Seneca the Younger to be exact. Good job, that was a tough one.

Quote:
Recruits! Before the altar and the servant of God you have given me the oath of allegiance...You have sworn fidelity to me, you are the children of my guard, you are my soliders, you have surrendered yourself to me, body and soul.
