6. [p. 4010]cum in contionem et consules processissent et res a perpetuis orationibus in altercationem uertisset, interroganti tribuno cur plebeium consulem fieri non oporteret, [2] ut fortasse uere, sic parum utiliter <alter> in praesens certamen respondit, quod nemo plebeius auspicia haberet, ideoque decemuiros conubium diremisse ne incerta prole auspicia turbarentur. [3] plebes ad id maxime indignatione exarsit, quod auspicari, tamquam inuisi dis immortalibus, negarentur posse; nec ante finis contentionum fuit, cum et tribunum acerrimum auctorem plebes nacta esset et ipsa cum eo pertinacia certaret, quam uicti tandem patres ut de conubio ferretur concessere, [4] ita maxime rati contentionem de plebeiis consulibus tribunos aut totam deposituros aut post bellum dilaturos esse, contentamque interim conubio plebem paratam dilectui fore. [5] cum Canuleius uictoria de patribus et plebis fauore ingens esset, accensi alii tribuni ad certamen pro rogatione sua summa ui pugnant et crescente in dies fama belli dilectum impediunt. [6] consules, cum per senatum intercedentibus tribunis nihil agi posset, concilia principum domi habebant. apparebat aut hostibus aut ciuibus de uictoria concedendum esse. [7] [p. 4011]soli ex consularibus Ualerius atque Horatius non intererant consiliis. C. Claudi sententia consules armabat in tribunos, Quinctiorum Cincinnatique et Capitolini sententiae abhorrebant a caede uiolandisque quos foedere icto cum plebe sacrosanctos accepissent. [8] per haec consilia eo deducta est res, ut tribunos militum consulari potestate promisce ex patribus ac plebe creari sinerent, de consulibus creandis nihil mutaretur; eoque contenti tribuni, contenta plebs fuit. [9] comitia tribunis consulari potestate tribus creandis indicuntur. quibus indictis, extemplo quicumque aliquid seditiose dixerat aut fecerat unquam, maxime tribunicii, et prensare homines et concursare toto foro candidati coepere, [10] ut patricios desperatio primo inritata plebe apiscendi honoris, deinde indignatio, si cum his gerendus esset honos, deterreret. postremo coacti tamen a primoribus petiere, ne cessisse possessione rei publicae uiderentur. [11] euentus eorum comitiorum docuit alios animos in contentione libertatis dignitatisque, alios secundum deposita certamina incorrupto iudicio esse; tribunos enim omnes patricios creauit populus, contentus eo quod ratio habita plebeiorum esset. [12] hanc modestiam aequitatemque et altitudinem animi ubi nunc in uno inueneris, quae tum populi uniuersi fuit?
