This chapter presents the interpretation of the term damnum iniuria, the harm to property for which the lex Aquilia supplied a remedy. It argues that the expression is an asyndeton in which iniuria refers to unlawful harm. While the suggestion runs counter to the interpretation which Peter adopted in one of his essays, the theme may be appropriate since exploration of iniuria in its various manifestations was one of Peter's abiding interests.

Keywords:   damnum iniuria, Peter Birks, harm to property, injury, Roman law, unlawful harm
