Justus, Papi'rius

a Roman jurist, who lived in the time of the Antonines, and collected imperial constitutions. Of his Constititionum Libri XX. there are 16 fragments in the Digest, not extending beyond the 8th book. The constitutions cited are all rescripts of the Antonines,either Marcus alone (Dig. 2. tit. 14. s. 60) or Marcus and Verus jointly. Of the collector nothing more is known, but his date is inferred from the circumstance that the Antonines are named in the extracts taken from his work without the epithet Divus. (Aug. C. Stockmann [Car. Aug. Hennike], Papirii Justi, Icti Romani, fragmenta observatiunculis illustrata, 4to, Lips. 1792; Petr. Elisa Piepers, de Papirio Justo, Icto, 4to. Lug. Bat. 1824.)
