棋牌 Titus tooke home with him his friend Gisippus, and after he hadsharpely reproved him for his distrust, and cold credence of hisfriendship: he brought him to Sophronia, who welcomed him as lovingly,as if he had bin her naturall borne brother, bemoaning his hard anddisastrous fortune, and taking especiall care, to convert all passeddistresses, into as happy and comfortable a change, fitting him withgarments and attendants, beseeming his degree both in Nobility andvertue. Titus, out of his honourable bounty, imparted halfe hislands and rich possessions to him, and afterward gave him in marriage,his owne Sister, a most beautifull Lady, named Fulvia, saying to himbeside. My deare friend Gisippus, it remaineth now in thine owneelection, whether thou wilt live here still with me, or returnebacke to Athens, with all the wealth which I have bestowed on thee.But Gisippus, being one way constrayned, by the sentence of banishmentfrom his native City, and then againe, in regard of the constant love,which he bare to so true and thankefull friend as Titus was: concludedto live there as a loyall Roman, where he with his Fulvia, and Tituswith his faire Sophronia, lived long after together in one and thesame house, augmenting daily (if possible it might be) their amitybeyond all other equalizing.
游戏Now, in regard it was night, he having eaten nothing all that day,nor provided of one penny to buy him any food, wandred he knew notwhether, desiring rather to die than live; hee came at last to anold ruinous part of the City, over-spred with briers and bushes, andseldome resorted unto by any: where finding a hollow Cave or vault, heentred into it, meaning there to weare away the comfortlesse night,and laying himselfe downe on the hard ground, almost starke naked, andwithout any warme garments, over-wearied with weeping, at last he fellinto a sleepe.棋牌游戏吧棋牌
游戏It fortuned that two men, who had beene abroad the same night,committing thefts and robberies together; somwhat very earlie in themorning, came to the same Cave, intending there to share and dividetheir booties, and difference happening betweene them about it, heethat was the stronger person, slew there the other, and then went awaywith the whole purchase.棋牌棋牌游戏吧游戏Gisippus having heard and seene the manner of this accident, was nota little joyfull, because he had now found a way to death, withoutlaying any violent hand on himselfe; for life being very loathsometo him, it was his only desire to die. Wherfore, he would not budgefrom the place, but taried there so long, till the Sergeants andOfficers of justice (by information of him that did the deede) camethither well attended, and furiously ledde Gisippus thence to prison.棋牌游戏Being examined concerning this bloudy fact, he plainly confessed,that hee himselfe had committed the murder, and afterward would notdepart from the Cave, but purposely stayed for apprehension, asbeing truely toucht with compunction for so foule an offence: uponwhich eremptorie confession, Marcus Varro being then Praetor, gavesentence that he should be crucified on a Crosse, as it was the usuallmanner of death in those dayes. Titus chancing to come at the sametime into Praetorium, advisedly beholding the face of the condemnedman (as hee sate upon the bench) knew him to bee Gysippus, not alittle wondring at this strange accident, the povertie of hisestate, and what occasion should bring him thither, especially inthe questioning for his life, and before the Tribunall of justice.

Marcus Varro, recall thy sentence given on the condemned mansent away, because hee is truely guiltlesse and innocent: With onebloudie blow have I offended the Gods, by killing that wretched man,whom the Serjeants found this morning slaine, wherefore Noble Praetor,let no innocent mans bloud be shed for it, but onely mine that haveoffended.棋牌详情
