PREFACE TO T H E PAPERBACK EDITION This is corrected edition, minus the Latin text, of the four-volume The m e s t of Justinian, Latin text edited by Theodor Mommsen with the aid of Paul Krueger, Englishtranslation edited by Alan Watson,published by University ofPennsylvania Press in 1985. This edition incorporates a number of corrected translations. I am grateful to all who called suggested changes to my attention, and in particular to Tony Honor6 and Olivia Robinson. The biggest change has been a new translation by Sebastian and Olivia Robinson of the Dkdoken, the Greek version of the preface, "The Confirmation of the Digest." The previous edition repeated the translation of the rather different Latin preface. A note about the appearance of the pages. The pagination of the Mommsen edition has been maintained, as was done in the original four-volun~e hardcover edition. As a result, the pages of the translation vary in length.
