Turning from Nazis to Roman Republican lawyers, Harris fictionalizes the Catiline conspiracy for the second in his Cicero triology, told from the view of long-suffering slave-secretary Tiro of the legal shorthand. Thanks to Tiro and his wax tablets, we have the fabulously rabble rousing Ad Catilina: Quousque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra? Quam diu etiam furor iste tuus nos eludet? quem ad finem sese effrenata iactabit audacia?
