See the old law in Justinian's Code, (l. v. tit. v. leg. 7, tit. xxvii. leg. 1,) under the years 336 and 454. The new edict (about the year 521 or 522, Aleman. p. 38, 96) very awkwardly repeals no more than the clause of
mulieres scenicae, libertinae, tabernariae.
See the novels 89 and 117, and a Greek rescript from Justinian to the bishops, (Aleman. p. 41.)
