The favorable interpretation is to allow the freedom left [him] by the father; and that he is seen as having been the father's property from the beginning is shown by what happened subsequently. VETERANS 1 ARRIUSMENANDER, Military Law, book 3: The privilege of veterans has among other things the prerogative that, even in criminal offenses, they are distinguished from others in their punishments. Therefore, a veteran is not thrown to the beasts nor beaten with rods. 2 ULPIAN,Opinions, book 3: The exemption [from public burdens] granted to those who have been honorably discharged from their military oath holds good even in those civitates in which they live; nor is that [exemption] undermined if one of them undertakes an office or a public duty of his own free will. 1. All persons are liable to pay [land] taxes and to support the religious burdens of their patrimonial estates. 3 MARCIAN, Rules, book 2: Veterans and their children have the same honorable status as decurions; accordingly, they shall not be condemned to the mines, nor to forced labor, or to the beasts, and they are not beaten with rods. 4 ULPIAN,Duties of Proconsul, book 4:A rescript sent to the veteran Julius Sossianus stated that veterans are not exempt from the duty of paving the road. For it is clear that veterans are not excused from contributions which arise from their possessions . 1. It was also stated in a rescript to the veterans Aelius Firmus and Antoninus Clarus that their ships could be requisitioned. 5 PAUL,Judicial Examinations, sole book: The deified Great Antoninus and his father wrote in a rescript that veterans are excused from ship-building. 1. They also have exemption from the collection of [personal] taxes, that is, they may not be made collectors of taxes. 2. But veterans who have allowed themselves to be appointed to the ordo [of decurions] are compelled to discharge the duties.
