CASCIONE, Cosimo. Breviter su D. 25.2.2 (Gai. <10> ad ed. praet. tit. de re iud.). Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.1, pp.134-138. ISSN 2411-7870.

The article offers an exegesis of a short text from Gaius' edictal commentary, now included in the Digest title de rerum amotarum actione (D. 25.2.2, originally dealing with the consequences of the actio iudicati). The aim of this paper is to reject the position saying that matres familiarum could not be suited by way of infamous actions. For D. 25.2.2 bans a turpis actio no more than adversus uxorem (i.e. a "shameful trial" against the spouse), it concerns only the inner familiar relationship between husband and wife. So the fragment cannot be used as a general statement, valid for all women. Therefore it was normal to summon a woman with an actio furti (and also with an actio iudicati). On the basis of the Gaian fragment, the extent of use of the word addicta remains uncertain, but there is no reason to argue that women could not be subjected to addictio.
