Reading: Tribunus, p. 95

Treachery of Ambiorix
(Ecce Scriptores Romani, p. 75 ff.)
Ambiorix, pretending to be a friend of the Romans, had told them that a large force of German mercenaries were on their way to attack the camp. Cotta and Sabinus, the commanders, decided that the best course of action would be to abandon the camp and to join up with a neighbouring legion. They are ambushed as they leave the camp, and Cotta is injured. Sabinius asks to talk with Ambiorix, to ask him to spare the Romans.
Sabinus, quos in praesentia tribunos circum se habebat, et primorum ordinum centuriones, se sequi iubet. et, cum proprius Ambiorigem accessisset, iussus arma abicere, imperatum facit, suisque ut idem faciant, imperat. interim, dum de condicionibus inter se agunt, longiorque consulto ab Ambiorige instituitur sermo, paulatim cicrumventus interficitur.
tum vero suo more victoriam conclamant atque ululatum tollunt; impetuque in nostros facto, ordines perturbant. ibi L. Cotta pugnans interficitur cum maxima parte militum. reliqui se in castra recipient unde erant egressi: ex quibus L. Petrosidius aquilifer, cum magna multitudine hostium premeretur, aquilam intra vallum proiecit, ipse pro castris fortissime pugnans occiditur. ille aegre ad noctem oppugnationem sustinent; noctu ad unum omnes, desperate salute, se ipsi interficiunt. pauci ex proelio elapsi, incertis itineribus per silvas ad T. Labienum legatum in hibernia perveniunt atque eum de rebus gestis certiorem faciunt.

Sadly, I can’t remember what I set for homework, but it would do no harm to learn the vocabulary on page 104 (again)
