Summary/Abstract: SC Claudianum decreed that any free woman, Roman or Latin, pursue relationship with the slave of another, and she fails to abandon the relationship after the denouncement of the slave’s master, will become the slave of the master denouncing her deed. In this paper we are aiming to discover the actual content of this decree of the Senate, as well as trying to determine whether the goal of the decree was to defend or even promote social morals, or to defend sexual morality, or even to give protection to certain interests and authorities of the parties involved.
