Cicero, Brutus, 14-15


turn ille: Nempe eum dicis dicis vulg. : dices codd. , inquit, quo iste omnem rerum rerum L : r. Romanarum Bake : r. nostrarum Jahn memoriam breviter et, ut mihi quidem visum est, perdiligenter complexus est ? Istum ipsum, inquam, Brute, dico librum mihi saluti fuisse. tum Atticus: Optatissimum mihi mihi quidem est F : mihi est quidem est G : quidem mihi est OB1M : quidem mihi H : mihi quidem opt. est B : mihi, inquit, est Stangl quidem est quod dicis; sed quid tandem habuit liber iste quod tibi aut novum aut tanto usui posset esse esse posset O ?You mean," said he, "his short, and, I think, very accurate Abridgment of Universal History.""The very same," said I; "for that little treatise has absolutely saved me.""I am heartily glad of it," said Atticus; "but what could you discover in it which was either new to you, or so wonderfully beneficial as you pretend?


ille vero et nova, inquam, mihi quidem multa et eam utilitatem et eam attulit Mahly : attulit et eam Gud. 38 quam requirebam, ut explicatis ordinibus temporum uno in conspectu omnia viderem. Quae quae Eberhard : qua L : quo B1H1 vetus cum studiose tractare coepissem, ipsa mihi tractatio litterarum salutaris fuit admonuitque, Pomponi, ut a te ipso sumerem aliquid ad me reficiendum teque remunerandum si non pari, at grato tamen munere: quamquam illud Hesiodium laudatur a doctis, quod eadem mensura reddere iubet quae acceperis aut etiam cumulatiore, si possis.It certainly furnished many hints," said I, "which were entirely new to me: and the exact order of time which you observed through the whole, gave me the opportunity I had long wished for, of beholding the history of all nations in one regular and comprehensive view. The attentive perusal of it proved an excellent remedy for my sorrows, and led me to think of attempting something on your own plan, partly to amuse myself, and partly to return your favour, by a grateful, though not an equal acknowledgment. We are commanded, it is true, in that precept of Hesiod, so much admired by the learned, to return with the same measure we have received; or, if possible, with a larger.

2.59. Haec cum ille dixisset, 'quid est,' inquit 'Catule?' Caesar; 'ubi sunt, qui Antonium Graece negant scire? Quot historicos nominavit! Quam scienter, quam proprie de uno quoque dixit!'
