Description: [L'Année philologique] [Comment] Cicero was not able to justify fully the use of extreme violence against cives, especially homicide, until after his unsuccessful defense of Milo in 52 ; for it is in the published version of the Pro Milone that the jargon of factional politics, e.g. tyrannis and regnum, is transformed into the binding vocabulary of philosophy.
