Cicero, Letters (somewhere around 44 and 43 ) Cicero to Atticus (Ad Att. 14.10) Apr. 19, 44 B.C. ....Octavius came to Naples on April 18...[and it is accounted for that] he will acknowledge his legacy. However, as you compose, that will be an incredible squabble with Antony!... Cicero to Atticus (Ad Att. 15.2) Jun. 9/10, 44 B.C. ....In Octavian, as I have seen obviously, there is sufficient intrinsic [ability], enough soul; and he appears, towards our "heroes" to be as great as we would wish. Be that as it may, the amount we must trust his age, his name, his legacy, his bringing up—this is an awesome subject for arranging. His dad in-law thinks [that Octavian is to be trusted] not at all....But by and by, he must be sustained, and, if nothing else, from Antony disengaged....

Slide 15

Brutus to Atticus (Ad Brut. 17) early June, 43 B.C. “You keep in touch with me that Cicero wonders, on the grounds that I absolutely never demonstrate endorsement of his deeds: since you request it of me, Under your impulse I might compose what I feel…I don\'t realize what to keep in touch with you aside from this one thing: the kid\'s insatiability and Lawlessness have preferably been energized than stifled by Cicero, and he has given over to him such an awesome measure of liberality, that he can\'t limit himself from pernicious remarks.... He gloats to me that he has managed war against Antony while he himself was in regular citizen attire, our Cicero does: however what great is this to me, if the prize requested for Antony\'s Suppression is somebody\'s progression to Antony\'s place , and if the vindicator of that underhanded stands forward the instigator of another having a foundation”

Slide 16

Brutus to Atticus (Ad Brut. 17) early June, 43 B.C. what\'s more, roots which are more profound? It is safe to say that we are so to endure it, in light of the fact that these things which he now does are in trepidation of control or [because they are in fear] of a dominator or [because they are in fear] of Antony? I myself however have no appreciation for a man who, while not serve an infuriated [dominator], does not deplore the matter [of domination] itself....Let Octavius consequently call Cicero "father,“ allude all things to him, express gratitude toward him; in any case this will get to be evident: his words are as opposed to what he is truly doing....For what is it to our reason that Antony is vanquished, in the event that he has been vanquished so that which he held untruths open for another?.... I Myself certainly...will take up arms against the thing itself, that is against sovereignty and exceptional preeminent orders and control and force which would wish itself to be over the laws....

In spite of the fact that Antonius attempted to make terms at the eleventh hour, Augustus constrained him to submit suicide, and saw his body. He enormously craved to spare Cleopatra alive for his triumph, and even had Psylli conveyed to her, to suck the toxic substance from her injury, since it was felt that she kicked the bucket from the chomp of an asp.He permitted them both the honor of entombment, and in the same tomb, giving requests that the sepulcher which they had started ought to be done. The youthful Antonius, the senior of Fulvia\'s two children, he dragged from the picture of the Deified Julius, to which he had fled after numerous vain pleas, and slew him.
