The Orations of Marcus Tullius Cicero, Vol. 4 free pdf Excerpt from The Orations of Marcus Tullius Cicero, Vol. 4 When Julius, or, as he is usually culled by Cicero, Caius Caesar was slain on the 15th of March, A. U. C. 710, B. C. 44, Marcus Antonius was his colleague in the consulship- and he, being afraid that the conspirators might murder him too, (and it is said that they had debated among themselves whether they would or no, ) concealed himself on that day, and fortified his house- till perceiving that nothing was intended against him, he ventured to appear in public the day following. Lepidus was in the suburbs of Rome with a regular army, ready to depart for the government of Spain, which had been assigned to him with a part of Gaul. In the night, after Caesar's death, he occupied the forum with his troops, and thought of making himself master of the city, but Antonius dissuaded him from that idea, and won him over to his views by giving his daughter in marriage to Lepidus's son, and by assisting him to seize on the office of Pontifex Maximus, which was vacant by Caesar's death. To the conspirators he professed friendship, sent his son among them as a hostage of his sincerity, and so deluded them, that Brutus supped with Lepidus, and Cassius with Antonius. By these means he got them to consent to his pausing a decree for the confirmation of all Caesar's acts, without describing or naming them more precisely. At last, on the occasion of Cesar's public funeral, he contrived so to inflame the populace against the conspirators, that Brutus and Cassius had some difficulty in defending their houses and their lives- and he gradually alarmed them so much, and worked so cunningly on their fears, that they all quitted Rome. Cicero also left Home, disapproving greatly of the vacillation and want of purpose in the conspirators. On the first of June Antonius assembled the senate to deliberate on the affairs of the republic, and in the interval visited all parts of Italy.
