Description: [L'Année philologique] [Comment] The charge against Balbus, that he usurped the Roman citizenship, is unjustified. There is no warrant for the thesis that in the 2nd cent. B.C. the Latin ius migrationis was restricted by a rule that no migrant could become a Roman citizen without the consent of the city of his origin.
