This chapter discusses Theodosius II's legislation up to March 16, 437, the date of the last law included in the Theodosian Code, and the quaestors who were responsible for drafting it. Theodosius II was the son of Arcadius, and he was only seven years old when the executive power was thrust on him. In this chapter, only ten of the 14 quaestors during the reign of Theodosius II are discussed, as well as the respective laws that they had drafted.

Keywords:   Theodosius II, legislation, Theodosian Code, quaestors, Arcadius
