itaque omnes nunc in iis locis Cn. Pompeium sicut aliquem non ex hac urbe missum, sed de caelo delapsum intuentur;
therefore, everyone in those places now looks at Gnaeus Pompeius not as someone sent out from this city but as someone fallen from heaven;
1 of 5
nunc denique incipiunt credere, fuisse homines Romanos hac quondam continentia, quod iam nationibus exteris incredibile ac falso memoriae proditum videbatur;
now furthermore they are beginning to believe that once there really were Roman men with that self control, which already was beginning to seem to foreign nations something incredible, falsly handed down to memory;
2 of 5
nunc imperii vestri splendor illis gentibus lucem adferre coepit;
now the splendour of your power is beginning to bring light to those peoples;
3 of 5
nunc intellegunt non sine causa maiores suos tum, *** ea temperantia magistratus habebamus, servire populo Romano quam imperare aliis maluisse.
now they understand that it was not without reason that their ancestors then, when we had magistrates with self control, preferred to be slaves to the Roman people to commanding others.
4 of 5
iam vero ita faciles aditus ad eum privatorum, ita liberae querimoniae de aliorum iniuriis esse dicuntur, ut is qui dignitate pricipibus excellit, facilitate infimis par esse videatur.
but now so easy is access of private individuals to him said to be, so free are the complaints about injustices from others said to be, that he who in dignity is superior to their leaders, in affability seems to be on par with the lowest.
