Description: Cicero ad Quintum fratrem 11 xi (Watt, Sjägren), x (Purser); (Tyrrell & Purser, Correspondence II, (2nd ed.), p. 12.5 ff.)1)These two passages are clearly linked by their ideas and phraseology. Both are difficult to interpret, and the problems of the first have led editors to alter the text. The purpose of this paper is to place the passages in their wider context, that of popular justice and popular demonstration, in order to show their implications, and to urge the retention of the manuscript text [Author].
