[4] By this accusation Marcius is said to have been more disturbed than by all the rest. For he had not expected it, and was not ready at once with an answer which would satisfy the people, but began to praise those who had made the campaign, whereupon he was clamorously interrupted by those who had not made it, and they were the more numerous. In the end, therefore, the vote was taken by tribes, and a majority of three condemned him1 The penalty assigned was perpetual banishment.

1 Dionysius Hal. (vii. 64) says that nine of the twenty-one tribes voted to acquit Marcius.
