This chapter begins with a sketch of the way that Peter used animals, in particular the classification of animals, to illustrate his legal arguments. It then considers in detail some aspects of the Roman law relating to bees, including the Aquilian liability of a defendant who burned bees — a topic which Peter liked to ponder in discussion with students and colleagues.

Keywords:   animals, bees, Peter Birks, Lex Aquilia, Roman law
