Lat. In Roman law. The solum italicum (an extension of the old Ager llomanus) admitted full ownership, and of the application to it of usueapio; whereas the solum provinciale (an extension of the old Ager Publicus) admitted of a possessory title only, and of longi temporis possessio only. Justinian abolished all dis- tinctions between the two, sinking the italicum to the level of the provinciale. Brown. Solum rex hoc non facere potest, qnod non potest injuste agere. 11 Coke, 72.
