From Chapter 31 of the Decline & Fall

See the dialogue of Lucian, entitled de Saltatione, tom. ii. p. 265-317, edit. Reitz. The pantomimes obtained the honourable name of Ancient Greek and it was required that they should be conversant with almost every art and science. Burette (in the Memoires de l'Academie des Inscriptions, tom. i. p. 127, etc.) has given a short history of the art of pantomimes.
