I hear that they are going to produce also
that law which ordains that, in the interest of those who are inscribed on the
register, whatever portion of the debt be paid shall be erased, and they will
ask how men are to make erasures, when the debt has not even been entered on the
register; as if you did not know that this statute has to do with debtors who
are registered, while to those who are not registered but owe money that other
law applies, which declares that one is a debtor from the day on which the
penalty is incurred or on which he transgresses the law or the decree.
