He also stabbed the leader of the dark brotherhoods husband and then fled to the old sanctuary in dawn star to hide until I chased him down and murdered him.
@Fes, if you examine our society more closely you'll see that this is still relevant today, despite it being written thousands of years ago
@Thane of Deez, yes, because they had "billable" doctors in 43 b.c /s
@Fes, yeah, Cicero was a part of the ruling class of Rome (called the "optimates", Latin for "best ones") who didn't care for the peasant class. Cicero not only didn't care that the poor were exploited (actually exploited, not like people claim they are today), but he would have supported it as the "way of the ancestors" ("mos maiores" in Latin).
pretty sure banks were not invented back then.
@Michael G Scott, its rome they had banks however much different than madern banks
@Michael G Scott, not as we know banks now but there were markets and people who could be considered "bankers".
@Michael G Scott, ancient Romans used temple banking where bankers could deposit people's money use to pay debt
@Michael G Scott, Pretty sure doctors were not charging high prices back then, or saving that many patients....
@zuisher , they also had "fire departments"
@Michael G Scott, probably a bad translation and would be more accurately translated as money lenders... which have been around a long long long time
@Michael G Scott, probably a bad translation and would be more accurately translated as money lenders... which have been around a long long long time. That is if it is a true quote at all which I do not believe
@WifitheRouter, where they would set fire to your house so you could pay them to put it out
@zuisher , correct. Modern banking was invented by the Medici family in the early 15th century to make their spice trading business flow better
@Michael G Scott, someone wasn't a history buff
@zuisher , fun fact the Templars invented modern backing.
The merchants would deposit the money in a Templar "vault" and would receive a note travel to the city they where going and show that Templar the note and get the money back
@BexarMinimum, Modern banking was invented in the Italian Renaissance. Templar "banks" still functioned differently than modern banks.
@CriTiKa1, true shouldn't have used the term "modern"
@BexarMinimum, Banks were not around in any form during the Roman REPUBLIC which was what existed at the time of Cicero. The first banks didn't come about until the Knights Templar offered a system of lending and borrowing between their lodges mainly as a way to protect the assets of the crusaders as they departed from the Vatican and surrounding Italy in the 14th century. It later was modernized during the Italian Renaissance and the role of a bank in finance and investment truly began around this point.
Now, there were temples at the time of Cicero that would store and move money around to some degree, but it had nothing to do with finance and was not banking in the proper sense.
@PB2, I was talking about Templar knights from. The crusades not the roman republic but yes I agree with you
The doctor bills all eight? Nopeeeeeeeeeeeee not in england babyyyyyyyyyyyy. I mean we pay taxes for it but thats besides the point thats more the government taking the money and distributing it around everywhere
I got really confused when I saw undertaker
Cicero lived during the Roman Republic, not during the Empire.
