It is one thing to say that it is right that for their own safety foreign peoples should surrender their autonomy and obey the dictates of Rome; Cicero does this casually (Q. fr. 34). It is not clear, however, that it is equally unproblematic to say that Roman senators should lose their freedom and submit to an emperor. In other words, because there is a real difference between Cato and a Caledonian, simply suggesting that the principate’s effect on Roman elites is like that of the empire on barbarians may itself be to question the legitimacy of the principate.
