M. Tulli Ciceronis Pro Publio Sestio free pdf Excerpt from M. Tulli Ciceronis Pro Publio Sestio: Oratio Ad Iudices Clodius fell into the hands of the pirates, who however released him without ransom through fear of Pompeius. It was on this occasion that Ptolemaeus, the rich king of Cyprus, gave him mortal offence by offering only two talents as his ransom: for which niggardliness he paid dearly, for when Clodius became tribune in B.C. 58, he brought forward a law to deprive him of his kingdom and reduce Cyprus to a Roman province. On his return to Rome in B.C. 65 he arraigned Catilina for extortion (repetundarum) in his government of the province of Africa: but Catilina bribed his accuser and judge and escaped. 6. In private life Clodius had already been guilty of all sorts of excesses, and at the close of B.C. 62, the year of his quaestorship, he committed an act of sacrilege, which is especially memorable because it gave rise to that bitter enmity between himself and Cicero, which was fraught with such important consequences to both and to Rome itself. In the prosecution of an intrigue with Caesar's wife Pompeia, he ventured to disguise himself as a dancing-girl and steal into Caesar's official residence in the Sacra Via, at the time when the mysteries of the Bona Dea, at which the presence of men was strictly forbidden, were being celebrated there- but he was detected in the act.
