27. dum haec in Illyrico geruntur, Paulus ante adventum decem legatorum Q. Maximum filium iam ab Roma regressum ad Aeginium et Agassas diripiendas mittit, [2] Agassas, quod, cum Marcio consuli tradidissent urbem petita ultro societate Romana, defecerant rursus ad Persea; Aeginiensium novum crimen erat: [3] famae de victoria Romanorum fidem non habentes in quosdam militum urbem ingressos hostiliter1 saevierant. [4] ad Aeniorum quoque urbem diripiendam L. Postumium misit, quod pertinacius quam finitimae civitates in armis fuerant.

[5] autumni fere tempus erat; cuius temporis initio ad circumeundam Graeciam visendaque, quae2 nobilitata fama maiora auribus accepta sunt quam oculis noscuntur, uti3 statuit. [6] praeposito castris C. Sulpicio Gallo profectus cum haud magno comitatu, tegentibus latera Scipione filio et Athenaeo, Eumenis regis fratre, per Thessaliam Delphos petit, [p. 340] inclutum oraculum. [7] ubi sacrificio Apollini facto inchoatas4 in vestibulo columnas, quibus imposituri statuas regis Persei fuerant, suis statuis victor destinavit. lebadiae quoque templum Iovis Trophonii adit; [8] ibi cum vidisset os specus, per quod oraculo utentes sciscitatum deos descendunt, sacrificio Iovi Hercynnaeque facto, quorum ibi templum est, Chalcidem ad spectaculum Euripi Euboeaeque, tantae5 insulae, ponte continenti iunctae descendit. [9] a Chalcide Aulidem traicit, trium milium spatio distantem, portum inclutum statione quondam mille navium Agamemnoniae classis, Dianaeque templum, ubi navibus cursum ad Troiam filia victima aris admota rex ille regum petiit. [10] inde Oropum6 Atticae ventum est, ubi pro deo vates antiquus7 colitur templumque vetustum est fontibus rivisque circa amoenum; [11] athenas inde, plenas quidem et ipsas vetustae8 famae, multa tamen visenda habentis, arcem, portus, muros Piraeum urbi iungentis, navalia, monumenta9 magnorum imperatorum, simulacra [p. 342] deorum hominumque, omni genere et materiae et10 artium insignia.
