1 XXXVI. In the neighborhood of Arretium] “In agro Arretino.” Havercamp, and many of the old editions, have Reatino; "but," says Cortius, "if Catiline went the direct road to Fæsulæ, as is rendered extremely probable by his pretense that he was going to Marseilles, and by the assertion of Cicero, made the day after his departure, that he was on his way to join Manlius, we must certainly read Arretino." Arretium (now Arezzo) lay in his road to Fæsulæ; Reate was many miles out of it.
3 Notwithstanding the two decrees of the senate] “Duobus senati decretis.” I have translated it "the two decrees," with Rose. One of the two was that respecting the rewards mentioned in c. 30 ; the other was that spoken of in c. 36, allowing the followers of Catiline to lay down their arms before a certain day.
