Table III

By: Ava Horstmeyer

Table III

The twelve tables were harsh. They were written in 450 B.C.E. The Praetors came up with this law. The twelve tables had to be strict because the population was growing and they need more complex rules. When The law wasn't clear the Praetor would base it off of his opinion.

Rules of table III:

1. Debt is given 30 days to be paid.

2. If the thirty days has passed and the person still hasn't paid he can be arrested.

3. If someone doesn't promise the money the person will be taken away.

4. The Debtor may be bound for up to 60 days.
