The notes here are taken from the actual Scala, so be warned that references to the "previous" proverb refer to its order in the Scala, not its order here. You can read more about the word at the Verbosum blog: TRANSMITTO.

Nudum latro transmittit.

In idem flumen bis descendimus et non descendimus: manet enim idem fluminis nomen; aqua transmissa est.

Nudum latro transmittit; etiam in obsessa via pauperi pax est.

Parisios bipedum si quis transmittat asellum, si fuit hic asinus, non ibi fiet equus.

Quo nequit ire Satan, transmittit saepe ministrum.

Aranearum telae muscas retinent, vespas transmittunt. ~ Note: This is a famous metaphor for the law, how it captures the little criminals but lets the big criminals go.
