Thank you 😊A brilliant lawyer and speakerWhen Cicero’s daughter died he wanted to build her a magnificent tomb, but Roman law limited how much you could spend on a tomb. So he read up on the law and found that if the called the tomb a “shrine,” he could spend as much money as he wanted AND he’d get a tax break for it.
Sounds familiar to modern day tactics. 😂
Im confused what happened?
Stop asking me if I wanna meet you for real. I don’t do that and I’m hurting (not cause of you, other stuff) and I’m going to bed.
Sorry. 😢 i was wrong i guess.
It's ok. I'm sorry too.
Yes, but that was hundreds of years later. Julius Caesar conquered and subdued the Gauls (he even had the Gallic leader Vercingetorix executed to prove a point). Caesar was murdered by a bunch of other Senators because they thought he wanted to destroy the democratic government of Rome. (Granted, it was a democracy of rich male landowners, but in the minds of his killers that was still better than a government controlled by Caesar.)
He was an amazing lawyer. Back then it was illegal to pay your lawyer (paying him was seen as "demeaning the profession"), but you were allowed to give him gifts. At one time Cicero had 17 houses, all given him to give by grateful clients when he won their case.

I totally agree. Do you think he died well at the end?
by him being murder i dont think so it would have been better if he died of old age
TrueHe stuck his head out the window of the carriage and told the commander "Strike quickly and strike true. And when you report back to Marcus Antonius (Marc Antony), tell him I died like a Roman."
him knowing he was going to die and him embracing death is very rare

I'll consider it
He died honorably
