This is a book about the law and life of Rome-in which contributors respond to John Crook's injunction to 'think like lawyers' by ranging as far as ancient Greece, ancient Persia and modern Denmark to expound their themes and draw comparisons. An opening section focuses on Civil Law, more or less as conventionally conceived, with chapters on the peculium, on municipal law at Irni in Roman Spain, on advisers of Roman provincial governors, and on violent crime.Roman perceptions of the physical and human worlds are the focus of a second section, and comparisons between Greek, Roman and modern ways of thinking about law and government come into the third section. In the final section, contributors argue the history of law and life from refractions of real and imagined Rome.Table of ContentsList of Contributors Introduction Peculiar Questions Diem diffindere: die Vertagung im Urteilstermin nach der lex Irnitana Consilium praesidis: Advising Governors Aspects of Violent Crime in the Roman Empire Mental Maps: Seeing like a Roman Aeneid 6.826-35: Homer and Caesar's Gallic Command Dido's Treasure at Tacitus Annals 16.1.3 Direct Democracy, Ancient and Modern Advocacy, Logography and Erotesis in Athenian Lawcourts Herodotus and the Iranian Tradition Philosophy, Rhetoric and Legal Advocacy Pro and anti: the dignitas of the Senate in 88 B.C.
