Brennus

Brennus, a Gallic chief, who, 300 B.C., after taking and pillaging Rome, invested the Capitol for so long that the Romans offered him a thousand pounds' weight of gold to retire; as the gold was being weighed out he threw his sword and helmet into the opposite scale, adding Væ victis, “Woe to the conquered,” an insolence which so roused Camillus, that he turned his back and offered battle to him and to his army, and totally routed the whole host.
