a Roman jurist, who is not mentioned by Pomponiua, though he lived before Pomponius.
That he was a jurist of some note may be inferred from the fact that Paulus wrote eighteen Libri ad Plautium [PAULUS, JULIUS]. Javolenus also wrote five books ad Plautium or ex Plautio, and Pomponius seven books. Plautiua cited Castit. sius. (Dig. 34
. tit. 2. s. 8) and Proculus (dig. 35. tit. l. s. 43), and was cited by Neratius priscus, who wrote Libri ex Plautio [NERATIUS PRISCUS]. Plautius therefore lived about the time of Vespasian. (Grotius, Vitae Jarisconsult.;
