Facsimile from an Edict of King Rotharis, A.D. 643.

Translation.

LXX If anybody of another the great toe from the foot severs, he pays solidi sixteen. LXXI If the second toe from the foot he severs, he pays solidi six. LXXII If the third toe he severs, he pays solidi three. LXXIII If the fourth toe he severs, he pays solidi three. LXXIIII If the fifth toe he severs, he pays solidi two. LXXV Upon all these damages or injuries, above described, which among men exempt occurred, therefore, a heavier punishment, have we placed than our ancestors, that the Faida (feud, vendetta), that is, the hatred, after the receiving the above described (ssta suprascripta) punishment, may cease, and, moreover, not be required, nor craftiness
