The text of Gaius’ Institutes concerning the price of a sale contains a curious peculiarity. Gaius first ofall reports the requisites of the price in the form of peremptory rules, but soon afterwards he indicatesas consequence (nam...) a contrast of views: some jurists admit the relevance of a sale which doesn’tobserve these requisites. The Author suggest that the (merely) apparent contradiction is an exampleof the particular approach ‘operativo-cautelare’ of the whole work: Gaius wants to point out, in a‘warning perspective’, the conditions to be complied so that the effect of the legal transaction is sureand beyond dispute, by distinguishing from the case in which the effect is uncertain.
