De Domo Sua
M. Tullius Cicero
Nam cum ingravesceret annona, ut iam plane inopia ac fames, non caritas timeretur, concursus est ad templum Concordiae factus, senatum illuc vocante Metello consule.
When prices were rising so steadily, that we began to fear not mere dearness but actual destitution and famine, the mob flocked to the temple of Concord, whither the consul Metellus was summoning the senate.
