'This is a wonderful book. The making of Justinian's Digest seemed in prospect to be a task so huge as to be beyond man's power to tackle.
The centre of Honor 's Tribonian is the account of how it was done.
This is set in the life-history of the man whose energy kept despair at bay.
The book is in the end not only a contribution to legal history.
It is also a tool and manual of research.' Peter Birks, Classical Review
