9. ceterum animus ducis rei maiori, Antio, imminebat: id caput Volscorum, eam fuisse originem proximi belli. [2] sed quia nisi magno apparatu, tormentis machinisque, tam valida urbs capi non poterat, relicto ad exercitum collega Romam est profectus, [p. 224] ut senatum ad excidendum Antium hortaretur. [3] inter1 sermonem eiuscredo rem Antiatem diuturniorem manere dis cordi fuisselegati ab Nepete ac Sutrio auxilium adversus Etruscos petentes veniunt, brevem occasionem esse ferendi auxilii memorantes. eo vim Camilli ab Antio fortuna avertit. [4] namque cum ea loca opposita Etruriae et velut claustra inde portaeque essent, et illis occupandi ea cum quid novi molirentur, et Romanis reciperandi tuendique cura erat. [5] igitur senatui cum Camillo agi placuit ut omisso Antio bellum Etruscum susciperet; legiones urbanae quibus Quinctius praefuerat ei decernuntur. [6] quamquam expertum exercitum adsuetumque imperio qui in Volscis erat mallet, nihil recusavit; Valerium tantummodo imperii socium depoposcit. Quinctius Horatiusque successores Valerio in Volscos missi.

[7] profecti ab urbe Sutrium Furius et Valerius partem oppidi iam captam ab Etruscis invenere, ex parte altera intersaeptis itineribus aegre oppidanos vim hostium ab se arcentes. [8] cum Romani auxilii adventus tum Camilli nomen celeberrimum apud hostes sociosque et in praesentia rem inclinatam sustinuit et spatium ad opem ferendam dedit. [9] itaque diviso exercitu Camillus collegam in eam [p. 226] partem circumductis copiis quam hostes tenebant2 moenia adgredi iubet, non tam a spe3 scalis capi urbem posse quam ut aversis eo hostibus et oppidanis iam pugnando fessis laxaretur labor et ipse spatium intrandi sine certamine moenia haberet. [10] quod cum simul utrimque factum esset ancepsque terror Etruscos circumstaret, et moenia summa vi oppugnari et intra moenia esse hostem viderent, porta [11?] se quae una forte non obsidebatur trepidi uno agmine eiecere. magna caedes fugientium et in urbe et per agros est facta. plures a Furianis intra moenia caesi; Valeriani expeditiores ad persequendum4 fuere, nec ante noctem, quae conspectum ademit, finem caedendi fecere.

[12] Sutrio recepto restitutoque sociis Nepete exercitus ductus, quod per deditionem acceptum iam totum Etrusci habebant.
