10. diesque quadraginta sine ullo conatu sedentes1 in conspectu hostium absumpserant. inde spes data Philippo est per Epirotarum gentem temptandae pacis; [2] habitoque concilio delecti ad eam rem agendam Pausanias praetor et Alexander magister equitum consulem et regem, ubi in artissimas ripas Aous cogitur amnis, in colloquium adduxerunt. summa postulatorum consulis erat: [3] praesidia ex civitatibus rex deduceret; iis, quorum agros urbesque populatus esset, redderet res quae comparerent; ceterorum aequo arbitrio aestimatio fieret. [4] Philippus aliam aliarum civitatium condicionem esse respondit: quas ipse cepisset, eas liberaturum; quae sibi traditae a maioribus essent, earum hereditaria ac iusta possessione non excessurum. [5] si quas quererentur belli clades eae civitates, cum quibus bellatum foret, arbitrio quo vellent populorum, cum quibus pax utrisque fuisset, se usurum. [6] consul nihil ad id quidem arbitro aut iudice opus esse dicere: cui enim non apparere ab eo, qui prior arma intulisset, iniuriam ortam, nec Philippum ab ullis bello lacessitum priorem vim omnibus fecisse? [7] inde cum ageretur, quae civitates liberandae essent, Thessalos primos omnium nominavit consul. ad id vero adeo accensus indignatione est rex, ut exclamaret: “quid victo gravius imperares, T. Quincti?” [8] atque ita se ex colloquio proripuit; et temperatum aegre est, quin [p. 182] missilibus, quia dirempti medio amni fuerant, pugnam2 inter se consererent. [9] postero die per excursiones ab stationibus primo in planitie satis ad id patenti multa levia commissa proelia sunt; [10] deinde recipientibus se regiis in arta et confragosa loca aviditate accensi certaminis eo quoque Romani penetravere. [11] pro his ordo et militaris disciplina et genus armorum erat, aptum3 tegendis corporibus; pro hoste loca et catapultae ballistaeque in omnibus prope rupibus quasi in muro dispositae. [12] multis hinc atque illinc vulneribus acceptis, cum etiam, ut in proelio iusto, aliquot cecidissent, nox pugnae finem facit.
