man of consular dignity, as he is, a few
attendants to wait upon him; but, if you will

Returning to Rome, Arria met 5) the wife of
Scribonianus in the Emperor's palace, who press-

murdered in thy very arms, and yet survivest
him?"
Paetus being condemned to die, Arria formed
a deliberate resolution to share his fate, and
made no secret of her intention. Thrasea, who
married her daughter, attempting to dissuade her
from her purpose, among other arguments which
he used, said to her: . Would you then , if my
life were to be taken from me, advise your
daughter to die with me?" — • Most certain-

as long, and in as much harmony with you,
as I have lived with Paetus."

to provide herself with a dagger; and one day,
when she observed a more than usual gloom on
the countenance of Paetus, and perceived that
death by the hand of the executioner, appeared
to him more terrible than in the field of glory;
perhaps too sensible that it was chiefly for her
sake, that he wished to live — she drew 8) the
dagger from her side, and stabbed herself before
his eyes. Then instantly plucking the weapon
from her breast, she presented it to her husband,
saying: » My Paetus, it is not painful." —
