Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Nazir

Folio 33a

IF [THE PERSON APPROACHING] TURNED AWAY SUDDENLY [WITHOUT BEING IDENTIFIED] HE IS NOT A NAZIRITE etc.: The reason [that he is not a nazirite] is because the other turned away, which would show that had the other come before us, he would become a nazirite. Who is the author [of this opinion)?3
