Interesting Roman LawsReading some Roman history I found an interesting law that indicated that the testimony of a Slave against their Master was not legally admissible unless it had been extracted via torture. - The logic of this was that the Slave would be loyal to his/her Master and would not reveal any damaging or incriminating evidence unless coerced.
Seems like it could be an interesting story premise. - A Roman Citizen is accused of committing some crime, so, in the name of justice, some sexy slave girls that he recently purchased are taken down into the dungeons to get to the truth of the matter. - It will take quite a bit of work and effort to figure out what secrets they might be hiding.
Anyone know of other quirky Roman laws that might make a good story hook or premise?
