This book is a study of the legal rules affecting the practice of female prostitution at Rome from approximately 200 BC to AD 250. It examines the formation and precise content of the legal norms developed for prostitution and those engaged in this profession, with close attention to their social context. The book explores the “fit” between the law system and the socio-economic reality, shedding light on important questions concerning marginal groups, marriage, sexual behavior, the family, slavery, and citizen status, particularly that of women.

Keywords: prostitution; law system; marriage; slavery; citizenship; role of women; ancient Rome
