Chapter Summary

The sub-title to this chapter, "Cicero's Letters of Recommendation and Private International Law in the Roman World", combines two pieces of autobiography. The author comes across the concept of Private International Law and realized that it could be applied to the Roman Provincial scene, exploring this for the first time in a paper delivered in 2005 in a conference in honour of Professor Werner Eck. The chapter concludes the survey with the case of Pausanias, a citizen of the free city of Alabanda in the province of Asia, which Cicero, acting for the patrician T.Claudius Nero, brings to the attention of the governor of the province of Bithynia, P. Silius Nerva, in 50 BC: de Pausania Alabandensi sustentes rem, dum Nero ueniat. The discussion has by no means attempted to do more than skim the surface of the issues raised in it.

Keywords:Cicero's Letters; International Law; Professor Werner Eck; T.Claudius Nero
