22. secundum orationem praetoris murmur ortum aliorum cum adsensu, aliorum inclementer adsentientes increpantium; [2] et iam non singuli tantum sed populi universi inter se altercabantur. tum inter magistratus gentisdamiurgos vocant; decem numero creanturcertamen nihilo segnius quam inter multitudinem esse. [3] quinque relaturos de societate Romana se aiebant suffragiumque daturos; quinque lege cautum testabantur, ne quid quod adversus Philippi societatem esset aut referre magistratibus aut decernere concilio ius esset. is quoque dies iurgiis est consumptus.

[4] supererat unus iusti concilii dies; tertio enim lex iubebat decretum fieri; in quem adeo exarsere studia, ut vix parentes ab liberis temperaverint. Pisias Pellenensis erat; [5] filium damiurgum nomine [p. 222] Memnonem habebat, partis eius quae decretum1 recitari perrogarique sententias prohibebat. [6] is diu obtestatus filium ut consulere Achaeos communi saluti pateretur neu pertinacia sua gentem universam perditum iret, [7?] postquam parum proficiebant preces,2 iuratus se eum sua manu interempturum nec pro filio sed pro hoste habiturum minis pervicit, [8?] ut postero die coniungeret iis se qui referebant. qui cum plures facti referrent, omnibus fere populis haud dubie approbantibus relationem ac prae se ferentibus quid decreturi essent, [9?] Dymaei ac Megalopolitani et quidam Argivorum, priusquam decretum fieret, consurrexerunt ac reliquerunt concilium neque mirante ullo nec improbante. [10] nam Megalopolitanos avorum memoria pulsos ab Lacedaemoniis restituerat in patriam Antigonus, et Dymaeis, captis nuper direptisque ab exercitu Romano, cum redimi eos, ubicumque servirent, Philippus iussisset, non libertatem modo sed etiam patriam reddiderat; [11] iam Argivi, praeterquam quod Macedonum reges ab se oriundos credunt, privatis etiam hospitiis familiarique amicitia plerique illigati Philippo erant. [12] ob haec concilio, quod inclinaverat ad Romanam societatem iubendam, excesserunt, veniaque iis huius secessionis fuit et magnis et recentibus obligatis beneficiis.
