The twelve tables of law
Navigate this page:
If anyone summons
a man before the magistrate
, he must go. If
the man summoned does not go
, let the one summoning him call the bystanders to witness and then take him by force.
He whose witness has failed to appear may summon him by loud calls before his house every third day.
One who has confessed a debt
, or against whom
judgment has been pronounced
, shall have thirty days to pay it in. After that forcible seizure of his person is allowed. The creditor shall bring him before the magistrate. Unless he pays the amount of the judgment or some one in the presence of the magistrate interferes in his behalf as protector the creditor so shall take him home and fasten him in stocks or fetters. He shall fasten him with not less than
fifteen pounds of weight or
if he chooses
, with more.
If the prisoner chooses
, he may furnish his own food. If he does not, the creditor must
give him a pound of meal daily
; if he chooses he may give him more.
