Abstract

388 COMPTES RENDUS must be prevented or punished; the jurists still assumed a formal equality before the law. Finally there is a brief comment on the sacredness of their signa for the legions, symbolic of their corporate existence. Among the technical features I liked in this book was the continuous numeration of the footnotes in each chapter, which simplified cross-references – and the footnotes them- selves were where they belong, at the foot of the page! There were times when I thought the author tried to hang too much on too few texts, as in his discussion of the actual status of imperial statues in 2.4.5; I also felt he might have drawn comparisons with modern reactions to the ‘desecration’ of the national flag in places such as the United States and Spain. There was perhaps insufficient consideration of the importance of manumission as the carrot urging most slaves to good behaviour. But these are trivial; this is a thorough survey, of an interesting topic, a topic that could be linked too with the problem of pardon. Glasgow O.F.
