Vatinius, imperator, to his friend Cicero greeting … I am told that your slave – the runaway reader – is with the Vardaei. … I, however, gave orders by anticipation that he should be hunted down by land and sea, and I shall certainly find him for you, unless he has escaped to Dalmatia, and even thence I will extract him sooner or later. From the camp at Narona, 13 July. – Cicero, V, Letter IX.
