The twelve tables of law
If one has maimed a limb and does not compromise
with the injured person
, let there be retaliation. If one has broken a bone of a freeman
with his hand or with a weapon
, let him pay a penalty of three hundred coins. If he
has broken the bone of a slave
, let him have one hundred and fifty coins.
If one is guilty of insult
, the penalty shall be twenty-five coins.
If one is murdered while
committing theft by night
, he is rightly slain.
It is unlawful for a thief to be killed by day....unless he
defends himself with a weapon
; even though
he has come with a weapon
, unless he shall
use the weapon and fight back
, you shall not kill him.
And even if he resists
, first call out so that someone may hear and come up.
A person who had been found guilty of giving false witness shall be hurled down from the Tarpeian Rock.
