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.
