Fees and Surcharges

Cicero, Against Verres (tr. L.H.G. Greenwood, with his note):
All these terms, gentlemen, are not names for real thingsb: they are names for impudent pieces of theft.

b i.e., for costs really incurred or real work performed.

haec omnia, iudices, non rerum certarum, sed furtorum improbissimorum sunt vocabula.
