The Peculium in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The Peculium is a separate mass of goods within the patrimony of the paterfamilias that is given to one of his agnates, or his slaves, to administer them autonomously.

This estate was legally part of the pater's estate , so strictly speaking there is no talk of another estate, but it has the capacity to be administered without the prior consent of the pater .

This, as a way of solving the problem of the inability of the filiusfamilias to own property on their own account, since their status as alieni iuris limited the exercise of ownership.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
