Graveyards and Groves: A Study of the Lex Lucerina
The historic American Journal of Ancient History. This volume contains a study by John Bodel on the legal and linguistic aspects of the so-called lex Lucerina inscription. Bodel argues that the ordinance - prohibiting dumping dung/refuse, abandoning corpses, and performing sacrifices in honor of the dead - pertains to civil rather than sacred law.
