Livius 41. 8. 10 describes as civis and libertinus the Latin who had been first transferred by mancipatio to a Roman who had then manumitted him. The author criticizes the opinion this passage proves that among the Romans, as a result of the manumission of the son given in mancipio, was established a proper patronatus. The author is rather of the idea that here the issue is that the relationship is only shaped on the patronage relationship. The Livius’ passage is to be interpreted considering strictly the actual case taken into account by the historian.
