Seite 260 - Per ea tempora Mithridates, Ponticus rex, vir neque silendus neque dicendus sine cura, bello acerrimus, virtute eximius, aliquando fortuna, semper animo maximus, consiliis dux, miles manu, odio in Romanos Hannibal...
Seite 179 - was entirely given up to punish ment or to plunder."i 99 1- Capile poenas solvit. According to Plutarch, Turpilius and his family had long been retainers to that of Metellus, and he attended him in this war in the character of master of the artificers. Marius, who was one of the council of war that tried him, was not only himself severe against him, but stirred up most of the other judges ; so that it was carried against the opinion of Metellus, and it was much against his will that he passed upon...
Seite 110 - ... perditum eant. Bene et composite C. Caesar paullo ante in hoc ordine de vita et morte disseruit, credo, falsa existumans ea, quae de inferís memorantur, divorso itinere malos a bonis loca tetra, inculta, foeda atque formidolosa habere.
