Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on Antinoopolis papyrus I.22. First, it discusses a fragment that illustrates the limits of protection afforded to a plaintiff who has sued a pupil. The first illustration is mutilated, and concludes with words iudicum dabitur. The second illustration, from quodsi to praetorio, appears to narrow the relief mentioned in the first illustration. The third illustration, beginning with Item Pomponius scribit, alters the facts significantly by introducing the matter of adjournment. Arangio-Ruiz provides the best explanation of the exceptio that the text originally read non obstabit exception or contained some equivalent negative expression to make clear that a plaintiff would not face an exception rei iudicate in those circumstances. The latter sections look into adjourning in a case with a false tutor, adjourning and reconvening, and adjourning without the fictional day.

Keywords: Antinoopolis papyrus; iudicum dabitur; quosi; praetorio; Item Pomponis scribit; Arangio-Ruiz; adjourning
