Source: Wikipedia's "Town crier" article
I was watching a cutscene from an Assassin's Creed game. In the scene, a town crier got everyone's attention by shouting "Oye, oye!" instead of "Hear ye, hear ye!" I wondered if that was common for town criers, so I hopped online to do a little informal research and discovered that interesting tidbit about the name "bellman."
