Headword: Ῥευξωρία
Adler number: rho,106
Translated headword: wife's property, matrimonial property
Vetting Status: high
Among Romans [this term means] mutual inheritance between wife and husband.
Greek Original:
Ῥευξωρία: παρὰ Ῥωμαίοις ἡ μετὰ γυναικὸς καὶ ἀνδρὸς ἀλληλοκληρονομία.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the unpublished Lexicon codicis Barocciani 50.
The vocabulary of this whole entry is unusual, including the noun ἀλληλοκληρονομία (a few instances in legal sources); cf. very generally kappa 1781. The headword itself (attested in this form only here) is clearly related to the Latin word uxor and its adjective uxorius. Lewis & Short s.v. the latter quotes the phrase in arbitrio rei uxoriae (twice in Cicero), which may be relevant; note also abhorrens ab re uxoria (Terence). The phrase ἐπὶ τῆς ῥεϊουξωρίαε (Latin in Greek letters) is reconstructed from abbreviations in the scholia on imperial laws (Basilica) 17.1.38. Küster suggested emending the Suda's lemma to ῥεουξωρία or ῥὲς οὐξωρία on the basis of legal glosses (not yet available in the TLG).
