Fabre (1981) 219–21. D. 33 (Modestinus), on the obligation of patrons stipulated in the lex Aelia Sentia to support freedmen in need. If failing to do so, they could lose the right to any services as well as a share of the freedman’s estate. Cf. D. 6 pr. 33 (Modestinus). D. 1 (Marcellus) reports a Severan ruling on the loss of ius patroni, ‘si patronus libertum suum non aluerit’. Waldstein (1986) 284. 30 D. 9 (Paul); cf. Noy (1988). Cic. Fam. 3; cf. Treggiari (1969a) 187. 31 The pseudo-filial construction of their relationship offered economic advantages to the patron, who could make claims on the freedman’s estate.
