Abstract:     
This paper (written in German) analyses a paragraph of the Pandects of Roman law, as compiled by Justinian I in AD 533.

The original text of Book IX 2, 23, 2 states: ULPIANUS LIBRO OCTAVO DECIMO AD EDICTUM IDEM IULIANUS SCRIBIT, SI INSTITUTUS FUERO SUB CONDICIONE SI STICHUM MANUMISERO ET STICHUS SIT OCCISUS POST MORTEM TESTATORIS, IN AESTIMATIONEM ETIAM HEREDITATIS PRETIUM ME CONSECUTURUM: PROPTER OCCISIONEM ENIM DEFECIT CONDICIO: QUOD SI VIVO TESTATORE OCCISUS SIT, HEREDITATIS AESTIMATIONEM CESSARE, QUIA RETRORSUM QUANTI PLURIMI FUIT INSPICITUR.

The English translation is: Julianus further says that if I am appointed an heir under the condition that I will manumit Stichus, and Stichus is killed after the death of the testator, the appraised amount that I will be entitled to will likewise include the value of the estate; for the condition was not fulfilled on account of the death of the slave; but if the slave was killed during the lifetime of the testator, the estimated value of the estate cannot be considered, because the greatest value of the slave during the preceding year was retroactively taken into account (S. P. Scott, The Civil Law, III-IV, Cincinnati, 1932).
