(p.61) 6 Observations on Depositum Irregulare
Roman Law, Scots Law and Legal History

William M Gordon

Edinburgh University Press

Depositum irregulare where the depositee is bound to return not the original deposit but an equivalent had some classical roots but was more fully developed in Justinianic law. It can hardly be described as an institution in classical law but was recognised in exceptional cases and it seems that it was not confined to bank deposits as might be expected. Interest could not normally be claimed in the action depositi but it cannot be ruled out that a iudex could allow it on the basis of his officium as judge.

Keywords:   Depositum irregulare, Bank deposits, Actio depositi, Interest
