MARCUS TULLIUS CICERO. SECTION IX. A. Urb. 709, Cic. 63. Cess. M. Antonius. P. Cornelius Dolabella. Cicero was present at the death of Caesar in the Senate; where he had the pleasure, he tells us, to see the tyrant perish as he deserved. By this accident he was freed at once from all subjection to a superiour, and all the uneasiness and indignity of managing a power which every moment could oppress him. He was now, without competition, the first citizen in Rome; the first in that credit and authority both with the senate and people, which illustrious merit and services will necessarily give in a free city. The conspirators considered him as such, and reckoned upon him as their sure friend: for they had no sooner finished their work, than Brutus, lifting up his bloody dagger, called out upon him by name, to congra Quid mihi attulerit ista domini mutatio, praeter laetitiara, quanoculis cepi, justo interitu Tyranni? Ad Att. 14. 14. About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.
