Titius Aristolocked

  • Tony Honoré

Extract

Titius Aristo, a Roman lawyer of high repute but possibly low birth, alive in 105 ce. He learned from C. *Cassius Longinus(2), was expert in public and private law, and was admired by *Pliny(2) the Younger (Ep. 1. 22, 8. 14). Active as legal consultant and advocate, he perhaps acted as adviser to *Trajan. He collected decisions known as decreta Frontiana, perhaps rulings of the senate presided over by a consul named Fronto. Sextus *Pomponius collected various writings of Aristo under the title Digesta (‘Ordered Abstracts’); but his work survives only in citation.
