Cicero, Pro Roscio Amerino 35

 

35

Tres sunt res, quantum ego existimare possum, quae obstent hoc tempore Sex. Roscio, crimen adversariorum et audacia et potentia. Criminis confictionem accusator Erucius suscepit, audaciae partes Roscii sibi poposcerunt, Chrysogonus autem, is qui plurimum potest, potentia pugnat. De hisce omnibus rebus me dicere oportere intellego.

35

There are three things, as far as I can see, which at this time stand in the way of Sextus Roscius: the charge from his adversaries, their audacity, and their power. As teh accuser Erucius has taken on the fiction of this charge,  the Roscii have demanded for themselves the parts concerned with audacity; but Chrysogonus, who is most capable, fights with power. About all of these matters I understand that I must speak.
