Bithyniae: this territory had been bequeathed to the Roman republic by Nicomedes III, B.C. 74. Ariobarzanis: king of Cappadocia, which had been overrun by Mithridates. Lucullum: Lucullus was related to both branches of the family of Metellus, and had married Clodia, sister of the notorious Publius Clodius. It was chiefly this mischievous demagogue, who was serving as one of his officers, that stirred up the dissensions and mutinies which robbed Lucullus of the fruits of his victories. discedere, is on the point of withdrawing. huic qui successerit, his successor, Glabrio. non satis paratum, not adequately furnished—an understatement: Glabrio had shown himself thoroughly incompetent, but Cicero was on good terms with him. This was the Glabrio who had presided over the court in the case of Verres. socus, i.e. Asiatics. civibus, Romans engaged in business in Asia. imperatorem (in pred. appos. with unum), as commander.

potest (emphatic position), etc., it may be said, i.e. in answer to the preceding arguments: of course, in order to justify the wisdom of so exceptional a measure as the Manilian Law, it was necessary to show that the war was of sufficient gravity to require the appointment of Pompey. Observe the skillful transition from the genus of the war to its magnitudo. belli genus, i.e. the war, in its character. elaborandum est: use the personal construction in translating. ornatas, equipped; instructas, organised. obsessam, invested; oppugnatam, attacked (by the active operations of siege): the verb besiege includes both ideas. This was B.C. 74.

tamen, i.e. though the defeat was so disastrous. potuisset: subj. of characteristic; the cont. to fact idea which is also contained in the word would not have required the subj.; § 522, a (311, c); B. 304,3; G. 597, a.3, a; H. 583 (511, I, N.1); H-B. 582, 3,a. vestro jussu, i.e. by the Gabinian Law (see Introd., p. 66). imperi: the military imperium could be extended after the term of office by the Senate. The holder of a command thus extended (prorogatum) was called proconsul or propraetor. In this case Lucullus had now held command seven years, from B.C. 74. conjungant, etc.: this sums up the considerations already urged as to the magnitude of the war (from sect. 23). integrae, fresh (cf. p.76, ll.20, 21).

TRIBUNAL AURELIUM a tribunal, or platform, evidently named after some Aurelius, in the forum, which is mentioned four times by Cicero in connection with a levy of slaves in 58 B.C. (pro Sest. 34, in Pis. 11: pro tribunali Aurelii; de domo 54, post red. ad Quir. 13: in tribunali Aurelii). In two other passages Cicero speaks of gradus Aurelii, once in connection with the trial of C. Iunius in 74 B.C. (pro Clu. 93: gradus illi Aurelii tur novi quasi pro theatro illi iudicio aedificati videbantur; quos ubi accusator concitatis hominibus complerat, non modo dicendi ab reo, sed ne surgendi quidem potestas erat), and again in 59 B.C. (pro Flacc. 66: hoc nimirum est illud quod non longe a gradibus Aurelii haec causa dicitur). These gradus, being new (novi), were probably built by M. Aurelius Cotta, consul in that year (74), and as they were occupied by those in attendance upon the jury trials, gradus and tribunal probably belonged together. Either the terms were used without distinct
