2.221-33 Sulla

スッラの顕彰碑文 


221-2
"By these deeds, has Sulla deserved to be called the saviour of the republic ; by these deeds, to be called felix ; by these deeds, to raise a tomb for himself in the middle of the Campus?


223-6
"These things remain to be suffered again ; it is to be passed through this sequence of the war ; this result is waiting for the civil war. Fears anticipate greater (=worse) (calamities), and many people are assembling for the battles at the cost of far greater damage to mankind, though.


227-9
"The greatest reward of the battles for the exiles Marii (= Marius and his families) was Rome recovered, and the victory presented to Sulla no more than removing thoroughly the factions he hated.


230-3
"Fortuna, you summon them (= Pompey and Caesar) to another place (=destination), and those who have been in power for a long time have joined the battle. Neither would begin the civil war, if he were content with what Sulla was content."
So the old man sadly lamented, remembering the past and fearing the future.
