Cicero Denounces Catiline

Cicero denounces Catiline, fresco by Cesare Maccari (1840-1919).

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be filled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome be bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." -- Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC
