ama aut cujus vocem libentissime audiret, ejus a quo sua virtus optime praedicaretur. Itaque ille Marius item eximie L. Plotium dilexit, cujus ingenio putabat ea quae gesserat, posse celebrari.

Praedicaretur, audiret, patiatur.

3. Sed tamen cum in animis hominum tantae latebrae sint et tanti recessus, augeamus sane suspicionem tuam : simul enim augebimus diligentiam. Nam quis est omnium tam ignarus rerum, tam rudis in re publica, tam nihil umquam nec de sua nec de communi salute cogitans, qui non intelligat tua salute contineri suam et ex unius tua vita pendere omnium ?

Sint, augeamus, intelligat.

4. Etenim quaero, si quis pater familias, liberis suis a servo interfectis, uxore occisa, incensa domo, supplicium de servo non quam acerbissimum sumpserit, utrum is clemens ac misericors an inhumanissimus et crudelissimus esse videatur? Mihi vero importunus ac ferreus, qui non dolore et cruciatu nocentis suum dolorem cruciatumque lenierit.

Videatur, lenierit.
5. Non ulli pastos illis egere diebus

Frigida, Daphni, boves ad flumina; nulla nec amnem
Libavit quadrupes, nec graminis attigit herbam.
Daphni, tuum Poenos etiam ingemuisse leones
Interitum montesque feri silvaeque loquuntur.
Daphnis et Armenias curru subiungere tigris
Instituit, Daphnis thiasos inducere Bacchi

Et foliis lentas intexere mollibus hastas.
6. Heu vatum ignarae mentes ! quid vota furentem,

Quid delubra iuvant ? Est mollis flamma medullas
Interea, et tacitum vivit sub pectore volnus.
Uritur infelix Dido totaque vagatur
Urbe furens, qualis coniecta cerva sagitta,

Quam procul incautam nemora inter Cresia fixit
Pastor agens telis, liquitque volatile ferrum
Nescius; illa fuga silvas saltusque peragrat

Dictaeos; haeret lateri letalis arundo.
How is the translation indicated by the quantity in 5,
line 1? What is the quantity of u in saltus in 6, line 8?
Why?
