    Website Source Froude, James Anthony. Caesar tells Decius that his wife had a dream in which she saw his statue spouting blood and many smiling Romans bathing in it. The crowd beings to get restless, insisting that he read the will and shouting that the conspirators were traitors and murderers. He appoints Crassus over Samarobriva and assigns him a legion, because he was leaving there the baggage of the army, the hostages of the states, the public documents, and all the corn, which he had conveyed thither for passing the winter. Of all these, the Belgae are the bravest, because they are furthest from the civilization and refinement of [our] Province, and merchants least frequently resort to them, and import those things which tend to effeminate the mind; and they are the nearest to the Germans, who dwell beyond the Rhinewith whom they are continually waging war; for which reason the Helvetii also surpass the rest of the Gauls in valor, as they contend with the Germans in almost daily battles, when they either repel them from their own territories, or themselves wage war on their frontiers. Brutus agrees, overriding Cassius' misgivings about allowing Antony to speak.

    Fabius, without delaying a moment, meets him on the march with his legion, as he had been commanded. Pompey, to beg that he would spare him and his soldiers. Chapter 12 The interior portion of Britain is inhabited by those of whom they say that it is handed down by tradition that they were born in the island itself: the maritime portion by those who had passed over from the country of the Belgae for the purpose of plunder and making war; almost all of whom are called by the names of those states from which being sprung they went thither, and having waged war, continued there and began to cultivate the lands. How did Julius Caesar come to power? By prearrangement, Brutus and the other conspirators arrive to accompany Caesar, hoping to fend off any possible warnings until they have him totally in their power at the Senate.

    In the midst of all the chaos, he got his way. He was the oldest of eight children and he lived in a wealthy family. En route he was captured by pirates one of the symptoms of the anarchy into which the Roman nobility had allowed the Mediterranean world to fall. He offers great rewards for those who should kill him: he sends up the cohorts as a relief to the horse. Brutus has instead punished the man for accepting bribes, an act which provided one of the reason's for Caesar's murder.
