They were bought off by Jugurtha, and returned home without accomplishing anything.
But Jugurtha knew the Romans of that day, and trusted to his gold.
Numidae ab Jugurtha pro tempore parati instructique; dein proelium incipitur.
Jugurtha fell into an ambush, and was conveyed a prisoner to Rome.
The end of Jugurtha was one in accordance with the brutal cruelty of Rome, yet it was one which he richly deserved.
It was mainly through Sullas efforts that Jugurtha was captured.
After further negotiations with Sulla, he finally agreed to send a message to Jugurtha requesting his presence.
Marius continued more than a year in Africa after the capture of Jugurtha.
The miracle was perhaps the more easily wrought, inasmuch as Jugurtha had found the floor of the dungeon oozy with wet.
Jugurtha is opposed in Numidia by the Roman army headed by Metellus.
