Annos undeviginti natus exercitum privato consilio et privata impensa comparavi , per quem rem publicam a dominatione factionis oppressam in libertatem vindicavi . [ Ob quae ] senatus decretis honorificis in ordinem suum me adlegit , C . Pansa et A . Hirtio consulibus , consularem locum sententiae dicendae tribuens , et imperium mihi dedit . Res publica ne quid detrimenti caperet , me propraetore simul cum consulibus providere iussit . Populus autem eodem anno me consulem , cum cos . uterque bello cecidisset , et triumvirum rei publicae constituendae creavit .
Qui parentem meum trucidaverunt , eos in exilium expuli iudiciis legitimis ultus eorum facinus , et postea bellum inferentis rei publicae vici bis acie .
Bella terra et mari civilia externaque toto in orbe terrarum saepe gessi , victorque omnibus veniam petentibus civibus peperci . Externas gentes , quibus tuto ignosci potuit , conservare quam excidere malui . Millia civium Romanorum sub sacramento meo fuerunt circiter quingenta . Ex quibus deduxi in colonias aut remisi in municipia sua stipendis emeritis millia aliquanto plura quam trecenta , et iis omnibus agros adsignavi aut pecuniam pro praemiis militiae dedi . Naves cepi sescentas praeter eas , si quae minores quam triremes fuerunt .
When I was 19 years old , and at my own initiative and expense , I gathered an army with which I would free the state , which was dominated by a faction . For this reason , the senate brought me in by a resolution . when Gaius Pansa and Aulus Hirtius were consuls ( 43 B . C . E . ) , assigning me to be consuls in the giving of opinions , and gave me the imperium . With me as proprietor , it ordered me , with the Consuls , to take care of the state should any detriment fall upon it . But the people made me consul in the same year , when the consuls died in battle , they made me a triumvir for the settling it of the state .
I drove the men who killed my father into exile with legal order , punishing them for their crimes , after this , they waged war on the state , I defeated them in two battles .
I often wage war , on the land and sea , civil and foreign , in the whole world , as I conquer , I spare any citizen who show kindness . As for the foreign nations , those which I safely pardon , I prefer to preserve rather than destroy . I have about five hundred thousand Roman citizen who are under me . I led a little more than three hundred thousand to forging colonies and then I returned them back to their cities , after their salary having been earned , and I assigned all of them felids or gave them money for their service . I seized 600 ships if they were smaller than trireme .
In my nineteenth year , on my own initiative and at my own expense , I raised an army with which I set free the state , which was oppressed by the domination of a faction . For that reason , the senate enrolled me in its order by laudatory resolutions , when Gaius Pansa and Aulus Hirtius were consuls ( 43 B . C . E . ) , assigning me the place of a consul in the giving of opinions , and gave me the imperium . With me as propraetor , it ordered me , together with the consuls , to take care lest any detriment befall the state . But the people made me consul in the same year , when the consuls each perished in battle , and they made me a triumvir for the settling of the state .
I drove the men who slaughtered my father into exile with a legal order , punishing their crime , and afterwards , when they waged war on the state , I conquered them in two battles .
I often waged war , civil and foreign , on the earth and sea , in the whole wide world , and as victor I spared all the citizens who sought pardon . As for foreign nations , those which I was able to safely forgive , I preferred to preserve than to destroy . About five hundred thousand Roman citizens were sworn to me . I led something more than three hundred thousand of them into colonies and I returned them to their cities , after their stipend had been earned , and I assigned all of them fields or gave them money for their military service . I captured six hundred ships in addition to those smaller than triremes .
