Elated by this victory, Ambiorix marches immediately
with his cavalry to the Aduatuci
, who bordered on his kingdom; he
halts neither day nor night, and orders the infantry to follow him closely.
Having related the exploit and roused the Aduatuci
, the next day he
arrived among the Nervii, and entreats "that they should not throw
away the opportunity of liberating themselves forever and of punishing the Romans for those wrongs which they had received from
them;" [he tells them] "that two lieutenants have been slain, and that a large
portion of the army has perished; that it was not a matter of difficulty for the
legion which was wintering with Cicero to be cut off,
when suddenly assaulted; he declares himself ready to cooperate in that design.
He easily gains over the Nervii by this speech.
