Cicero, de Republica 2.1
The Foundation of Rome
Accordingly in my discourse i shall go back, as Cato (the elder) used to do' to the 'origin' of the Roman people (I gladly Borrow his actual word). Moreover, it will be easier to carry out my plan if I describe for you the birth, and maturity of our state, which eventually became so firm and strong, than if i deal with some imaginary community, as Socrates does in Plato.
