Amanuensis

the definition of this word is basically, someone employed to take dictation or copy manuscripts. Not much call for those these days, what with word processing and voice recognition technology. But in case you're interested, it comes from Latin: servus+ a manu+ ensis (i.e. a slave belonging to you for handwriting). Thank you, Google!

I've just decided that Cassius (from Born of Stone, see "Projects") is an amanuensis, not a scribe.
