[69] Finally to remove all reason for feeling surprise at the employment of apostrophe, Cicero in his defence of Scaurus,1 on a charge of bribery (the speech is to be found in his Notebooks; for he defended him twice) actually introduces an imaginary person speaking on behalf of the accused, while in his pro Rahirio and his speech in defence of this same Scaurus on a charge of extortion he [p. 45] employs illustrations, and in the pro Cluentio, as I have already pointed out, introduces division into heads.

1 This speech is lost: the existing speech in his defence is on the charge of extortion.
