Note 051
From Chapter 44 of the Decline & Fall

The furtum lance licioque conceptum was no longer understood in the time of the Antonines (Aulus Gellius, xvi. 10.). The Attic derivation of Heineccius (Antiquitat. Rom. l. iv. tit. i. No. 13 - 21) is supported by the evidence of Aristophanes, his scholiast, and Pollux.
