Description
This history of Roman arbitration covers a long period and a vast area, from a small Italian city in the sixth century BC to every part of the Roman Empire in the seventh century AD. The authors describe the procedures by which those who lived under Roman administration dealt with their disputes. They rely not only on the great mass of legal learning preserved in Justinian's Corpus Juris but on literary works and on original sources that have survived as public inscriptions on stone and bronze, or as private documents on wax tablets and papyrus. The volume brings back to life the men and women who believed that by mediation they could get issues of electoral corruption, boundaries, the quality of wine and niggling family rows resolved.
