This Lucius was an auctioneer who had set free one of his slaves, Felix.
To my great relief, she was interrupted by the auctioneer, and the sound of his hammer.
"Eleven pounds I am offered, gentlemen," shouted the auctioneer.
The auctioneer disappeared through the door, and Angelelli put on his hat.
I got a good revolver, and succeeded in bringing an auctioneer from a distance.
