iam quantum consilio, quantum dicendi gravitate et copia valeat, in quo ipso inest quaedam dignitas imperatoriae, vos, Quirites, hoc ipso ex loco saepe cognovistis.
now how much he is strong in planning, how much in authority and fluency of public speaking, in which very skill the dignity of a general exists, you, Romans, have often found out in this very place.
1 of 5
fidem vero eius quantam inter socios existimari putatis, quam hostes omnes omnium generum sancitissimam iudicarint?
but how great do you think his good faith is estimated among the allies, good faith which all enemies of all peoples have judged most inviolable?
2 of 5
humanitate iam tanta est, ut difficile dictu sit, utrum hostes magis virtutem eius pugnantes timuerint an mansuetudinem victi dilexerint.
he has such great humanity that it is difficult to say, whether the enemy feared his valour more when fighting against him, or loved his clemency more when they had been conquered by him.
3 of 5
et quisquam dubitabit quin huic hoc tantum bellum permittendum sit, qui ad omnia nostrae memoriae bella conficienda divino quodam consilio natus esse videatur?
and who will doubt that such a great war should be entrusted to him, who seems to have been born by some divine plan for ending all wars within our memory?
