Note 138
From Chapter 44 of the Decline & Fall

The heredium of the first Romans is defined by Varro (de Re Rustica, l. i. c. ii. p. 141, c. x. p. 160, 161, edit. Gesner), and clouded by Pliny's declamation (Hist. Natur. xviii. 2.). A just and learned comment is given in the Administration des Terres chez les Romains (p. 12 - 66.).
