§ 45. Recapitulation. Principal points;—the loan was made on clear conditions; it has not been repaid; the ship has never been produced; there is a fine specified for this neglect, and the liability falls on one or both partners.

εὐμνημόνευτα [‘Easily recalled to memory’: an ambiguous term, meaning either, ‘readily recounted by the speaker,’ or ‘readily remembered by the hearer.’ It is almost certainly the latter, and this is supported by Aristot. Rhet. III 13, where it is said that the ἐπίλογος, one of the objects of which is recapitulation (ἀναμνῆσαι τὰ προειρημένα, ib. 19), is unnecessary in a forensic speech ἐὰν μικρὸς λόγος τὸ πρᾶγμα εὐμνημόνευτον. S.]
