This is a sociolegal study of the role of the Roman familia in legal and commercial transactions in classical times. The Roman ?family? included slaves and freedmen as well as wives, children and relatives and it served as the basis for legal and quasi-legal activities. In this study, socio-economic data shed light on the law and legal rules illuminate aspects of the extended family.
