Julius Caesar, Chapter 69: Military genius.
Return to index
They did not mutiny once during the ten years of the Gallic war; in the Civil wars they did so now and then, but quickly resumed their duty, not so much owing to any indulgence of their general as to his authority. For he [Note 1] never gave way to them when they were insubordinate, but always boldly faced them, discharging the entire ninth legion in disgrace before Placentia, though Pompey was still in the field, reinstating them unwillingly and only after many abject entreaties, and insisting on punishing the ringleaders. |
Note 1: he = Julius Caesar
|Seditionem per decem annos Gallicis bellis nullam omnino mouerunt, ciuilibus aliquas, sed ut celeriter ad officium redierint, nec tam indulgentia ducis quam auctoritate. non enim cessit umquam tumultuantibus atque etiam obuiam semper iit; et nonam quidem legionem apud Placentiam, quanquam in armis adhuc Pompeius esset, totam cum ignominia missam fecit aegreque post multas et supplicis preces, nec nisi exacta de sontibus poena, restituit.|
