The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
LIX. Trajan to Pliny
 
 
YOU may without scruple, my dearest Secundus, if the situation requires it, remove the temple of the mother of the gods, from the place where it now stands, to any other spot more convenient. You need be under no difficulty with respect to the act of dedication; for the ground of a foreign city 1 is not capable of receiving that kind of consecration which is sanctified by our laws.  1
 
Note 1. That is, a city not admitted to enjoy the laws and privileges of Rome. M. [back]
