(Berlin, 1725-1797.) Gr. The schoolmaster of Falerii, "1770." Peculiar style. C. "Camillus, the Falerii, one of the cities of the Etruscan Confederacy. A schoolmaster, who had the care of the sons of the principal citizens of the place, took the opportunity, when walking with the boys without the walls, to lead them to the Roman camp, and throw them into the power of the enemy. But Camillus, indignant at this treason, bade the boys to drive their master back into the town again, flogging him all the way thither; 'for the Romans,' he said, 'Made no war with children.' Upon this, the Faliscans, won by his magnanimity, surrendered at discretion, themselves, their city, and their country." Thos. K. Arnold's "History of Rome."--See Livy, vol. 27. [P. 39.]
