Excerpt from Sallust's History of the War Against Jugurtha, and of the Conspiracy of Catiline: With a Dictionary and Notes

Soon after these events the civil war was renewed in Africa. Where the rem nants, of the senatorial party had been assembled under the command of Scipio and Cato. To oppose these Sallust was directed to conduct a detachment of several legions. By the way of Capua to the shores of Campania, where they were to embark for Africa. On arriving at the port of embarkation. A mutiny arose among the troops on account of their unwillingness to leave Italy, and to encounter anew the hardships and dangers to which they had been so long ex posed. Sallust found his authority of no avail to suppress the insurrection, and was compelled to secure his own safety by a precipitate ¿ight to Rome, whither he was followed by a great number of the troops. Order being at length restored by the presence and authority of Caesar, the legions consent ed to embark. And shortly afterwards landed in Africa. Subsequently in an expe dition entrusted to his command. Against the island of Cercina, Sallust is said to have evinced considerable courage. Military skill and prowess.

After-the close of this war, he was appointed to the command of the African province. Where he acquired immense riches by oppressing the people. On his return home. He was accused by the Numidians, of mal-administration of the affairs of his province. But escaped punishment through the friendship of Caesar with whom he is reported to have shared his spoils. Scarcely, however, had he been acquitted. When Caesar, on whom all his fortunes depended. Was assassinated. On the ides of March. In the year of Rome 710.
