[56] For as Cicero1 says, the shorter form of digression may be effected in a number of different ways. The following passages will, however, suffice as examples: “Then Gaius Varenus, that is, the Varenus who was killed by the slaves of Ancharius:—I beg you, gentlemen, to give careful attention to what I am about to say2;” the second is from the pro Milone3: “Then he turned on me that glance, which it was his wont to assume, when he threatened all the world with every kind of violence.”

1 From the passage quoted IX. i. 28.

2 From the lost pro Varcno.

3 xii. 33.
