Your fire is cold to us, and the catapults painless, and your violence powerless. 11.27.

Let us not fear him who thinks he is killing us 13.15. for great is the struggle of the soul and the danger of eternal torment lying before those who transgress the commandment of God.

7. Plutarch, Numa Pompilius, 20.3 (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

20.3. For not only was the Roman people softened and charmed by the righteousness and mildness of their king, but also the cities round about, as if some cooling breeze or salubrious wind were wafted upon them from Rome, began to experience a change of temper, and all of them were filled with longing desire to have good government, to be at peace, to till the earth, to rear their children in quiet, and to worship the gods.
