Example text

By the end of the month he had raised 3,000 men from the district round Capua (where the newly founded colonies of Calatia and Casilinum consisted of Caesar's old Seventh and Eighth legions), and proposed to go inland into Samnium in search of more volunteers. His money was very tempting. He paid 500 denarii on the spot—more than two years' ordinary pay—and promised 2,000 in the event of success in the forthcoming struggle. Meanwhile things had not been going well for Antony. At Suessa Aurunca, en route for Brundisium, he put to death some soldiers who were being held under arrest—probably the men accused of planning to assassinate him.

But once again the intervention of the soldiery transformed everything.
