Notes

This is a slightly revised and translated version of my article "Les comportements familiaux de l'aristocratie romaine (IIe siècle av. J.-C.-IIIe siècle ap. J.-C.)" published in Annales ESC 42, no. 6 ( 1987) :1267-85. I warmly thank Martine and David Bell for their help in the preparation of the manuscript.

Abbreviations used in the notes are the standard ones found in L'année philologique and the second edition of the Oxford Classical Dictionary.
