  1. These arms seeming to Marcellus, while he viewed the enemy's army drawn up in battalia to be the best and fairest, and thinking them to be those he had vowed to Jupiter, he instantly ran upon the king, and pierced through his breastplate with his lance; then pressing upon him with the weight of his horse, threw him to the ground, and with two or three strokes more, slew him. – Plutarch-Lives-of-the-noble-Grecians-and-Romans by Clough, Arthur Hugh
