(p.253) XV The Governor and the Approach of Civil War
Cicero as Evidence

This chapter begins with a discussion of Cicero's appointment as governor of Cilicia. It then focuses on the escalating conflict between Pompey and Caesar, of which Cicero was kept appraised by letters from Caelius. According to Caelius, Pompey was worried that Caesar should wish to become consul while retaining the Gallic provinces — in the same way that he himself had retained those in Spain while consul. Caesar is, however, convinced that he cannot be secure if he has left his army; nevertheless he offers this arrangement, that both should hand over their armies.
