Pro Milone

M. Tullius Cicero

...nullum in urbe vicum, nullum angiportum esse dicebant in quo Miloni conducta non esset domus; arma in villam Ocriculanam devecta Tiberi, domus in clivo Capitolino scutis referta, plena omnia malleolorum ad urbis incendia comparatorum. was asserted that there was no quarter, no alley in the city, in which a house had not been hired for Milo's use; that arms had been sent down the Tiber to his villa at Ocriculum, that his house upon the slope of the Capitol was stacked with shields, and that every place was piled with brands for setting the city on fire.
