Video: Gaius begins his speech
Cornelius has spoken first, boasting of his noble and distinguished ancestry and his riches. He finishes triumphantly with, ‘Now say as ye will, sir, for I have all do’. (‘Sir’ has become an insult between the two parties.) Gaius takes up the challenge in an apparently more measured and restrained style.
