Abstract

The qualification ‘vir bonus’, involved by an ancient judicial rule and by asponsio (linked to this rule) containing the clause ‘ni vir melior esset’, whichare both attested in a fragment of Cato the censor, expresses a positiveassessment from a moral point of view and not from a social point of view,as is shown by all the sources we have for the III-II century BC. Theemergence and the diffusion just in this period of a figure of vir bonuscaracterised in a moral sense is probably due to a political and economictransformation of the Roman society.
