ABout the Language PT. C: FugitivusSalvius consillium cognoscitThe next day, when Quintus and Dumnorix were hurrying to the furthest parts of the island, soldiers were looking through the town for Dumnorix in vain. At last the thing hadbeen announced to Salvius. That man, when he had found out about the escape of
Dumnorix, was raging violently; he ordered all the soldiers, who had guarded Dumnorix,to give punishments. He looked for Quintus; when he had been able to find him nowhere also, he summoned Belimicus, the chieftain of the Cantianci."Belimicus," he said, "That Dumnorix escaped from my hands, Quintus Caecilius is also not here.
