Cogidubnus: You, not the slave, are the liar.

You dismissed me? I am innocent. Salv...Salvius: King Cogidubnus, what have you done? You, who are a barbarian, dare to dismiss the Roman diviner? You dare too much! Although you have obtained the highest honors from us, you have never been satisfied. You have annoyed us for a long time. Now and finally, with the armed men having entered here, you are openly displaying your treachery. Emperor Domitian, having endured for a long time from your arrogance, recently sent a letter to me.

Nobody is more treacherous than Romans. I have been very stupid, because I trusted the Romans until now. I betrayed my friends Ilost my kingdom. Once, having been deceived by Romans, I accepted the decorations and honorsof the Romans. Today these decorations, having been given to me by the Romans, I throw on the ground. Salvius, send a message to that Emperor (of yours), "We finally have conquered
Cogidubnus. Britain is conquered."The old man, having said this, left slowly through the door.
