Caesar Victorious; Ariovistus Escapes

Thus in this way, battle was renewed and all the enemies turned their backs, and they stopped fleeing until they arrived to the Rhine River 1500 feet from this place. There either was very few men confident in strength to swim across or boats having been found, they discovered the safety for themselves. Ariovistus was in these, which he, having been found, obtained the assigned small boat tied to the bank of the river by in it he fled; our cavalry killed all of them. There were two wives of Ariovistus one Sueba by birth whom he had led into marriage at home; the other Norica, the sister of King Voccions, whom had led into Gallia, sent from the brothers each was killed in this flight. They had two daughters; one of the two was killed, the other was captured. C. Valerius Procillius, with three chains bound, when he was dragged down in flight by guards, he fell in with Caesar himself following the enemy with cavalry and this circumstance indeed this enjoyment was reported to Caesar which was no less than victory itself, because he saw a very distinguished man of the Gallic province, his friendship and guest restored to himself, ripped from the enemy's hand. And not fortune had dimminshed in the least degree by his misfortune in Caesar's so great of delight and gratitude. He, Procillius, in his presense, said the three times the lots were consulted about him whether he should be killed by fire immediately or be save for anotehr time that he was safe by the benefit of lots. Likewise, Mettius was found and was led back to Caesar.
