The Senate Suspicious of Eumenes and Antiochus

Rome. . . .
A large number of embassies having come to
Rome, the Senate gave a reply to Attalus and Athenaeus. For
Prusias, not content with earnestly pressing his accusations himself against Eumenes and Attalus, had also instigated the Gauls
and Selgians (in Pisidia), and many others in Asia, to adopt
the same policy; consequently king Eumenes had sent his
brothers to defend him against the accusations thus brought.
On their admission to the Senate they were thought to have
made a satisfactory defence against all accusers; and finally
returned to Asia, after not only rebutting the accusations,
but with marks of special honour. The Senate, however, did
not altogether cease to be suspicious of Eumenes and Antiochus.
They sent Gaius Sulpicius and Manius Sergius as envoys to
investigate the state of Greece; to decide the question of
territory that had arisen between Megalopolis and the Lacedaemonians; but, above all, to give attention to the proceedings
of Antiochus and Eumenes, and to discover whether any
warlike preparations were being made by either of them, or any
combination being formed between them against Rome. . . .
