It is important as the basis of the general principle of liability to person and property in later Roman law. The Lex Aquila is difficult to interpret, and it has inspired a great deal of contemporary and later commentary. Thayer's bilingual edition presents the text with a summary of commentary (in English) by scholars from the Medieval era through the 1920s. The second part contains the Latin text of De Donationibus with extensive notes (in English) by Thayer.
