SCISSOR

SCISSOR
servus erat apud Romanos, decorô manuum gestu cibos scindendi praeministrandique in conviviis Artem edoctus. Postquam enim Structor mensam instruxislet et proprium convenientemque cibum apposuisset, aderat Scissor, qui eum perite divideret et epulantibus ministraret: quos ambos una producit Iuvenal. Sat. 5. v. 120.
Structorem interea, ne qua indignatio desit,
Saltantem spectes, et Chironomanta volanti
Cultellô: donec peragat dictata Magistri
Omnia: nec minimo sane discrimine refert,
Quô gestu lepores et quô gallina secetur.
Ubi per Chironomanta intellige Scissorem, quod manus ducens artificiose omnia incideret, sic appellatum; a scenica consuetudine nomine traductô. Ita et Sidonius Apollinaris l. 4. Apicios epulones et Byzantmos Chironomantas, memorans, de iisdem accipiendus est. Ritum eleganter describit Seneca. Ep. 47. Cum ad cenandum discumbimus, alius sputa detergit, alius reliquias temulentorum subditus colligit, alius pretiosas aves scindit; pectus et clunes, certis ductibus circumferens manum eruditam, in frusta excutit. Quod dum fiebat, organa, tibiae, variaque alia, hydraulica inprimis, instrumenta personabant. Petronius, Processit statim Scissor, et ad symphoniam ita gesticulatus laceravit obsonium, ut putares Darium Hydraule cantante pugnare. Idem Carptor dictus est; Petron. iterum, Non minus Trimalcio eiusmodi methodio laetus, carpe inquit. Processit statim Scissor. Hinc Iuvenalis Sat. 9. v. 109.

Diribitor idem Appuleio vocatus videtur Metam. l. 2. nisi potius hi panem diribebant: mutuatâ a Comitialibus et Iudiciariis Diribitoribus appellatione. Fuisse enim penes aliquem servorum Tricliniarium hanc panis distributionem, Iuvenalis docet Sat. 5. v. 66. Vide Laur. Pignorium Comm. de Servis, Lipsium Saturnal. Serm. l. 1. c. 2. Tit. Popmam de Operis Servorum. Thomam item Dempster. Paralip. in Rosini Antiqq. Rom. l. 5. c. 29. ut et supra in voce Carptor. Sed et Scissor; apud Aegyptios olim, dicebatur unus ex tribus illis, quibus cadavera condiendi cura incumbebat, vide supra Grammaticus.
