hic miramur hunc hominem tantum excellere ceteris, cuius legiones sic in Asiam pervenerint, ut non modo manus tanti exercitus, sed ne vestigium quidem cuiquam pacato nocuisse dicatur?
do we wonder that this man excels so much over others, whose legions came into Asia in such a way that not only the might of such a great army, but not even a footprint is said to have harmed anyone who had suffered?

iam vero quem ad modum milites hibernent, cotidie sermones ac litterae perferentur.
but now everyday rumours and letters are brought as to how the soldiers spend the winter.

non modo ut sumptum faciat in militem nemini vis adfertur, se ne cupienti quidem cuiquam permittitur.
not only is no force brought against anyone to spend money on the soldier, but no one is permitted to do so, not even if he wishes.
3 of 5
hiemis enim, non avaritiae perfugium maiores nostri in sociorum atque amicorum tectis esse voluerunt.
for our ancestors wanted shelter in the houses of our allies and friends to be shelter from the winter, not from avarice.
