There was no abatement in any part either in vigilance or activity; watches in the city, out-posts before the gates, and guards stationed along the walls: and a justitium was observed for several days (a thing which was necessary in such general confusion).
Quintius to the city put a termination to the justitium, which lasted only four days.
After this they returned to Rome; the order for the justitium was discharged.
Sulla himself took refuge in the house of Marius, which was close to the forum, and in order to save his life he was obliged to remove the justitium.
To prevent the Tribune from putting these rogations to the vote, the Consuls declared a justitium, during which no business could be legally transacted.
But Sulpicius was resolved to carry his point; with an armed band of followers he entered the forum and called upon the Consuls to withdraw the justitium; and upon their refusal to comply with his demand he ordered his satellites to draw their swords and fall upon them.
