    i need the follwing translations from 'Commentarii de Bello Gallico' (The Gallic Wars) :


    Hi omnes lingua, legibus aliisque, ebus multis inter se differunt.

    Praeterea, proximi ssunt Germanis, qui trans Rhenum incolunt, quibiscum contineater bellum gerunt.

    Casticus, Sequonus, auctoritate Orgetorigis inductus, regnum in civitae sua occupare constituit.

    Ita Orgetorix tres firmissi___(can't read my writing) populos conjunxit ut per eos totius Galliae imperium obtineret.

    Cum omnia quae ad profectionem pertinent paravissent, opida sua omnia incenderunt.

    Cum omnes res ad profectionem comparavissent, diem dixerunt, qua die ad ripam Rhodani omnes convenirent.

    Pontem qui ex Helvetiis ad Genebam pertinebat rescindi iusset.

    memoris enim tenebat Helvetios consulem Romanum occidesse exercitumque eius perulisse atque superavisse.

    Itaque Helvetii flumen Rhodanum transire conati sunt, sed operis mantione(?) et telis repulsi sunt.



    C'mon, SOMEBODY has to know....i need 2 minimum...

    Where did you get this? I know that this is a commentary on some Celtic(or Gallic warriors) like Casticus,seqouno,etc Do you have a professor you could ask?

    From my limited spanish and french, I gather that the writer is describing the warriors and their culture. Something about their language being mixed?

    Some Germanic warriors from the Rhine(rhenum) they and the celts occupy a region near the rhine

    The opedum I think is a burial chamber,and it is describing it, as wide and round...

    That is all I gather. I hope I am not misleading you,but I think that is what this is. A description of some warriors and their occupancy of some area or territory.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
