Sample text

Note on the Text: On videatur (“signify”) see on Case 72. Signare means “to seal” or “affix one’s seal to”; summutare (“to substitute, exchange”) could refer to the vessel but also to the wine. The facts: A wine vessel is marked with the buyer’s seal. It remains in the seller’s wine cellar. The legal question: Has the buyer taken possession with his seal? Discussion Questions: Trebatius affirms that traditio [“delivery”] has taken place and therefore presupposes that the buyer has taken possession by agreement with the seller, who wishes to surrender possession.

Sed videamus, inquit, ne haec ipsa corporis traditio sit, quia nihil interest, utrum mihi an et cuilibet iusserim custodia tradatur. in eo puto hance quaestionem consistere, an, etiamsi corpore acervus aut amphorae adprehensae non sunt, nihilo minus traditae videantur: nihil video interesse, utrum ipse acervum an mandato meo aliquis cutodiat: utrubique animi quodam genere erit aestimanda. Translation: (Javolenus in the fifth book of his Excerpts from the Posthumously Published Writings of Labeo)29 Labeo says that one can acquire possession of certain things animo: for example, when I buy a pile of logs and the seller authorizes me to take them away, the pile is seen to have been transferred as soon as I have taken custody of them.

We find both narrower and broader interpretations of this corporeal principle and, in the following discussion, we aim to analyze the most important of the pertinent case-distinctions. The animus possidendi [“intention of possessing”] is a topic that Cases 7 and 11 are particularly concerned with. Literature: Schulz, F. Einführung in das studium der Digesten. Tübingen: Mohr, 1916, 16 ff. Gordon, W. M. Studies in the Transfer of Property by traditio. Aberdeen: University of Aberdeen, 1970, 44 ff.
