Namu'sa, Aufi'dius

one of the numerous pupils of Serv. Sulpicius. There were ten of the pupils of Sulpicius who wrote books, and from the works of eight of them Namusa compiled a work which was distributed into one hundred and eighty parts or divisions (libri). The work of Namusa is cited by Ulpian (Dig. 13. tit. 6. s. 5.7), Javolenus (Dig. 35. tit. 1. s. 40.3), and Paulus (Dig. 39. tit. 3. s. 2.6); and we are thus made acquainted with some of the legal opinions of Servius. As to the expression "his auditoribus," used by Pomponius (Dig. 1. tit. 2 s. 2.44) see Grotius, Vitae Jurisconsult. and Zimmern, Geschichte des Röm. Privatrechts, vol. i. p. 293.
