Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses an analysis of the 151 laws that were enacted during the Milan Period (395–401). Fragments of these laws survive and allow identification of their respective quaestors: Hadrianus, Felix, Decius Albinus, Florentinus, and Alethius. The Western laws show less marked changes of style than the Eastern laws, so that to fix periods of quaestorial office is more difficult in the West than it is in the East.

Keywords: Florentinus; Alethius; Milan period; quaestors; Western laws; Eastern laws; quaestorial office; Hadrianus; Felix; Decius Albinus
