Pagina 319 - Twelve Ethelings governed over the land of the Saxons ; and whenever war arose in that land, the Saxons chose one of the twelve to be king while the war lasted : when the war was finished the twelve became alike.
Pagina 77 - Subsequently the custom must have grown obsolete : the gentiles were certainly not called upon, except when the means of the clients were inadequate ; and when the relations of clientship had extended over the whole of Italy and still further, there was so seldom occasion to call on them, that the right itself was forgotten. Yet even so late as the second Punic war the gentiles wanted to ransom their fellows who were in captivity, and were forbidden to do it by the senate u.
Pagina 82 - ... representatives of the houses, and must have been originally chosen by the houses and not by the curies. When the state was without a king, ten senators presided over it during the interregnum. The office of king was elective. When it was vacant, the senate agreed among themselves on the person to be proposed to the curies, whose power was confined to accepting or rejecting him. It was a rogation, as in the case of a law, and hence the interrex is said rogare regem to put his acceptance to the...
Pagina 143 - The pontifical law-books, clothing the principles of the constitution after their manner in a historical form, preserve the true account. For what other source can have supplied Dionysius with the resolution of the senate, as it professes to be, that a citizen whom the senate should nominate and the people approve of, should govern for six months ? The people here is the populus. It was a revival of the ancient custom for the king to be elected by the patricians; and that such was the form is established...
Pagina 58 - The poems out of which what we call the history of the Roman Kings was resolved into a prose narrative, were different from the nenia...
Pagina 22 - Sabellian mountaineers, but especially of the Sabines and the four northern cantons ; and they preserved it long after the virtues of ancient times had disappeared at Rome from the hearts and demeanour of men.
Pagina 70 - Palatium, with a door facing each of the cities, as the gate of the double barrier which separated their liberties: it was open in time of war, that succour might pass from one to the other ; and shut during peace; whether for the purpose of...
Pagina 125 - ... appointed his nephew Egerius as its governor, who forthwith took, and transmitted to his descendants, the name of Collatinus. His daughter-in-law, Lucretia, was residing here during the siege of Ardea, and thus Collatia became the scene of the events which led to the overthrow of the Roman monarchy. " As the king's sons and their cousin L. Tarquinius were sitting over their cups at Ardea, a dispute arose about the virtue of their wives. This cousin, surnamed Collatinus, from Collatia, where he...
Pagina 288 - Though history, however, rejects the incident as demonstrably false, it is well suited to the legend: and every legend which was current among the people long before the rise of literature among them, is itself a living memorial of ancient times, — even though its contents may not be so, — and deserves a place in a history of Rome written with a due love of the subject THE WAR WITH THE GAULS, AND THE TAKING ROME.
Pagina 143 - Sylla, and the monarchy of Caesar, the term dictatorship was merely a name, without any ground for such a use in the ancient constitution. This last application of the term enables us to account for the error of Dion Cassius, when, overlooking the freedom of the patricians, he expressly asserts, that in no instance was there a...
