But thieves and people of infamous characters were not treated with so much formality. When a fellow in Plautus cries out, "Will you not call a witness before you seize me?" nonne antestaris? (Persa 747-748) he is answered, "What, shall I touch an honest man's ear for such a scoundrel as you are?" Pliny tells us, the lowest part of the ear is the seat of memory, from whence came this form of their laws. I assent. Oppono auriculam. Such was the law term, which our poet very willingly pronounced, to signify the consent of the witness. He hurries him into court: there is a great clamor on both sides, a mob from all parts.
