Scribe of wisdom


>Shameless or brazen boldness

>Insolent and shameless audacity

To the Romans, the shameless were “without forehead,” at least figuratively. Effrontery derives from Latin effrons, a word that combines the prefix ex- (meaning “out” or “without”) and “frons” (meaning “forehead” or “brow”).
