Britannia perdomita Britain Conquered, pages 53–54 Salvius is anxiously having a conversation with Memor. A slave, who has entered, runs to Memor. Slave: Master, King Cogidubnus is coming here. The king is wearing a toga praetexta and badges of office. He is leading a large number of armed men with him. Memor: Salvius: The king is leading armed men here? He is wearing a toga praetexta? Since he suspected us, Cogidubnus is seeking revenge. Memor, it is necessary for you to help me. For we are Romans, Cogidubnus (is) a barbarian. Cogidubnus enters. In his hands he is holding the letter which was written by Cephalus. Cogidubnus: Memor, you prepared that trap. You ordered Cephalus to obtain poison and kill me. But your freedman Cephalus revealed everything to me. Memor: Cogidubnus: Cogidubnus, what you are saying is absurd. Cephalus is dead. Cephalus was a very prudent man. He did not trust you. He obeyed you unwillingly. As soon as you gave those orders, Cephalus wrote a letter in which he revealed everything. A slave who had been sent by Cephalus brought the letter to me.
