quo videtis, sc. eum esse.

ingratis civibus, that it is for ungrateful fellow-citizens that he has, etc.: the Latin, from its freedom in the use of emphatic position, is able to say this in a single clause.

se fecisse ut, etc., that he has succeeded in, etc.

tribus patrimonus: Milo was by birth a member of the Papian gens, but was adopted by his maternal grandfather, C. Annius. This accounts for two patrimonies; the third, Asconius thinks, was probably his mother's. The orator here makes a civic virtue out of Milo's lavish bribery.

ne . . . non conciliarit, that he has not won over: ยง 564 (331 f); B. 295, 2, a; G. 550, 2; 11.567, 2 (498, iii, N.2); H.-B. 502, 4.

ablaturum, shall tear away (i.e. the memory of them).
