This paper would outline which delivery and gestures could be appropriate in Rome between first century BC and the first century AC to an orator who would arouse a smile in the audience or provoke laughter, now to gain the benevolence of the judges, now to ease the tension in the audience, or to discredit the counterparty in a process, turning laughter into mockery. The technical rhetorical precepts taken into consideration outline an ‘actio’ / delivery polite and moderate, never scurrilous, rough or coarse.


orator, delivery, gestures, laughter, mockery
