Excerpt: ... LEGAL INDEX. A. Lex Aerrtia, proposed by the tribune Aebutius, but at what time is uncertain. It prohibited the proposer of a law concerning any charge or power, from conferring that charge or power on himself, his colleagues, or relations. Agr. 2, 8. Leges Agrariae, Vid. Lex Sempronia. Leges Annales, laws fixing the ages for enjoying different offices. A law was passed for this purpose, A. U. C. 573, which had been proposed by L.

Lex Aurelia, (judiciaria) by L. Aurelius Cotta, praetor, A. U. C. 683. It ordained that judices, or what we would call jurymen, should be chosen from the senators, equites, and tribuni aerarii. These last were officers chosen from the plebeians, who kept and gave out t...
