This chapter seeks to make a modest contribution to modern knowledge on wrongful damage to property by focusing on the slave as the object damaged or destroyed. It attempts to compile a ‘normative profile’ of the types of slave which the jurists envisaged in their exploration of the lex Aquilia, with a view to establishing whether such a focus better informs modern understanding of the Roman law of delict.
