Ad legem Glitiam. An enigmatic lex publica, the fasti of the years 21 and 22 AD and the form of the cognitory querela inofficiosi testamenti in the 1st century AD. The research investigates the contents of the enigmatic lex Glitia, whose comment Gaius discussed in a liber singularis of which only a fragment survives (in D. 5,2,4). In this regard, after the examination of this Gaian text and of its placement in the title 5,2 of the Digest, the author discusses: the prosopography of the gens Glitia of Falerii Novi, the consular fasti of the first Tiberian age (and therefore the date of the lex Glitia), and finally the elusive evidence relating to judicial bodies dealing out justice extra ordinem with regard to testamenta inofficiosa (eg. the septemviral college). It is concluded that the lex Glitia (21 or 22 AD) would probably have given an initial regulation to the cognitory querela with a structure which, however, is not known in detail.

Keywords: Lex Glitia; Gaius D. 5,2,4; cognitio extra ordinem; querela inofficiosi testamenti; consular fasti
