31. dum inter Achaeos et tyrannum bellum erat, legati Romanorum circuire sociorum urbes solliciti, ne Aetoli partis alicuius animos ad Antiochum avertissent. [2] minimum operae in Achaeis adeundis consumpserunt, quos, quia Nabidi infesti erant, ad cetera quoque satis fidos censebant esse. [3] Athenas primum, inde Chalcidem, inde in Thessaliam iere, adlocutique concilio frequenti Thessalos Demetriadem iter flexere. eo Magnetum concilium indictum est. [4] accuratior ibi habenda oratio fuit, quod pars principum alienati Romanis totique Antiochi et [p. 90] Aetolorum erant, [5?] quia, cum reddi obsidem filium1 Philippo adlatum esset stipendiumque impositum remitti, inter cetera vana adlatum erat Demetriadem quoque ei reddituros Romanos esse. [6] id ne fieret, Eurylochus, princeps Magnetum, factionisque eius quidam omnia novari Aetolorum Antiochique adventu malebant. [7] adversus eos ita disserendum erat, ne timorem vanum iis demendo spes incisa Philippum abalienaret, in quo plus ad omnia momenti quam in Magnetibus esset. [8] illa tantum commemorata, cum totam Graeciam beneficio libertatis obnoxiam Romanis esse tum eam civitatem praecipue: [9] ibi enim non praesidium modo Macedonum fuisse, sed regiam exaedificatam, ut praesens semper in oculis habendus esset dominus; [10] ceterum nequiquam ea facta, si Aetoli Antiochum in Philippi regiam adducerent, et novus et incognitus pro vetere et experto habendus rex esset. [11] magnetarchen summum magistratum vocant; is tum Eurylochus erat, ac potestate ea fretus negavit dissimulandum sibi et Magnetibus esse, quae fama vulgata de reddenda Demetriade Philippo foret; [12] id ne fieret, omnia et conanda et audenda Magnetibus esse. et inter dicendi contentionem inconsultius evectus proiecit tum quoque specie liberam Demetriadem esse, re vera omnia ad nutum Romanorum fieri. [p. 92] [13?] sub hanc vocem2 fremitus variantis multitudinis3 fuit partim adsensum4 partim indignationem,5 dicere id ausum eum; Quinctius quidem adeo exarsit ira, ut manus6 ad caelum tendens deos testes ingrati ac perfidi animi Magnetum invocaret. [14] hac voce perterritis omnibus Zeno, ex principibus unus, magnae cum ob eleganter actam vitam auctoritatis, tum quod semper Romanorum haud dubie partis fuerat, [15?] ab Quinctio legatisque aliis flens petit ne7 unius amentiam civitati adsignarent; suo quemque periculo furere; Magnetas non libertatem modo, sed omnia quae hominibus sancta caraque sint T. Quinctio et populo Romano debere; nihil quemquam ab diis immortalibus precari posse, [16?] quod non Magnetes ab illis haberent, et in corpora sua citius per furorem saevituros quam ut Romanam amicitiam violarent.
