Unsigned article on p696 of

LE′GES POMPEIAE. There were various Leges so called.

Pompeia, proposed by Cn. Pompeius Strabo, the father of Cn. Pompeius Magnus, probably in his consulship B.C. 89, gave the Jus Latii or Latinitas to all the towns of the Transpadani, and probably the Civitas to the Cispadani (Savigny, Volksschluss der Tafel von Heraclea, ZeitschriftIX).

––––––––– de ambitu. [Ambitus]

––––––––– de imperio Caesari prorogando (Vell. Pat. II.46; Appian, B. C. II.18).

––––––––– judiciaria [Judex]

––––––––– de jure magistratuum (Suet. Caes. 28; Dion Cass. XL.56; Cic. ad Att. VIII.3) forbade a person to be a candidate for public offices (petitio honorum) who was not at Rome; but C. Julius Caesar was excepted. This was doubtless the old law, but it had apparently become obsolete.

––––––––– de parricidiis [Cornelia de sicariis]

––––––––– tribunitia (B.C. 70) restored the old Tribunitia Potestas which Sulla had nearly destroyed. (Sueton. Caes. 5; Vell. Pat. II.30; Cic. de Leg. III.9, 11, in Verr. Act. I.15; Liv. Epit. 97). [Tribuni]

––––––––– de vi was a Privilegium, and only referred to the case of Milo. (Cic. Phil. II.9; Ascon. and Schol. Bob. in Argum. Milon.).
