nono anno post reges exactos, cum gener Tarquini ad iniuriam soceri vindicandam ingentem collegisset exercitum, nova Romae dignitas est creata, quae dictatura appellatur, maior quam consulatus.

In the ninth year after the kings were expelled, when Tarquinius’ son-in-law had gathered together an army to avenge the wrong done to his father-in-law, a new office was created at Rome, which is called the Dictatorship and is greater than the Consulship.
