executioner: > Now (cried he) it is your part
» to perform the rest." Thus saying, he again
resumed his seat, with an air of determined ma-
jesty; nor could all the sentiments of paternal
pity, the imploring iooks of the people, nor the
dreadful situation of the young men, who were
preparing for the execution, alter his determination.
The executioners having stripped, and then whip-
ped them with rods, presently after beheaded
them; Brutus, all the time beholding the cruel
spectacle with a steady look and unaltered coun-
tenance, while the multitude gazed with all the
sensations of pity, terror, and admiration.

145. Appius en Virginia.
The Decemvir Appius, sitting one day on his
tribunal to dispense justice, saw 1) a maiden of
exquisite beauty, aged about fifteen, passing to
one of the public schools, attended by a matron,
her nurse. The charms of this damsel, heightened
by all the innocence of virgin modesty, caught 2)
hisattention, and fired his heart. The day following,
as she passed, he found her still more beautiful
than before, and his breast still more inflamed,
lie therefore resolved to obtain the gratification
of his passion, whatever should be the conse-
quence, and found means to inform himself of
the virgin's name and family. Her name was Vir-
ginia. She was the daughter of Virqinius, a cen-
turion, then with the array in the field, and had
been contracted to Icilius, formerly a tribune of
the people, who had agreed to marry her at the
end of the present campaign. Appius, at first,
resolved to break this match, and to espouse her;
but the laws of the twelve tables had forbidden
the patricians to intermarry with the plcbejans.
