Summary/Abstract: With the help of archival material, author in this work reviews some fundamental questions referring to the institute of epitropes in Dubrovnik law. First, it is pointed to the origin of this institute which is very complex. The author believes that it may bear relation to Roman post classical law on one and Byzantine law on the other hand. Further, the provisions about epitropes which are contained in Statutorum civitatis Ragusii and Liber Omnium Reformationum are analysed. For the purpose of comparison there provisions of epitropes in the statutes of other coastal cities are also studied.The numerous perceived similarities and some important differences are outlined together with the concluding considerations.
