51. Scipio retentum secum Laelium, dum captivos obsidesque et praedam ex consilio eius disponeret, satis1 omnibus compositis, [2?] data quinqueremi et2 captivis cum3 Magone et quindecim fere senatoribus qui simul cum eo capti erant in navem4 inpositis nuntium victoriae Romam mittit. [3] ipse paucos dies quibus morari Carthagine statuerat exercendis navalibus pedestribusque copiis absumpsit. [4] primo die legiones in armis quattuor milium spatio decurrerunt; secundo die arma curare et tergere ante tentoria iussi; tertio die rudibus5 inter se in modum iustae pugnae concurrerunt praepilatisque missilibus iaculati sunt; quarto die quies data; quinto iterum in armis decursum est. [5] hunc ordinem laboris quietisque, quoad Carthagine morati sunt, servarunt. [6] remigium classicique milites tranquillo in altum evecti, agilitatem navium simulacris navalis pugnae experiebantur. [7] haec extra urbem terra marique corpora simul animosque ad bellum acuebant; urbs ipsa strepebat apparatu belli fabris omnium generum [p. 196] in publicam officinam6 inclusis. [8] dux cuncta pari7 cura obibat: nunc in classe ac navali erat, nunc cum legionibus decurrebat,8 nunc operibus aspiciendis tempus dabat, quaeque in officinis quaeque in armamentario ac navalibus fabrorum multitudo plurima in singulos dies certamine ingenti faciebat. [9] his ita incohatis refectisque quae quassata erant muri,9 dispositisque praesidiis ad custodiam urbis, Tarraconem est profectus, a multis legationibus protinus in via aditus, [10?] quas partim dato responso ex itinere dimisit, partim distulit Tarraconem, quo omnibus novis veteribusque sociis edixerat conventum. et cuncti fere qui cis Hiberum incolunt populi, multi etiam ulterioris provinciae convenerunt.

[11] Carthaginiensium duces primo ex industria famam captae Carthaginis conpresserunt; deinde, ut clarior res erat quam ut tegi ac dissimulari posset, elevabant verbis: [12] necopinato adventu ac prope furto unius diei urbem unam Hispaniae interceptam, cuius10 rei tam parvae praemio elatum insolentem iuvenem inmodico gaudio speciem magnae victoriae imposuisse; [13] at ubi adpropinquare tres duces, tres victores hostium exercitus audisset, occursuram ei extemplo domesticorum funerum memoriam. [14] haec in volgus iactabant, haudquaquam ipsi ignari quantum sibi ad omnia virium Carthagine amissa decessisset.
