[15] Historical parallels may however sometimes be related in full, as in the pro Milone1: “When a military tribune serving in the army of Gaius Marius, to whom he was related, made an assault upon the honour of a common soldier, the latter killed him; for the virtuous youth preferred to risk his life by slaying him to suffering such dishonour. And yet the great Marius acquitted him of all crime and let him go scot free.”

1 pro Mil. iv. 9.
