi fuerunt, obiurgantium multitudinem quod admiratione eorum quos odisset stupens, [6?] in aeterno se ipsa teneret servitio, et non modo ad spem consulatus in partem revocandam adspirare non auderet, sed ne in tribunis quidem militum creandis, quae communia essent comitia patrum ac plebis, aut sui aut suorum meminisset. [7] desineret ergo mirari cur nemo de commodis plebis ageret; eo impendi laborem ac periculum unde emolumentum atque honos speretur; nihil non adgressuros homines si magna conatis magna praemia proponantur; [8] ut quidem aliquis tribunus plebis ruat caecus in certamina periculo ingenti, fructu nullo, ex quibus pro certo habeat patres, adversus quos tendered,9 bello inexpiabili se persecuturos, apud plebem, pro qua dimicaverit, nihilo se honoratiorem fore, neque sperandum neque postulandum esse. [9] magnos animos magnis honoribus fieri. neminem se plebeium [p. 374] contempturum, ubi contemni desissent.10 experiundam rem denique in uno aut altero esse sitne aliqui plebeius ferendo magno honori, an portento simile miraculoque sit fortem ac strenuum virum aliquem exsistere ortum ex plebe. [10] summa vi expugnatum esse ut tribuni militum consulari potestate et ex plebe crearentur. petisse viros domi militiaeque spectatos; primis annis suggillatos, repulsos, risui patribus fuisse; desisse postremo praebere ad contumeliam os. [11] nec se videre cur non lex quoque abrogetur, qua id liceat quod nunquam futurum sit; minorem quippe ruborem fore in iuris iniquitate quam si per indignitatem ipsorum praetereantur.
