Notes

  • Epigraph: 'Any citizen of a Latin city was to be able to buy and sell, to hold and inherit property, in any other city, in full confidence that he would be protected by the law of that city in so doing; and if he married a woman of another city, his marriage was legitimate and his children could inherit his property accoding to law.

    The Latin words which expressed these two mutual rights, COMMERCIUM and connubium, are still in use in various forms in the languages of modern Europe.' - History of Rome.
