stones, or any movable property to another, and wish to recover it from
him; if the latter do not bring all of the property to the appointed
place, but appropriate it to his own use, then shall this man, who did not
bring the property to hand it over, be convicted, and he shall pay
fivefold for all that had been entrusted to him.
