GRECIANS AND ROMANS 
  
     both. Their meeting was by the citie of Bolonia, where  CICERO
     they continued three dayes together, they three only secretly  
     consulting in a place environned about with a litle river.  
     Some say that Caesar stuck hard with Cicero the two first  
     dayes, but at the third, that he yeelded and forsooke him.  
     The exchaunge they agreed upon betwene them, was this.  
     Caesar forsooke Cicero: Lepidus, his owne brother Paulus:  Cicero ap-
     and Antonius, Lucius Caesar, his uncle by the mothers side.  pointed to
     Such place tooke wrath in them, as they regarded no kinred  be slaine.
     nor blood, and to speake more properly, they shewed that  
     no brute or savage beast is so cruell as man, if with his  
     licentiousnes he have liberty to execute his will. While  
     these matters were a brewing, Cicero was at a house of his  
     in the contrie, by the city of Thusculum, having at home  
     with him also his brother Quintus Cicero. Newes being  
     brought them thither of these proscriptions or outlawries,  
     appointing men to be slaine: they determined to goe to  
     Astyra, a place by the sea side where Cicero had an other  
     house, there to take sea, and from thence to goe into Mace-  
     don unto Brutus. For there ran a rumor that Brutus  
     was verie strong, and had a great power. So, they caused  
     them selves to be conveyed thither in two litters, both of  
     them being so weake with sorow and griefe, that they could  
     not otherwise have gone their wayes. As they were on their  
     waye, both their litters going as neere to ech other as they  
     could, they bewailed their miserable estate: but Quintus  
     chiefly, who tooke it most grievously. For, remembring  
     that be tooke no money with him when he came from his  
     house, and that Cicero his brother also had verie litle for  
     him selfe: he thought it best that Cicero shoulde holde on  
     his jorney, whilest he him selfe made an arrant home to  
     fetche suche thinges as he lacked, and so to make hast  
     againe to overtake his brother. They both thought it best  
     so, and then tenderly imbracing one an other, the teares  
     falling from their eyes, they tooke leave of ech other. Within  
     few dayes after, Quintus Cicero being betrayed by his owne  
     servaunts, unto them that made search for him: he was  
     cruelly slaine, and his sonne with him. But Marcus Tullius  Quintus
     Cicero being caried unto Astyra, and there finding a shippe  Cicero slaine.
