Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the quaestors during the reign of Arcadius, the son of Theodosius I. From the style of the laws that were enacted during his reign, it can be distinguished that six quaestors existed, although none of them are known by name. The laws that were composed in 396–9 mark both a revival of legal culture and a public acknowledgement of its importance.

Keywords: quaestors; Arcadius; Theodosius I; laws; legal culture
