Canon IX.139139    Concerning those who have found in the open field or in private houses property left behind them by the barbarians.

Now, those who have found in the open field or in their own houses anything left behind them by the barbarians, if they have once been put on their trial and convicted, ought to fall under the same class of the repentant. But if they 20have declared themselves and made restitution, they ought to be deemed fit for the privilege of prayer.140140    [Partially elucidated below in (the spurious) Canon XI. See Marshall’s Penitential Discipline of the Primitive Church.]
