In the middle of the 6th century A.D. the antecessor Stephanus taught the codification of Emperor Justinian, explaining the Latin text of the Digest in Greek. In particular, he discussed the condictiones from D. 12,1 in detail. From fragment 11,2 it would appear that Stephanus introduced a specific name for the condictio, namely ο απο καλου δαπανηματος κονδικτικιος. This name refers to the facts of the casus. Only when ο δανειακος κονδικτικιος cannot be granted to the bona fide borrower, ο απο καλου δαπανηματος κονδικτικιος can be granted by virtue of justice and equity. For this to apply it is necessary, however, that the money lent has been spent.
