    Interesting. I half-expected you to say that we are approaching such a system in the U.S. A number of states have the death penalty, and indeed sentence offenders to death, yet rarely carry out an actual execution, whether due to delays imposed by multiple layers of judicial review, or for other reasons.

    Doug Berman often claims (I’m simplifying a bit) that in recent years, Texas has been the only state that routinely executes.

    Nate,

    Not having ready access to either Adriaan Lanni’s Law and Justice in the Courts of Classical Athens (2006) or the Cambridge Companion to Ancient Greek Law (2005), I can’t make the comparison with classical Greece, so I’m wondering if you know how Roman Law differed from Greek Law on this score. Thanks.

    SPQR stands for “Senatus Populusque Romanus” which translates “The Senate and People of Rome” — it stood for the citizen body of the Roman state.
