4. Q. Considius, a senator and one of the Judices, is praised by Cicero for his integrity and uprightness as a judge both in B. C. 70 (in Verr. 1.7) and in B. C. 66. (Pro Cluent. 38.) Considius is spoken of as quite an old man in Caesar's consulship, B. C. 59, and it is related of him, that when very few senators came to the house, on one occasion, he told Caesar, that the reason of their absence was their fear of his arms and soldiers ; and that when Caesar thereupon asked him why he also did not stop at home, he replied, that old age had deprived him of all fear. (Plut. Caes. 14 ; Cic. Att. 2.24.)
