M. Tullius Cicero, Against Verres (ed. C. D. Yonge), section 90 (search)
The people of Petra, though their tenths had been sold at a high price, were, very much against their will, compelled to give thirty-seven thousand sesterces to Publius Naevius Turpio, a most infamous man, who was convicted of assault while Sacerdos was praetor.
