Intertium and comperendinus dies

Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with an examination of the theory that intertium is a descendant of comperendinatio. It explains that intertium developed from Gaius' comperendinus dies in a way that differentiates between the two. The most noticeable similarity between them is the occurrence of denuntiare in both contexts. The fact that under the lex Irnitana the announcement is to be perfomed in biduo proximo enhances the similarity. The chapter also examines the limits of association between intertium and comperendinatio. The last sections describe the statim, nondum, date, and the survival of the Lex Pinaria.

Keywords: comperendinatio; denuntiare; biduo proximo; statim; nondum; survival; Lex Pinaria
