MANTOVANI, Dario. Declamare le Dodici Tavole: Una parafrasi di XII Tab. V, 3 nella declamatio minor 264. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.597-605. ISSN 2411-7870.
The declamatio minor 264 ascribed to Quintilian contains a paraphrase of the Twelve Tables (V, 3) that has not been recognised so far. The way in which the declaimer ingeniously twists the wording of the lex while keeping its legal content provides precise, useful insights into the relationship between Roman law and declamations: a literary relationship which does not consist in direct appropriation nor indifference or otherness, but in a close and well-informed emulation.
