Description: Cicero never uses exsilium, exsul, and exsulo in reference to himself, except to reject them (dom. 72 ; ad Q. fr. 3, 2, 2 ; Parad. 27-32). Cicero hopes to restore his reputation by depicting himself either as a victim of illegal persecution driven from his country by force or as a courageous patriot who selflessly yelded and departed for his country's benefit.
