I got interested in rauduscul* because of its appearance in Varro, LL:
I’d be quite keen to know who Varro is quoting in this context and if the sale in question might be a manumission…
Anyway, all the uses by Cicero are exceptionally casual and dismissive, not at all in same level of solemnity that Varro seems to be describing.
