    DescriptionRoman Litigation has long been a difficult subject for study, hampered by a lack of information concerning the practical operation of the civil courts. Using newly discovered evidence, the author of this new book presents a lucid new interpretation of how civil trials in classical Rome were commenced and brought to judgement. The new evidence adds enormously to our knowledge of Roman courts, and the author uses this evidence to create what is a valuable and original contribution to the literature on Roman Civil procedure.

    Review quote
    lucidly presented, but of a technical legal nature For the specialist, it is something of a landmark. The Classical Outlook, Vol. 77, No. 2, Winter 2000 a painstaking review of our assumptions about Roman civil procedure ... a closely argued, technical book. It is a 'must' for anyone interested in Roman law procedure or the lex Irnitana. Andrew Lintott, Journal of Roman Studies, LXXXIX 1999
