(a) Per idem tempus Cn. Servilius consul Romæ idibus Martiis magistratum iniit. Ibi quum de republica retulisset, redintegrata in C.

Magistratus id a domo, publicis privatisque penatibus, Latinis feriis actis, sacrificio in monte perfecto, votis rite in Capitolio nuncupatis, secum ferre : nec privatum auspicia sequi, nec sine auspiciis pro
