Foreign Merchants in the Sulpicii and Jucundus Archives.
In my Master's thesis I was focusing on foreigners (not Roman citizens) and persons of freedman status with foreign origins found in the archives of two Roman banker families (Sulpicii and Jucundus) from 1st century CE. I was trying to identity how they were treated by the Roman law and what was the influences of foreign laws foreigners were using in recorded transactions. My conclusion was that foreigners adapted to Roman law and there was no big complications for them to operate within Roman law, most of the restrictions could have been easily evaded. Influences of Greek law in recorded transactions were minimal.
