M. Tulli Ciceronis Pro Sexto Roscio Amerino Oratio free pdf Excerpt from M. Tulli Ciceronis Pro Sexto Roscio Amerino Oratio Roman jurists, intended to mark the horror with which so unnatural an offence was regarded. Cicero in cap. XXVI., 71 - 72 describes how the guilty man was sewn up naked in a leather sack and cast into a running stream to drown. From another of his writings and from Justinian's Pandects we gather further particulars- that the parricide's head was bound up in a bag of wolf's skin, and that wooden sandals were bound on his feet - presumably to symbolise that he was unfit to breathe the air or touch the earth - after which he was kept in solitary confinement till the sack was ready. Then he was first scourged with scarlet rods, after which he was sewn into a leather sack into which were placed a dog, a cock, a viper and an ape, all of which, we must infer, conveyed to the Roman mind suggestions associated with unnatural or inhuman instincts. It is some satisfaction, however, to know that the penalty was rarely inflicted and only after a confession of guilt.
