-  The mention of an explicit exception suggests the existence of a rule in the cases not affected by the exception.
- Derived from the Latin exceptio probat regulam in casibus non exceptis ("The exception confirms the rule in the non-excepted cases."). Used in Cicero's defense by Lucius Cornelius Balbus Maiors, in which Cicero argued that if an exception made an act illegal, this act should be assessed as legal in the cases that are not affected by the exception. 
-  From the mention of a "open to shops Sundays “it can be concluded that usually on Sundays no Sale takes place.
