Scaurus a few months earlier, was on 54 ASCONIVS T. Munatius Plancus, fra ter L. Planci oratoris, et Q. Pompeius Rufus, Sullae dictatoris ex filia nepos, tribuni (33) plebis accurrerunt: eisque hortantibus vulgus imperitum corpus nudum ac calcatum, sicut in lecto erat positum, ut vulnera vid e ri possent in forum detulit et in rostris posuit. Ibi pro contione Plancus et Pompeius qui competitoribus Milonis studebant invidiam Miloni fecerunt. Populus duce Sex. Clodio scriba corpus P. Clodi in curiam intulit cremavitque subselliis et tribunalibus et mensis et codicibus librariorum; quo igne et ipsa quoque curia fla gra vit, et item Porcia basilica quae erat ei iuncta ambusta est.

PAVLO POST [§65] Instant post hominum memoriam apparatissimi m agnificentissim ique ludi, quales non (16) modo numquam fu eru n t, sed ne quo modo fie r i quidem posthac possint possum ullo pacto suspicari. Cn. Pompeii ludos significat quibus theatrum a se factum dedicavit, quibus ludis elephantorum pugnam primus omnium dedit in Circo. VER. A NOVIS.

Haec verba quibus Cicero nunc utitur, ac neque, earn videntur habere naturam ut semel poni non soleant; quia est coniunctio disiunctiva et semper postulat ut rursus inferatur neque, ut cum dicimus neque hoc neque illud. Quo autem casu acciderit quave ratione ut hoc loco Cicero hoc verbo ita usus sit, praesertim cum adiecerit illam appositionem, ut non intulerit postea alterum, neque perspicere potui et attendendum esse valde puto: moveor enim mérita v iri auctoritate. Neque ignoro aliquando hoc verbum neque vel semel poni, ut in eadem hac oratione ante ipse Cicero posuit: Sic, inquam, se, iudices, res habet; neque hoc a me novum disputatur sed quaesitum ab aliis est.
