Опис:

I was made to observe at Rome some vestiges of an ancient custom very proper in those days - it was the parading of the streets by a set of people called Preci, who went some minutes before the Flamen Dialis to bid the inhabitants leave work or play, and attend wholly to the procession; but if ill omens prevented the pageants from passing, or if the occasion of the mow was deemed scarcely worthy its celebration, these Preci stood a chance of being ill-treated by the spectators.
