Summary

Landownership around the end of the sixth and the beginning of the fifth centuries BC represents one of the most problematic aspects of the history of archaic Rome, chiefly because of its numerous and complex social implications. It is a subject which has also given rise to historiographic controversies, above all during the nineteenth century, when it received the attention of distinguished historians, jurists and sociologists because of the important ideological and political considerations in their debate on the origins of private property. It is appropriate to recall some of the key issues of that debate here.
