    Slave dealers hide under some sort of finery any defect which may give offence, and for that reason the very trappings arouse the suspicion of the buyer. On the other hand, a negligent action that unintentionally results in an entry on the land is a trespass only if it causes harm. Females themselves did not inherit, but their male issue could.

    Here, Bannon explores the ways in which Romans balanced the potentially conflicting needs of conserving a valuable resource and securing a personal supply of water. Chapter 1, "Rationality and Rationing a Common Resource" uses the lens of commons theory to evaluate the scheduling strategies Romans adopted to maintain private water supplies. Insight into the life of a domestic slave has been left by Seneca. The treatise advances a system of principles of natural law, which are held to be binding on all people and nations regardless of local custom.
