‘Or if the (written) law (which is against us) chance (που) to be contradictory, either to any other law of repute, or to itself; as, for example, in some cases one law enacts the validity of all contracts whatsoever, whilst the other (of the two opposite laws) forbids the contracting of any engagement contrary to the law (except those that the law allows)’. On this Victorius, ‘Exemplum hoc est legis legi repugnantis; ἀντινομία autem id vocatur. Alterius vero exemplum, cum lex aliqua secum ipsa discordat, omisit, ut rei sua vi satis notae’.
