About this title


This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 Excerpt: ...i. ut exsultare, etc. The 'ut' of consequence, not of purpose. a. veteres inimicitiae, 'a long-standing feud,' arising, it would § 17. seem, out of a family quarrel about property. See § 87 ad fin. The plural is usual in this word. Cp. §§ 55, 145; De Inv. II, §20--'si amicitiae, si inimicitiarum (causa).' The idea may be that of a continued course of hostility. Julius Caesar in his grammatical treatise 'De Analogia' laid down that 'inimicitiae' could only be used in the plural, like 'arma,' 'moenia,' and 'comitia' (Aul. Gell. XIX. 8). Landgraf however points to the sing, in a philosophical sense in Tusc. IV, § 16, and Aulus Gellius quotes it from Ennius. b. alterum alterum. The first' alteram ' refers to Titus Roscius Magnus, upon whose presence on the accusers' benches Cicero is repeatedly harping (§§ 84, 87, 95, 104), the second to Titus Roscius Capito. For the fact of the latter being in possession of the farms ('praedia' or 'fundi') see §§ 21, 99. c. viveret, 'he would now be alive.' d. iniuria, 'without good reason.' Cp. §116.. plurimarum palmarum, 'who has won many a laurel.' Landgraf calls attention to the fact that the descriptive genitive in Latin takes the place of a compound adjective in Greek--' plurimarum palmarum = irovorcpijr. The words refer to Capito. For this sarcastic use of' palma,' cp. §§ 84, 100. f. vetus. Implying that he was an old hand at murder. The diminutive is used in a slightly jocular sense in Pro Q. § 29--'Alfenus interea Romae cum isto gladiatore vetulo quotidie pugnabat.' Cp. § 28 c. g. nobilis, ' well-known,' ' famous.' It is a term specially used of gladiators and public performers generally. In Pro Q. § 69 Cicero plays on the double meaning o...
