Synopsis: The revolt of Avidius Cassius. "There is only one thing I fear, fellow-soldiers…and that is that (Avidius Cassius) may either kill himself because ashamed to come into our presence, or someone else upon learning that I shall come and am setting out against him may do it. Then should I be deprived of a great prize both of war and of victory, and of a magnitude such as no human being ever yet obtained. What is this? Why, to forgive a man that has done you an injury, to remain a friend to one who has transgressed friendship, to continue faithful to one who has broken faith.” – Marcus Aurelius, quoted by Cassius Dio, Rome, Book 71http://s407341505.onlinehome.us/Episode_B26_Emanes.mp3Avidius Cassius Family Tree: http://s407341505.onlinehome.us/B25_Avidius_Cassius.pdf. . .
