`Review from other book by this author another triumph for H., providing important new insights.' R.W. Benet Salway, The Classical Review.
`His contribution to the prosopography is of top quality. As an essay on the analysis of style of the quaestors who drafted the laws, Honore's work is outstanding. The palingenesia (found on two disks in the back) listing all the laws of the Theodosian age certainly makes this a work of reference ... This allows scholars to study each individual law in minute detail.' C.Wade Meade, American Hist. Rev. June 2000.
`Not only should copies be found on the bookshelves of prosopographers and legal experts, but it is useful and valuable for any scholar interested in the late Roman or early Byzantine Empire.' C.Wade Meade, American Hist. Rev. June 2000.
Although this erudite book appeals to specialists, it also contributes significantly to the understanding of late Roman society./ (K. W. Harl, Tulane University, Choice, May 1999, Vol 36, no 9)
