Abstract

The essay focuses on a statute, CTh. 9.7.1 (= C. 9.9.28), issued by Constantine in 326 AD, considering its juridical and social profiles. By means of this statute the emperor establishes the mistress of an inn (domina cauponae) to be liable to adultery charges; on the contrary, the servant (ministra) shall not be liable to prosecution for adultery, because she is not held by the bond of the law according to the baseness of her life (vilitas vitae).
