There is also a kind of repetition of the statement
which the Greeks call ἐπιδιηγήσις.
It belongs to
declamation rather than forensic oratory, and was invented to enable the speaker (in view of the fact that
the statement should be brief) to set forth his facts
at greater length and with more profusion of ornament, as a means of exciting indignation or pity. I
think that this should be done but rarely and that
we should never go to the extent of repeating the
in its entirety. For we can attain the same
result by a repetition only of parts. Anyone, however, who desires to employ this form of repetition,
should touch but lightly on the facts when making
and should content himself with merely
indicating what was done, while promising to set
forth how it was done more fully when the time
comes for it.
