When Crassus was about to set out for Syria, wishing that Cicero should be a friend rather than an enemy, he said to him in a friendly manner that he wished to dine with him; and Cicero readily received him into his house. But a few days afterwards, when some friends interceded with him for Vatinius, saying that the man sought reconciliation and friendship (for he was an enemy), ‘It surely cannot be,’ said Cicero, ‘that Vatinius also wishes to dine with me.’ Such, then, was his treatment of Crassus.
