et quoniam auctoritas quoque in bellis administrandis multum atque in imperio militari valet, certe nemini dubium est quin ea re idem ille imperator plurimum possit.
and since authority also prevails in managing wars, and in military power, it certainly is doubtful to nobody thatbecause of this thing that same general is the most able.

but who does not know that for managing wars it matters a lot, what the enemy, and the allies think about your generals, when we know that men in such great affairs are moved, either to despise or to fear, either to hate or to love,

opinione non minus et fama quam aliqua ratione certa commoveri?

quod igitur nomen umquam in orbe terrarum clarius fuit?
