"A dramatic entertainment, originating in Roman mime, in which performers express meaning through gestures accompanied by music............." sounds just like the old movies before talkies.
I just think of Pantomime's as the cheesy plays at Christmas time.
I got it in the dying seconds, mostly by throwing everything I could think of at the question, but rolled my eyes pretty hard when "pantomime" was accepted.
Also I feel like "medicine" in the clue is a slightly misleading for "placebo", I was trying to think of more like herbal/homeopathic medicine type of root for medicine that doesn't contain any active ingredient
Pantomime is a noun, so you really mean “mime” which doesn’t begin with P.
Plutarchy should be accepted.
Love all your word quizzes!
It's a gesture, that can be accompanied by speech, specifically in reference to an action - at least according to a quick internet search.
