    I'm getting and into Cicero This is from his earlier career The amount of research he did in situ is conscientious to say the least He didn't actually deliver this oration because Verres had fled with his spoils into exile where Antony would pick him off as he would Cicero himself in the proscriptions Ironic? That he didn't may account for its exhaustiveness It's not however exhaustng to read and it contains O tempora O s which my uotations book says comes from In Catilinam I didn't have a latin version of that to check The translation here is good what an age we live in What an age it was too because Verres wasn't the only corrupt aristo making his fortune by plundering provinces
