Cicero- De Imperio Chapters 31

HideShow resource information
Testes nunc vero iam omnes orae atque omnes exterae gentes ad nationes
Now indeed, all the coasts and all the foreign nations and people
1 of 6
dedique maria omnia *** universa, tum in singulis oris omnes sinus at portus
and finally all the seas, not only together, but also in individual coasts and all the bays and harbours, are my witnesses
2 of 6
Quis enim toto mari locus per hos annos aut tam firmum habuit praesidium ut tutus esset
For what sort of place through these years had in the whole of the sea such strong protection so as to be safe
3 of 6
aut tam fuit abditus ut lateret? Quis navigavit qui non se aut mortis aut servitutis periculo committeret, *** aut hieme aut referto praedonum mari navigaret?
or was so secret as to lie hidden? Who is there who sailed and not committed himself to the danger of death or slavery, since he must sail either in winter or in seas manifested with pirates?
4 of 6
Hoc tantum bellum, tam turpe, tam vetus, tam late divisor atque dispersum, quis umquam arbitraretur aut ab omnibus imperatoribus uno anno
Who would have ever thought that such a war as this, so ugly, so old, divided and spread so far and wide, could be finished by all the generals in one year
5 of 6
aut omnibus annis ab uno imperatore confici posse?
or by one general in all his years?
